Paediatric audiology job opportunity

Friday, January 9th, 2009

It is quite disappointing that there are not more jobs, or rather more opportunities for audiologists in paediatrics. We frequently get requests by audiologists to keep them in the loop should a position open up in paediatrics for someone without any previous experience in this field. This is obviously quite scarce since in the majority of cases you need to hit the ground running.

Today is the day I can say that there is an opportunity for a Band 5 audiologist, or even graduate who would like to pursue a career in Paediatric Audiology. Here are some details:
This is an exiting opportunity for an enthusiastic graduate who wishes to widen their experience with children, management of children with hearing difficulties in their own clinic and hearing aid work. The Department is fully staffed and there is good clinical supervision and training provided by senior audiologist and medical staff. The special clinics include paediatric neuro-otology and Auditory Processing Disorder. The Department is fully equipped with modern equipment. We have a vestibular lab which includes VNG, ENG, Calorics, Posturagraphy and Rotating chair.

Hurry! We only have a few days to submit applications.
