Role: Audiologist/Hearing Aid Dispenser
Location: Weston-Super-Mare to cover clinics in  Nailsea, Burham-on-Sea, Portishead and Clevedon
Hours: We're happy to consider applicants looking for 2-5 days work per week
Experience level: For this role you will need to be a qualified Audiologist/Hearing Aid Dispenser and able to HCPC register

 

Come and join our hearcare team in Weston-Super-Mare! 

 

We have a large hearcare team of 7, including 4 other HADs, 2 administrators and our Hearcare Director Angela. We run clinics at our hub store in Weston-Super-Mare and our spokes in the Specsavers stores in Nailsea, Burnham-on-Sea, Portishead and Clevedon. We also offer home visits which Angela covers, and wax removal which we're keen for you to get trained up on if you're not already! We even have two dedicated hearcare rooms in our hub store in Weston-Super-Mare. 

With a recent influx of NHS patients many of our stores now provide as many NHS hearing tests as they do private hearing tests. Specsavers are now accredited by over half of the NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups in England to provide NHS hearing services in local community settings, helping people to get the assistance they need with their hearing closer to home. You’ll therefore have a variety of patients in your day to day role meaning no two days are ever the same! 

At Weston-Super-Mare Hearcare we’re offering:

  • Variety of private and NHS testing
  • Fantastic salary and bonus package tailored to you 
  • Professional fees paid for you
  • Continuous professional development 
  • Wax removal course 
  • Only one weekend day every other week (either Saturday or Sunday)

 

About You
You must be registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Hearing Aid Dispenser (HAD). You will also need to be able to drive as while Angela does all the home visits, some locations are tricky to reach via public transport. We're looking for someone who works well as a team and has a passion for audiology and customer care.
