Our specialist radiography recruitment consultants have established a reputation for placing high-quality candidates in a wide range of diagnostic and therapy vacancies across the UK, in both the NHS and private sector. We offer radiographer or sonographer jobs in areas specialising in fields such as: MRI, CT, general and radiotherapy, on either a locum or permanent basis.
What is a Radiographer?
Radiography is an important role within the wider diagnostic healthcare team, using highly technical equipment to take detailed images of the insides of patients’ bodies to help accurately diagnose and treat ill or injured people.
There are two types of radiography jobs:
Diagnostic Radiographers produce and analyse high-quality images of the body, screening for abnormalities and playing a role in surgical procedures. Diagnostic Radiographers work closely with patients, and could find themselves working in various hospital departments, including the operating theatre, Emergency Department and on the wards.
Therapeutic Radiographers work as part of the oncology team and deliver treatment using x-rays and other radioactive sources. Staff in this area work closely with medical specialists to treat malignant tumours or tissue defects, often planning and delivering a full course of treatment for a cancer patient, from initial diagnosis right through to post-treatment follow-up care.
Around 90% of Radiographers work in the NHS, with the remainder working for independent hospitals and clinics, or in research and development based roles at universities.
What Does a Radiographer Earn?
Newly qualified Radiographers can expect a basic salary of between £21,692 and £28,180 per annum. However, there are plenty of opportunities for progression, and an experienced radiographer can earn up to £35,000 a year, while those at the highest level of clinical practice may earn up to £68,000.
To practice as a diagnostic or therapeutic radiographer, you must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the regulating body for Radiographers. To register, an undergraduate or postgraduate degree/diploma is required.
Those considering radiography jobs should enjoy meeting new people – as the role involves working very closely with patients, communication and ‘people skills’ will be highly valued. Radiography requires understanding and operating cutting-edge technology, so an interest and ability in science is a must – as is the ability to think quickly and proactively in high-pressure situations.
Just be aware that a career in this area could mean working shifts and unsociable hours. However, locum work may offer more control over working patterns for many healthcare professionals.
Locum Radiography jobs
Considering locum radiography jobs could be a great move for your career, or provide an opportunity for you to see whether you want to pursue a permanent role in this area. As a locum, you will provide cover for a position left temporarily vacant (whether by sickness, leave or other reasons), and it could see you working in a range of work environments and specialist areas that you may not otherwise get to experience.
Locum radiography jobs give you the independence to work when and where you choose, and given that you’ll be working less hours, you could also find more time to complete any studies. Locum staff often earn a higher rate of pay, although this should be weighed against job insecurity, and the fact that you won’t be entitled to sick pay, a pension or maternity benefits.
