Are you a Band 5 Dietitian looking for an opportunity to progress your career in the management of obesity or a Band 6 dietitian wanting to gain further experience or to continue working in weight management?

 

We are a Regional Centre for Bariatric Surgery and offer a Specialist Weight Management Service. This service continues to develop, and we are looking for an innovative Dietitian to join our large dynamic team of Dietitians within this teaching Trust.
