A flexible approach to the changing workload is required, as well as the ability to prioritise your own workload to meet service need. CEBIS Specialists attend clinics, multi-disciplinary meetings, and ward rounds, providing targeted summaries in response to questions raised, and facilitating discussion of the best available evidence. Through established work within UHCW, CEBIS Specialists have developed specialist subject knowledge and built strong working relationships with clinicians. Clinicians have come to recognise the specialist information skills of the CEBIS team and the integral part they play in evidence based decision making within UHCW. This is a great opportunity to work as part of a nationally recognised model of excellence for NHS Library and Knowledge Services, with demonstrable impact on clinicians’ point-of-care decision making and the quality of care and research at UHCW. The successful applicant will ideally have some NHS experience, but it’s more important to have the motivation, communication skills and understanding of evidence based practice to ensure the provision of the best available evidence, when and where it is needed.

A postgraduate or graduate qualification in librarianship/information studies and/or experience of working within a health environment are desirable. Recruiting to Values To ensure that we provide world-class patient care, UHCW recruits people that can demonstrate the Trust’s Values and Behaviours in their everyday life. Therefore, if you are invited to interview, you will be undertaking a Values Based Interview/Assessment, which explores not only what you do but how and why you do it. Before applying, we encourage you to review the Trust’s Values and Behaviours Framework and Values Based Recruitment Factsheet which can be accessed on the right side of this page under the job description. The Supporting Information Section in your application should therefore reflect your understanding of the Trust’s Values and associated Behaviours. You will be expected to provide us with examples from work experience and/or personal life which demonstrate these values through your behaviour. All correspondence will be sent by email; please check your account regularly including your Junk/SPAM folders If you are invited to attend interview you will be asked to set up an account with the Trac recruitment system in order to confirm your interview time.
