Sherwood Forest Hospitals (SFH) is an award winning, modern and friendly trust, dedicated to providing outstanding care.  We are an improving organisation with strong leadership, a clear sense of direction and an exciting vision for the future.  Our staff and volunteers strive to ensure the patient is at the heart of everything we do.  

At SFH we value our staff.  We know that happy, highly motivated, engaged staff are key to providing the highest quality care for our patients. We offer a range of staff benefits, excellent training facilities and a modern, well equipped working environment.  We’re committed to enabling colleagues to maximise their potential and enjoy satisfying careers, underpinned by our staff health and wellbeing strategy; ‘Happy, Healthy, Here’. 

If our vision, values and ethos appeal to you now is the time to join #Team SFH. 

What our staff say about us from our recent anonymous Staff Survey: 

'The organisation is a good place to work with strong values and a clear commitment to quality of care and patient experience.'


 

We are looking for qualified ODPs with excellent communication skills, who can promote team motivation and have the ability to work collaboratively with other professionals.

Experience within the Operating Theatres is an advantage but not essential as we offer a comprehensive training programme for newly qualified staff. Experienced staff can expect good opportunities for further education and development. You will be expected to work weekends and nights once trained.

There are two Obstetric Theatres, 1 Ophthalmic Theatre, 1 ENT/Max fax, 4 Orthopaedic Theatres, 4 General Surgery/Gynae/Urology/Breast combined Theatres and 1 Emergency Theatre which is available 24/7.

There is an internal rotation programme once trained where you will do nights and weekends.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

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.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
