Our Trust
Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) NHS Foundation Trust comprises Addenbrooke’s Hospital and the Rosie Hospital in Cambridge. With over 9000 staff and over 1100 beds the priorities of the Trust focus on a quality service which is all about people – patients, staff and partners. Recognised as providing ‘outstanding’ care to our patients and rated ‘Good’ overall by the Care Quality Commissioner, is testament to the skill and dedication of the people who work here. CUH’s values – Together- safe, kind, excellent – are at the heart of patient care, defining the way all staff work and behave. The Trust provides accessible high-quality healthcare for the local people of Cambridge, together with specialist services, dealing with rare or complex conditions for a regional, national and international population.

We are seeking to appoint a therapist to join our busy and friendly team at the Emmeline Centre for Hearing Implants.  The Centre offers specialised assessment for auditory implantation, together with rehabilitation post implant. You should be qualified as a Speech & Language Therapist, a Teacher of the Deaf, or as a Hearing Therapist.

You will already have experience in managing children and/or adults with severe-profound hearing impairment in the health services or in educational settings. The post holder will initially manage an adult caseload, working on an outpatient basis from our department in Cambridge.

If you have strong interest but limited experience with hearing implants, please contact us for discussion. Training will be provided in this development post.

We are an innovative department, providing a comprehensive hearing implant service. You will join a highly motivated team, committed to providing a high quality service. You will be required to complete an enhanced disclosure and barring application.

We are looking for therapists with these skills:

  • Knowledge of speech, language and communication development;
  • Awareness of impact of severe-profound deafness on language development or maintenance of language skills;
  • Ability to adapt their communication skill to the language level of the client;
  • Ability to work within a multidisciplinary team;
  • Willingness to discover and work with hearing implant technology.

Working at the Cambridge hearing implant centre could offer you:

  • Experience in cochlear implants and other surgical interventions for hearing loss;
  • Chance to work in a regional specialist team;
  • Opportunities to be involved in clinical research and audit;

This post is subject to a satisfactory DBS clearance and as a result, you will be required to pay the associated fee of £47.50. This fee will be deducted from your second month’s salary.

The closing date for this post will be the 22nd February 2018.

Interviews are due to be held on the 5th March 2018.
