About our Trust

Our Trust is rated as 'Outstanding for Caring' by the CQC - fundamental to this is the way that we value and respect our staff. At every level, we value the diversity of our colleagues and actively champion an inclusive culture. We believe that everyone without exception should feel free to be their authentic self in the workplace.

We understand that work is only one part of life. We are committed to helping our colleagues achieve the best possible work/life balance. We proudly offer supportive, inclusive and family friendly employment and flexible working policies. We have a wide range of professional services and employee networks to help our colleagues be at their best - and find support if they need it.

Our Trust is already a Disability Confident employer and we are holding ourselves to account through the Workplace Disability Equality Standard (WDES). Our work on promoting equity and inclusion for our Black, and Minority Ethnic (BME) colleagues continues to be driven by engagement with the WRES (Workforce Race Equality Standard) and the WRES Experts Programme.

In 2019, we committed ourselves to becoming a Stonewall Top 100 LGBTQ+ Employer. We also support the national 'Veteran Aware' scheme and are an ERS Gold accredited Hospital who welcomes applications from all members of the Armed Forces communities.

For our patients, we do everything we can to deliver fair access to all our services. This includes providing interpretative and other services to meet the needs of disabled communities. We're careful to show sensitivity towards ethnic, cultural and religious differences. Our staff uphold these values and so help our care to get better all the time.

Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals (BSUH) is looking for two Band 7 Trainee Advanced Practitioners (Mammography - stereo biopsies) who are ready for the next challenge in their career.

We are looking for 2 experienced Mammographers at The Park Centre for Breast Care (PCBC) who are ready to develop their skills in this challenging but exciting role. The successful candidates will have a proven clinical record in Mammography, exceptional communication/leadership skills and a desire to provide a caring, efficient service to the patients at PCBC. They will be expected to complete the required Post Grad qualification in interventional techniques, with support and mentoring from the clinical team at PCBC.

They will be based at PCBC, although there will be occasional days when they will be expected to perform the mammograms for screening , symptomatic and assessment women, at PCBC and also the 3 mobile Screening units across East Sussex.

At Brighton Sussex University Hospital, we are undertaking a continuous journey of improvement, but our main priority is, and always will be, providing safe and high quality care to our patients and their families every day; the kind of care we would want for ourselves and our loved ones. We put our patients first and we are looking to expand our senior team with two professionals who share our values and passion for delivering quality care.

Part time will be considered.
