An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Audiologist to lead and further develop Paediatric and Adult Audiology services within Moray. The post shall include both clinical duties and day-to-day operational leadership and management, with the post holder reporting to the Head of Audiology for NHS Grampian. The department comprises 1 x band 6 Audiologist (0.6 WTE), 1 x band 4 Associate Audiologist (1 WTE) and 1 x band 3 Assistant Audiology Practitioner (0.4 WTE).

The department provides Audiology services for the whole of the Moray area with clinics held at Elgin, Buckie and Turriff. The post holder shall be based in Elgin, but will be expected to participate in peripheral clinics as required. Clinical services provided within Moray include UNHS, Adult and Paediatric Assessment and Rehabilitation, as well as Tinnitus clinics. The post holder should be familiar with the theory and application of advanced diagnostic procedures, such as oto-acoustic emission, Auditory Brainstem Responses and Quick-SIN.
