Applications are invited from enthusiastic experienced Anaesthesia Associates to join the anaesthetic team at NHS Golden Jubilee. Good interpersonal and multidisciplinary team working skills are essential in this role. This is an exciting opportunity to join the anaesthetic service. The successful candidate will be helping to support a new Anaesthesia Associate team within the Orthopaedic and General anaesthetic team at NHS Golden Jubilee, with support from Consultant Anaesthetists.

The anaesthetic service provides delivery of anaesthesia and perioperative care to an established orthopaedic and day surgery general surgery service. An in house colorectal service, which includes major robotic colorectal procedures, has recently been established and there are opportunities to be involved in developing this service. The Pre-assessment clinic reviews a high volume of patients and there will be opportunities to develop the Anaesthesia Associate role within the clinic. The anaesthetic team also provides a PICC line and pain service for the entire hospital and there is potential for development of extended Anaesthesia Associate roles within these areas.

The phase 2 theatres expansion is scheduled to open in 2023 and will provide an additional 5 orthopaedic theatres which will lead to exciting opportunities to develop the Anaesthesia Associate role in a high volume surgical centre.

The NHS Golden Jubilee University Hospital also contains the NHS Scotland Academy and therefore there may be potential to be involved in teaching and training of perioperative staff attending courses and training days in the Academy.

The Jubilee is well connected to Glasgow City centre and is close to transport links to the airport. It is also minutes away from the beautiful Loch Lomond National Park.


NHS Golden Jubilee encourages applications from all sections of the community. We promote a culture of inclusion across the organisation and are proud of the diverse workforce we have.
