Job Description

Independent Vascular Services Ltd are seeking to recruit qualified or partly-qualified Clinical Vascular Scientists at our North West vascular laboratories. We welcome applications from SVT accredited vascular scientists and graduates from the Scientist Training Programme. Graduates with PGCert and MSc in Vascular Imaging with lesser clinical experience may be considered at a lower pay band. IVS Ltd is an exciting place to work with our outstanding clinical teams spread across our eight full-time sites. The successful candidates would be joining a company of over 50 vascular scientists and 4 admin support staff.

IVS Ltd was one of the first UKAS-accredited vascular labs in the UK and we remain accredited after 8 successful years. Quality and diagnostic excellence runs throughout all areas of our business. We are fully CQC-registered as Good Provider. We offer a multitude of opportunities to diversify your career within a growing company. This includes an extremely active research team with a heavy focus on the development of 3D ultrasound in vascular applications and the design of new diagnostic protocols. There are opportunities to progress your research skills including study design, data analysis and interpretation, contribution to scientific journal publication, and conference presentations. Expansion of our training team has provided opportunities to deliver internal and external training forums, study days, and deliver lectures for STP and PTP programmes at neighbouring Universities. Further development of your scanning modalities is possible as we routinely use CEUS for assessment of EVAR endoleaks, perform dynamic imaging to diagnose MALS and PAES, undertake GCA examinations and we are experts in using trans-vaginal ultrasound for assessing pelvic vein insufficiency. We have a remote quality analysis service so quality assurance image analysis work can be undertaken from your home, using your vascular ultrasound skills but reducing musculo-skeletal risks and lengthening your career.

Full driving license and access to a car is essential.

We have a rolling machine upgrade programme, with most sites using Phillips Epiq, Phillips Affiniti or Mindray Resona scanners, with a range of portable scanners for ward scans and outreach clinics. We perform the full range of vascular ultrasound assessments at all our sites, with training available in unfamiliar modalities if required. We provide weekend cover at four of our sites which is shared between all staff and can be a significant extra source of income. Join our team and help more patients to access quality diagnostics.
