A rare opportunity to earn as you learn as part of Boots Hearingcare. We are now looking for future stars in Hearing Aid Audiology to join our in-house Audiology Development Programme, which will enable you to become a qualified Foundation Degree Audiologist with a rewarding career.

What you’ll be doing…

Initially you will start as a fully-funded student Hearing Care Assistant studying on our internal Boots Hearingcare course. Upon successful completion you will work in clinics within our stores whilst continuing studies to expand your scope of clinical practice.

By September 2019 you’ll become a student on our fully-funded Foundation Degree Course delivered by Aston University. Whilst undertaking your studies, you will work out of one of our fabulous stores gaining experience in a client facing environment to become a fully qualified Hearing Aid Audiologist and enjoy a varied and rewarding career with Boots Hearingcare.

The skills you’ll need…

If you have a passion for helping people and an interest in healthcare and / or technology, we want to hear from you. Along with these attributes, we look for candidates who:

We will sponsor the cost of your studies whilst paying your salary during training.  You can also benefit from a Boots discount card and life assurance cover after completion of probationary period, pension scheme, employee assistance programme, childcare voucher scheme, and long service awards.

Upon successful qualification you will be offered a permanent contract as an Audiologist. We will try to offer you a store close to where you live but as part of fully-funding your qualification we may require you to relocate on qualification to fill key stores where customers require an audiology service.
