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.

 

The post holder will be based at Heartlands Hospital and work alongside the established Specialist Weight Management Team and Senior Bariatric Dietitians within a closely integrated service that links both medical and surgical directorates.

 

Clinical work is predominantly in the out-patient setting, working with individuals and groups, with some in-patient work. Teaching skills, a multidisciplinary approach and enthusiasm for research and a developing service are essential.

 

Therapies at HGS are committed to providing a 7 day therapy service with participation in bank holiday cover for dietetics.

 

The department gives CPD a high priority and we would actively support the development of your knowledge in this area. We take both B and C placement dietetic students, and have excellent IT and secretarial support.

Part time hours will be considered.
