Guy’s and St Thomas’s NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest in the UK, with an international reputation as a centre of excellence. The Paediatric Hearing Implant Programme was established in 1994 following the development of the Adult Programme in 1992. Our centre provides the full complement of hearing implants available for hearing impaired children: Bone Conduction Implants, Middle Ear Implants, Electric-acoustic Implants, Cochlear Implants, and Auditory Brainstem Implants.

We are seeking candidates with extensive paediatric audiological experience of working with deaf children, and with particular experience and interest in working with very young deaf children and their families. Experience of working with children or adults who have Hearing Implants is highly desirable for applicants, but it is essential for part-time applicants.

The post holders will work as a member of the Hearing Implant interdisciplinary team, which includes Advisory Teachers of the Deaf, Speech and Language Therapists, Audiologists, ENT Consultants, Clinical Psychologist and Administrators.

The post-holders will contribute to the assessment, selection and rehabilitation of children on the cochlear implant programme and have the opportunity to take part in both lecturing and research activities. Collaborative working is essential and active participation in the development of the service is encouraged. The successful applicants will work closely with the Principal Clinical Scientists.

An element of outreach work to local services and families for children on the hearing implant programme may be required.

The Trust encourages Individual Performance Development which is linked to the new Key Skills Framework process, to develop staff members’ professional and personal development. The team are committed to providing relevant training in the field of Hearing Implants.
