Are you an experienced technician and would like to join London’s largest and busiest teaching hospital? Do you have a background in engineering and wish to join an established team that provides wheelchair maintenance services to approx. 19000 users around South East London? 

The Rehabilitation Engineering Division is looking for a technician to repair, maintain and refurbish wheeled mobility, as well as carrying out deliveries/collections and adapting equipment to meet individual patient needs. The role is predominantly workshop based, although at times there will be a need to visit patients in their homes and to provide cover for mobile technicians. There is also a requirement to provide on call emergency cover on a rotational basis. This role will be subject to an enhanced and barred DBS disclosure for this purpose. 

A formal qualification at City & Guilds level in an engineering discipline would be preferred but may be compensated for by sound experience in light engineering. 

A valid and viable driving licence is essential. 

Benefits of working for Kings:

  • NHS pension scheme
  • 27 days holiday (plus Bank Holidays) increasing with length of service
  • Monday - Friday (37.5 hours per week) plus on call at weekdays and weekends (rota basis)
  • On Call Standby allowance (rota system)
  • Continuing professional development (including vocational courses i.e. NVQs etc, apprenticeships etc)
  • Travel season ticket loans
  • Childcare voucher schemes
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Lots of NHS specific high street retailer/restaurant discounts
  • Free parking (at base site in SE14)

 And much more.
