An NHS trust in Central London is on the lookout for two Senior Audiologists. There are two permanent jobs available and they told me the following on what they are looking for:

We are seeking 2 senior audiologists with good general experience to join our friendly, dynamic team. These varied and interesting roles will be involved in all areas of Audiology. In addition to the routine tasks of ENT support and adult hearing aid work, you will have the opportunity to gain valuable specialist experience in diagnostic audio-vestibular audiology, adult rehabilitation and paediatric audiology, including community and possibly third tier support. There will be scope for further training and development in all elements of audiology, and you will also contribute to the day-to-day running of the service.

You must be a good communicator and enthusiastic team-worker, with a sound general background in audiology.

To get a better idea of the department and work environment i got the following for you:

Audiology provides services across 3 PCTs at many health centres and hospitals across east London. Our local PCTs are actively supporting and funding us to develop our community Audiology services for both adults and children.

We are an autonomous service of 60+ diverse staff, including screeners, working within the forward-thinking Provider Development Directorate of the PCT. We also support our colleagues within ENT and children’s services across several acute Trusts to provide a comprehensive range of adult and children’s diagnostic and rehabilitative audiology services. We work closely with the local Education teams and Social services.

The service is very active in development, teaching and training activities at all levels. We are an accredited training centre for the CAC (adults only at present), HCC (Paediatric assessment and Vestibular assessment and rehab) and all elements of the BSc/MSc clinical training placements.
