Job Description

Birmingham Children’s Hospital (BCH) and Birmingham Women’s Hospital (BWH) have a tremendous sense of shared mission and purpose, and have enjoyed a close working relationship for decades – particularly at the clinical level. Both trusts are currently working towards becoming a single organisation and the earliest this would take place is early 2017, subject to NHS Improvement approval. The proposed integration would mean that BWH staff will be subject to TUPE.

We’re really excited about creating the first dedicated women’s and children’s foundation trust in the UK, and successful candidates will also show a commitment to our vision of an even brighter future for children’s and women’s services in the region. You can find out more about our journey on our Birmingham Women’s Hospital website under United-Futures or if you have any questions please have a chat withthe recruitment department or the recruiting manager

Note to applicants: We require references that cover the last three years of employment and you must name a current / most recent line manager or supervisor as a referee. Family friends or colleagues will not be accepted. Please include full reference contact details including correct email addresses as failure to do so will result in a delay in the pre-employment process if you are successful.
