UK Biobank a registered charity, have opportunities for Graduate Radiographers through to Superintendent levels based in Reading, Berkshire
A Radiographer at UK Biobank is responsible for capturing high quality images according to our protocols for the Imaging Enhancement Study. They provide a key role in ensuring that the centre operates safely and efficiently.
The Radiographer will also be responsible for ensuring any ‘incidental findings’ of a potentially serious nature, observed during routine scanning, are reported in accordance with UK Biobank’s policy.
With only a 3 day working week (with no on-call work) and 6.8 weeks of annual leave per year (including Christmas & Easter shutdowns) you can also enjoy a fantastic work-life balance as well as a range of other benefits including a generous pension scheme (8% employee / 18% employer), salary sacrifice schemes, PerkBox staff discount scheme and enhanced maternity / paternity leave.
We are now looking to expand our team of qualified Radiographers to play a key role in the biggest research study of its kind ever undertaken. We are passionate about the development of our employees and offer clear routes of progression including an incremental pay structure, with extensive training programmes within the following modalities: brain, cardiac and abdominal MRI (including fMRI, Dexa and Ultrasound).
If you are a fully qualified Diagnostic Radiographer with HCPC registration, we want to hear from you! For Senior and Superintendent level positions you will be a confident leader with the ability to make key decisions and manage a small team effectively. We are happy to hear from Graduates or 3rd year students and for the right candidates we can accommodate elective placements.
Radiographers typically work 36 hours per week, this is worked as 3x 12 hour shifts with a one hour unpaid lunch break. There are also sometimes opportunities to opt for 12, 24, 42 or 48 hour contract.
Our centre is open Monday to Sunday between 7.30am - 8.30pm and Radiographers work on a rotation basis. We do open on some bank holidays but close down over the Christmas and Easter period.
