We are looking for an individual with paediatric and enteral feeding experience who is ready to take the next step in their career with us at Calderdale & Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust. This post requires an innovative, self motivated person to provide dietetic services in a variety of clinical areas across paediatric specialities. You will have a home enteral feeding caseload with a diverse range of conditions and work closely with the enteral feeding company nurse to support these children and provide visits to educational establishments for children with additional learning needs.

You will need to have post graduate experience in paediatric dietetics and excellent organisational and communication skills, and to work flexibly in line with service modernisation.

We currently provide placements to B and C Dietetic students so enthusiasm to implement and support the training of student dietitians is vital

There is a strong emphasis on MDT working and the whole team is very motivated to achieve quality, evidence based care. You will be part of a friendly and enthusiastic team of 25 dietitians. Your career progression is important to us and we are committed to continuous professional development and student training. We are in a Directorate with other Allied Health Professionals; this will enable you to work with other therapists on projects and develop new skills that will complement your clinical work. There is excellent secretarial support and IT facilities. Good road and rail access to nearby Leeds, Manchester, the Yorkshire Dales and Peak District.
