An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Specialty Doctor, with minimal or no previous experience in paediatrics, to make a lasting difference to children with brain injury and severe neuro-disability. You will gain unique experience in paediatrics, neuro-rehabilitation and management of neuro-disability.

The Children’s Trust is the UK’s leading charity for children with acquired brain injury, providing expert rehabilitation, education, therapy and care at our national specialist centre in Tadworth, and to children and their families across the UK, via our Brain Injury Community Service.  Providing residential accommodation for children with highly complex neuro-disability, we are the only centre commissioned by NHS England for Category A neuro-rehabilitation.  Additionally, we provide rehabilitation services for Category B children, including: transition, stepdown and short breaks.

As a Specialty Doctor, you will be a key member of the Medical Team, providing clinical care for children with brain injury and neurodisability across The Children’s Trust.  You will assess new children under supervision, identify clinical risks, write medical reports, and provide regular medical support.  Working hours are 9am - 5pm daily, with no obligatory Out of Hours cover.  However, we are keen to employ doctors who would be willing to contribute to the Out of Hours care.

To succeed in this high profile and diverse role, you must demonstrate:

  • Strong clinical skills, combined with excellent child and family focussed interpersonal skills
  • A caring, supportive and can-do approach

The Children’s Trust is the UK’s leading charity for children with acquired brain injury, providing expert rehabilitation, education, therapy and care at our national specialist centre in Tadworth, and to children and their families across the UK, via our Brain Injury Community Service. 

Boasting a beautiful 24-acre site in Surrey, we are located just outside of London, close to the M25 (accessible via Junction 8, A217 to Tadworth) and easily accessible via National Rail, by way of: Clapham Junction, Sutton and Epsom.

The work we do is highly rewarding, and in addition to an attractive salary, we offer a valuable range of benefits, including: including, adoption pay, time off for fertility treatment, enhanced paternity leave, paid carers leave, time out days for those experiencing menopause symptoms, time off for gender reassignment, and much more. We also offer additional annual leave days for those with long service, with entitlements ranging from 35 to 41 days (including bank holidays) depending on your length of service. Other benefits include: free on-site parking; a staff shuttle service from Coulsdon South train station to Tadworth Court; subsidised cafeteria; on-site staff accommodation (subject to availability); the ability to retain your NHS pension (where applicable) or the opportunity to join an alternative scheme; and the opportunity to develop and implement your expertise in an environment that is as unusual in its beautiful historic nature, as it is unique in its state-of-the-art facilities.

The Children’s Trust is fully committed to protecting children and young people.  All posts at The Children's Trust are subject to an enhanced DBS check.  If you are applying to The Children's Trust, and are already registered with the DBS update service, this will speed up the recruitment process significantly. 

The Children’s Trust has a duty of care to minimise the risk of all infectious diseases to the vulnerable and extremely vulnerable children and young people in our care, as well as our employees and volunteers. As a result, we require staff to provide a valid NHS Covid Pass (or proof of Covid vaccinations or medical exemption) for all roles at Tadworth Court and in the Brain Injury Community Service. We also expect staff to have taken or be willing to take relevant immunisations required by the role to protect them against infectious diseases, (unless you are medically exempt).

At The Children’s Trust we recognise how important it is to have leadership that reflects the children, young people and families that we support. We also recognise that staff, comprised of a range of skills, backgrounds and experiences will help us to better understand the needs of those we support, and how we can best represent their interests. We, therefore, particularly welcome applications from disabled people, individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds and those from other under-represented groups. The Children’s Trust is committed to achieving equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) across all levels of the organisation.
