Would you like to make a difference in Audiological care? If so, we may have just the role for you.

This is an excellent opportunity for an individual wishing to gain sound experience in a very busy and friendly service and who wishes to develop their skills and knowledge further. If you’re looking for experience in adult services, complex services for patients in balance, tinnitus, adults with learning difficulties, community ENT and secondary care ENT this could be the role for you.

We are a community based service which means we provide specialist care to patients at our main hub at Shelley Road in Bournemouth, domiciliary care within patients own homes and we work from 10 other outstations across East Dorset from Christchurch to Wareham therefore you will be expected to cover any one of our out stations at any time (travelling expenses are reimbursed).

Our team at East Dorset Audiology are proud of being caring, competent and compassionate, with patients at the heart of what we do. We aim to provide high quality services which improve the health, well-being and independence of the people within our community. We are currently looking for an Audiologist to join our friendly team who possesses and who demonstrates behaviors that underpin this vision for audiological care.

We also have a comprehensive Paediatric service for babies, pre-school and school age children and we are working with other local Trusts to provide a Pan Dorset Local Children’s Hearing Service. As a service we are also working towards IQIPS accreditation which will enhance the service even further.

The successful candidate will be enthusiastic, well-motivated, flexible and will provide a comprehensive diagnostic and rehabilitation service for our adult patients. Good communication skills are essential, together with the skills to provide excellent patient care and make clinical decisions as you will be required to work both solo and as part of a team.

In return we can also offer you:


  • Dedicated career pathways and great opportunities for continuing professional development
  • An excellent preceptorship programme for newly qualified nurses and the chance to further your career in a nurse led environment
  • You will receive a comprehensive and structured induction programme and training
  • Monthly pay plus enhancements for night, weekend and bank holiday working
  • NHS Pension scheme

  • Holiday pay of up to 33 days, plus bank holidays pro rata, dependent on service

  • Not forgetting our unique selling point – our Trust beach huts located along the famous Sandbanks coastline
