Hearing loss can mean people become isolated and depressed. So, as a Hearing Aid Audiologist you aren’t just helping people to hear again: you’re transforming lives and reconnecting them
with the world and the people who matter most to them. That’s a truly rewarding feeling.
Because there’s much more to Specsavers than eye tests. Hearcare is a rapidly expanding part of our business – we’re now the number one provider of private and NHS hearing care in the UK. You’ll also have plenty of opportunities to develop – we’ve made technological development and Extended Hearcare Services a key part of how we’ll continue to lead the industry. You can work full-time, part-time, at weekends or during the week – and our Pathway to Partnership even gives you the chance to one day run your own business.
As one of the UK’s leading high street Audiology providers, we’re at the cutting edge of the industry, off ering the very latest technology for our Audiology teams to use. And because we’re on the high street, we’re a handy alternative to going into hospital for NHS hearing aids.
One of the great things about building a career in Audiology is the range of options on offer.
Hearing Care Assistant
At Specsavers, we’re keen to support any of our people who want to work towards becoming a Hearing Care Assistant, via a BTEC Level 4 Diploma. In this role you’ll help the Hearing Aid Audiologist by fitting and programming hearing aids – as well as helping people to learn how to use them.
Hearing Aid Audiologist
If you love helping people, then this is the perfect role. As a Specsavers employee we’ll sponsor you to do a Foundation Degree in Hearing Aid Audiology at university – meaning you could earn while you learn. Once you’ve qualified you’ll be checking the health of ears, spotting hearing loss, programming hearing aids – and changing lives.
To become an Audiologist, you’ll fi rst need to complete a BSc (Hons) Degree in Healthcare Sciences Audiology at university. This is currently a three year degree and is usually funded by student loan.
