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
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.

bigger outside of your own organisation.
- You will be able to influence at a national level, across
organisations and systems.
