Band 7 – £40,057 – £45,839

Relocation package available for this role.

The Centre for Hearing and Balance Disorders in Coventry has an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic Clinical Scientist or Audiologist with experience in providing vestibular assessment and rehabilitation, and with a passion for adult hearing rehabilitation.

Our Adult Services include a comprehensive range of diagnostic assessment services and hearing rehabilitation, including a new BAHA service, Tinnitus support services, and balance assessment and rehabilitation. We liaise with a variety of services including ENT, neurology, and physiotherapy. The department is a joint adult/paediatric service, and this role is predominantly within the adult service but with some scope for paediatric work.

As the training lead, you will support both external and internal training opportunities and coordinate our clinical placements. There are many opportunities to develop and lead research and innovative projects within the team and, as a senior clinician, we will support your leadership development through training and development opportunities.

You must have NHS experience and Masters level qualification in Audiology and HCPC or RCCP registration to apply for this role. The role may be offered as a Band 6 role progressing to Band 7 following the completion of any essential training required if you do not meet the essential criteria in the job description.

Within a teaching hospital, we are an established training site for PTP and STP Audiology. We serve a population of about 500,000 across Coventry and Rugby providing full adult and paediatric services. There are excellent road and good rail links for commuting. The service is extremely well supported by the Trust through the leadership of the Director of Clinical Diagnostics.

We currently work 37.5 hours over a 4.5 day week (or 9 day fortnight). We also provide a monthly dedicated training session for all staff to provide opportunities to ensure your CPD is maintained.
