These jobs will be F2 Locum Appointments for Service (LAS) with a 12 month fixed-term contract but are not recognised training programmes. Appointees will not be part of the Foundation School and so will not have access to all educational resources including the Foundation Programme e-portfolio.

However, the appointees will receive the same educational opportunities as the recognised posts.

There will be no access to remedial training if the applicant does not attain the relevant level of competence at the end of the fixed term contract.

Successful applicants will be required to complete all pre-employment checks (e.g. provide satisfactory references, undergo criminal record checks) before a contract of employment will be issued.

This vacancy is open to all applicants, although priority will be given to exisiting NHS At Risk employees working in Essex who meet the essential criteria (excluding all medical recruitment).

Please note that where response levels are exceptional we may close the post before the specified date, therefore early application is recommended.
