We are the national independent regulator for organisations that remove, store and use human tissue for research, medical treatment, post-mortem examination, teaching and display in public. We also give approval for organ and bone marrow donations from living people.

We aim to maintain confidence in the system by ensuring that human tissue is used safely, ethically, and with proper consent. We were established in 2005 following events in the 1990s that revealed a culture in hospitals of removing and retaining human organs and tissue without consent, so ensuring appropriate consent in the use of human tissue is one of our guiding principles.

The interests of the public and those we regulate are at the heart of our work and we are looking for a Transplant Officer to perform a broad range of activities that support the management and coordination of our assessment process for living organ and bone marrow donation across the UK. 

Your exceptional organisation skills will allow you to prioritise competing demands while still maintaining excellent attention to detail even when assimilating complex information. As you will be responsible for managing individual projects, project management experience will be advantageous while a proactive nature will see you ask the right questions and solve any concerns as they arise.

A clear, confident and concise communication style with the ability to build excellent working relationships at all levels will be essential to your success in this position as you will support advisory groups, deliver presentations and be the first point of contact for a diverse range of enquiries.

How to apply?

To apply for this role, please submit your application via the NHS Jobsite, including a personal statement detailing how you meet the person specification criteria outlined in the job description.
