Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT) is one of the largest acute Trusts in the UK, employing over 20,000 staff.

We are responsible for running a family of nine hospitals across six separate sites, providing a wide range of services from comprehensive local general hospital care through to highly specialised regional and national services.

We are the main provider of hospital care to approximately 750,000 people in Manchester and Trafford and the single biggest provider of specialised services in the North West of England. We are also the lead provider for a significant number of specialised services including Breast Care, Vascular, Cardiac, Respiratory, Urology, Cancer, Paediatrics, Women’s Services, Ophthalmology and Genomic Medicine.

Our vision is to improve the health and quality of life of our diverse population by building an organisation that:

  • Excels in quality, safety, patient experience, research, innovation and teaching
  • Attracts, develops and retains great people
  • Is recognised internationally as a leading healthcare provider

A new and exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated individual to join the Lung Cancer Team at Wythenshawe Hospital as an Audio Typist / Clerical Officer.

We are looking for an enthusiastic person to join our friendly team to provide an efficient administrative service to a fantastic multi-disciplinary team. You must have good attention to detail together with the ability to prioritise your own work to meet deadlines. And you will have good interpersonal skills liaising with medical and nursing staff as well as other colleagues across the Heart and Lung Division. Your role may also include providing administration support to the Lung Health Check programme both at Wythenshawe Hospital and within the community.

You will play an essential role within the team, helping to maintain and when necessary, improve good working practices.  

You will be willing to adapt to change and learn new skills, having a good knowledge of general office procedures, together with organisational and communications skills, delivering high quality secretarial services and customer care.

We actively encourage personal development and access to training and as a result your own structured personal development plan will support your future development.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
