Job overview

Applications are invited for a Junior Clinical Fellow post in Tertiary Neonatology at Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital in Cardiff.  This post is available from 26th November 2022 for 2 years. There is also a Junior Clinical Fellow post that is available from now until 5th September 2023

There are  good prospects of 6-monthly rotation through the range of Paediatric subspecialties within the Children’s Hospital, subject to your performance, interest, and post availability nearer the time. The Children’s Hospital for Wales offers a full range of Regional Specialties for children in Wales

Main duties of the job

The Cardiff and Vale University Local Health Board offers a full range of regional specialties for children in Wales. This is an exciting opportunity to gain Neonatal experience at a world class Children’s hospital, with a wealth of training and education opportunities available to successful applicants. The NICU at the UHW site provides specialised tertiary neonatal services for the whole population of South Wales with a small number of referrals from England. Whilst these are not accredited training posts, they attract the same training opportunities, including study leave, a named educational supervisor, and a very active educational program equal to that received by deanery trainees.

Working for our organisation

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board is one of the largest Integrated Health Boards in the UK, employing over 15,000 staff, providing over 100 specialist services.   Working across 6 hospital sites, we have a diverse range of career opportunities to offer. Serving around 500,000 people living in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan, we are focussed on the health and care needs of our local population whilst working with our partners to develop regional services.

Our mission is “Caring for People, Keeping People Well” and our vision is that every person’s chance of leading a healthy life should be equal.   As an organisation we are unashamedly ambitious for our population’s health, rising to the challenges of today and tomorrow through our 10-year strategy, Shaping our Future Wellbeing.    We are contributing to a healthier Wales with great emphasis placed on innovation and improvement, learning from around the world and leading the way in clinical research.   Partnership working is strong at Cardiff and Vale, and we work closely with our staff and our community.    

Cardiff, the thriving Welsh capital, is a fantastic city to live and work in with an abundance of sports, arts and cultural attractions.    Situated to the west of Cardiff, the Vale of Glamorgan offers a combination of beautiful Welsh countryside and a dramatic natural coastline.  Whether city life or rural living, Cardiff and the Vale offers the best of both worlds.
