HR professionals are offered many ways to be part of what we do as we recognise that by working collectively, we’ll have greater impact.

We have an opportunity for you to be part of the development of materials to support employers with the recruitment and employment of newly trained consultant clinical scientists. You don't need to be an expert in healthcare science to be involved!

We have been asked by Professor Sue Hill, chief scientific officer at NHS England, to work with the profession and employers on some materials to support the implementation of Higher Specialist Scientist Training (HSST) in healthcare science.  

We want to make sure employers will find these materials useful when they recruit newly trained consultant clinical scientists, so we need you to provide a strong HR/employment perspective. The development of role descriptors, guidance/standards on recruitment and looking at the profiles for Agenda for Change evaluation are just a few of things we will be looking at. 

We can give you the opportunity to get involved based on your own availability and interest.  

What’s in it for you?

  • You will have the chance to be part of something bigger outside of your own organisation.
  • You will be able to influence at a national level, across organisations and systems.
  • You can help to make sure that our work stays connected to services and patients.
  • There’s a lot of fantastic practice in the NHS - we give you the opportunity to share it and learn from each other.
  • You will have the chance to build and shape strategies across the NHS.
  • There are professional development opportunities to grow and learn.

We are looking for HR professionals to get involve straight away so please get in touch with Adele.Bunch@nhsemployers.org if you would like to find out more.
