Auditory Implant Programme Coordinator

Location John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford
Salary AfC Band 8A £45,753 - £51,668
Post 0.8FTE (30 hours/week)
Closing DateJune 29th 2021

Oxford Universities Hospital NHS Trust are looking for an Auditory Implant Programme Coordinator to take responsibility for leading both operationally and professionally the Oxford Auditory Implant Programme and Team.

The Auditory Implant Programme provides an assessment, surgical, fitting and follow up service for adults and children in the region who cannot wear or do not gain adequate benefit from standard hearing aids and is funded through NHS England Specialist Services.

The post holder will report to the Head of Audiology and lead a team of Clinical Scientists, Audiologists, Speech and Language Therapists, and a Teacher of the Deaf, and work closely with ENT colleagues to provide this highly specialist service, ensuring quality standards are met.  The post holder will also be a member of the audiology service’s Senior Leadership Team and therefore have an important role in the leadership of the wider department.

We are looking for someone with a positive approach and a can-do attitude who is able to support and lead the team and service into its next phase. You should be able to work on your own initiative, with the ability to multi-task and manage a demanding workload. We are looking for a leader and role model, with excellent organisation and communication skills and with extensive clinical experience in auditory implantation for both adults and children.

The post holder will have experience in managing teams or services, including service development, performance management, and absence management.

Although the post is advertised at 0.8FTE (30 hours/week), we are actively exploring whether this can be increased to full-time. If you would only be interested in a full-time role, then you are strongly encouraged to make an informal enquiry and/or submit an application.

Applicants should have an MSc in Audiology and be an Audiologist or a Clinical Scientist (Audiology) registered with the Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists (RCCP), the Academy of Healthcare Science (AHCS) or the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC, registered as a Clinical Scientist).
