Electronics Engineer

Appointment to either Band 5 or 6 or 7 dependent on experience

We are looking for an enthusiastic electronics engineer or technician to join the Physics and Engineering team at the Sutton branch of the Hospital. The postholder will work within a small team to support the delivery of approximately 200 radiotherapy treatments every day on 7 Elekta linear accelerators, and to perform preventive and corrective maintenance.

A sound knowledge of electronic engineering is essential, backed ideally by a level 4 NVQ (HNC, HND or BSc or equivalent) in electronic engineering or similar, and combined with a willingness to learn specifics for the hospital’s radiotherapy equipment.  To be appointed at the higher end of the salary scale, it will be essential to have prior detailed knowledge of Elekta linear accelerators, but full manufacturers’ training will be provided to less experienced candidates employed at the lower end.

The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust is an internationally renowned cancer centre, delivering high-quality care to patients from south London, across the south-east and around the world.  The Radiotherapy Department in Sutton combines expert clinical knowledge with latest technology, including an Elekta Unity, which became the first of its kind to treat patients in the UK in autumn 2018.

Interviews to take place on 31/01/2019 - 01/02/2019
