Are you looking for a rewarding career in a state-of-the-art laboratory, situated in the heart of Somerset, which offers customer centric medical excellence?

Integrated Pathology Partnerships (iPP) is open to flexible working and also offers enhanced leave options, contributory pension scheme as well as MySYNLAB Benefits which provides a great range of discounts on travel bookings, high street vouchers, gift cards, days out, leisure activities and day to day spending.

In the heart of the West Country, Somerset is a destination of dramatic coastline, seaside resorts, epic English countryside including designated areas of outstanding natural beauty, and historic places. Somerset’s lively County Town of Taunton provides you with a genuine and special Somerset experience. Whereas, Yeovil, situated on the Somerset/Dorset border has a selection of modern shops only minutes away from the breath-taking beauty of the surrounding countryside. Both towns offer a fantastic mix of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities, with the added benefit of transport links with the M5, A303 and the Paddington-Penzance rail line.

Our teams are fundamental to the principle of making a positive difference to healthcare and you will receive regular training and coaching to develop your skills and to support you in your working life. In addition, to enable you to broaden your experience and increase the depth of your knowledge, thus improving your career potential, we train our scientific and support staff to work in a multi-disciplinary environment and facilitate the rotation of staff amongst key laboratory areas.

iPP is a wholly owned subsidiary of SYNLAB, the European leader in delivery of high-quality pathology testing and imaging services and operates the Southwest Pathology Services contract ("SPS") which is a joint venture between Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust and Integrated Pathology Partnerships Ltd.

Our Laboratory holds ISO15189 UKAS accreditation and is an HCPC approved training laboratory. We take a leading technological approach with a state-of-the-art automated track and analytical systems in Blood Science, Digital slide scanning and Cerebro Tracking system in Histology and Kiestra TLA in Microbiology.:

We are currently seeking a highly motivated individual who is looking to develop a career within IT to maintain information systems to support current pathology IT projects required by SPS and provide advice on pathology IT systems to laboratory staff and customers/clinicians.

In order to be considered for this position, you must therefore have the qualifications needed to meet the entry requirements for this degree programme which include:

  • A-Level AAB
  • IB 34/665
  • BTEC DDD
  • GCSE C or 4 (Grade C in GCSE English Language and Mathematic)
  • EU and international equivalences are available on the University website.

The successful candidate(s) dependent on experience would operate across our Hub laboratory in Taunton and our Essential Service Laboratories (ESL’s) at Musgrove Park Hospital and Yeovil District Hospital that operate a 24/7 service.
