HOURS:               Full time posts available


Want to work in a friendly, high achieving district general hospital in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside?

An exciting opportunity has arisen for dynamic and motivated individuals to join the enthusiastic consultants in the acute paediatric service at Airedale NHS Foundation Trust. The department offers a supportive and encouraging environment in which to develop as a professional.

The substantive posts have been developed due to the reconfiguration within the acute paediatric team. We would welcome applicants with sub-specialty interests to complement the existing team.

Applicants should possess, or be within 6 months of receiving, a CCT at the time of the advisory appointments committee.

The appointment will be on the basis of the new consultant contract laid down by the Hospital Medical and Dental Staff Terms and Conditions of Service.

Our high performing Hospital is led by people who believe that a fantastic quality of life can go hand-in-hand with progressive working practices.

Our award winning hospital is also in an award winning location providing genuine opportunities for a great work-life balance. Yorkshire has recently been voted as the third best region in the world by Lonely Planet, and our local town of Skipton has been voted as the best place to live in the UK by the Sunday Times, commending its top class schools, great transport links, low crime and beautiful surrounding countryside.

Any offer of employment for this post will be subject to the Trust being satisfied that the result of an enhanced disclosure of criminal convictions, including checks for the Protection of Children/Vulnerable adults, does not indicate that you are unsuitable for the post.

If you are successful, as a condition of your employment you must provide us with your original DBS Disclosure Certificate prior to commencing in post as part of the pre-employment check process unless you are registered with the DBS Update Service in which case you can provide us with your surname, date of birth and certificate number to enable us to complete a status check.

If you are offered a position which requires you to undertake a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check, the Trust will administer the DBS check on your behalf and will recover the cost (Enhanced £44) from your first full month’s salary. This is a condition of your employment.

You are encouraged to participate in the DBS Update Service and pay the £13 cost per year.

Please provide the requested information within your application form:

  • Current or most recent designated body (DB)
  • The name and contact details of the current/most recent Responsible Officer (RO)
  • Date of last revalidation/expected date of next revalidation

Your employment as a doctor brings with it an obligation to engage with all the processes of revalidation, job planning and appraisal.  Please ensure when nominating references at the end of your application form that you include referee details for your current Medical Director or Clinical Director to comply with Trust requirements. 

Please be aware that we will also approach your current or most recent Responsible Officer for a reference.  If this information is not provided and you are shortlisted, the HR department will request this information from you prior to an interview.


Thank you for your interest in the above post.  It is with pleasure that we enclose further details.

Prospective candidates are encouraged to visit the Trust and meet members of the management team and other senior members of staff. Appointments can be made for a visit at any point prior to the date of interview.
