''A great place to be cared for; a great place to work''



An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic dietitian to join our friendly and supportive team. The post would ideally be suited to a newly or recently qualified dietitian wishing to expand their dietetic skills and knowledge or a HCPC registered dietitian wishing to return to practice.

Applications from students expecting to graduate in the next few months will also be considered

You will work as part of a small team, with the support of experienced dietitians. The post covers a range of inpatient work including medical, surgical, orthopaedics, oncology and stroke management as well as outpatient clinics. As such you will gain experience in a wide range of clinical areas such as nutrition support, enteral feeding, gastroenterology and weight management. Opportunities to gain experience in dietetic specialist areas will be supported where appropriate.

The department is approved for training both ‘B’ and ‘C’ placement dietetic students. We have excellent IT facilities and are committed to personal development and training.

Anyone newly appointed to the trust will be subject to the completion of a satisfactory 6 month probationary period. This will give the new staff member an opportunity to become familiar with the role and working environment.

You should be HCPC registered dietitians. The post will be based at Furness General Hospital, but may require travel to other sites within South Cumbria.
