Band 7 Highly Specialist Orthoptist

£37,570 to £43,722 full time permanent 37.5 hours

We are looking for a highly motivated and experienced orthoptist to support the development of Orthoptic services within the Trust. This is a full-time permanent position based at Hull Royal Infirmary. The Eye Department consists of a team of 15 Consultant Ophthalmologists, 11 Orthoptists as well as Optometry and Nursing colleagues. This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced Orthoptist to project manage and develop a new area of the service with stakeholders.

The post holder will be involved in general orthoptic clinics, paediatric clinics, paediatric neuro-ophthalmology clinics, specialist adult motility clinics, Low Vision Services / Visual Stress (dependent on experience), occasional visual field assessment and vision screening, as well as taking a significant role within the department’s growing undergraduate teaching programme. There is also the opportunity to be involved in Glaucoma monitoring clinics and wider support of the Ophthalmology service as the department develops.

This post is a permanent Band 7/6 dependent on previous experience and will be available from March 2020.

Applicants must hold a Degree or Diploma in Orthoptics and be registered with the HCPC with experience in all aspects of the orthoptic work load. Experience in the area of working with children with special needs and service development would be beneficial as would recent experience in research and writing service development documents.

The post holder may be required to travel to community clinics covering Hull & East Yorkshire therefore a current UK driving license and access to a car would be advantageous.

We reserve the right to close the job advert early in the event of a high number of good applicants. Previous applicants need not apply.
