This one smacks of an "internal recruitment" scam Tailzer, I must say (ie, they are only advertising the post to "make up the numbers"). Otherwise, who would want to work for an organisation where HR doesn't communicate with biomed! smile
I am happy to say it is not an 'internal' scam, our recruitment think we will get people apply by just having it on the hospital website and no where else, which as you are probably aware will not be the case. This is the 2nd of a planned 3 extra staff in my department, the 3rd being released after 1st april 2008.
I wish it was as easy to get people as having them just apply internally, but its not.
Thanks for clearing that up Tailzer. I'm sure we all hope that you get the result(s) you're hoping for, and look forward to hearing about it later on.

Yes, it seems that your HR people don't have much of an appreciation of what is required when it comes to hiring people for our sort of work. Websites are all very well, but my own observations (of many such cases like this in other hospitals) is that they can lead to, what should I call it ... laziness? on behalf of recruiters. I can't help wondering how they get on with others (doctors, nurses etc)! smile
It happens everywhere.

Seems us EBME techs have it rough lol
This one must interest you Neoteny....
Thanks, have looked into it, but dont have transport at the moment, and it will take two hours. And we all know what trains are like.
