Principle duties will be clinical photography for various specialties including Burns, Plastic Surgery, Dermatology and Tissue Viability.

Experience of Ophthalmic photography would also be desirable but not essential.

The successful candidate must be enthusiastic, conscientious and be able to work independently as well as part of a wider team. You will have sufficient computer skills and be familiar with Photoshop, Image Databases and editing programs both on Mac and PC.
