Are you passionate about dietetics? Would you like the opportunity to make a difference for the profession and support its development? Then this is the job for you.

 

The BDA is recruiting a Policy Officer, professional development to join our committed and successful team.  We cover all aspects of professional practice and education supporting and developing the dietetic workforce from novice to expert.

 

The post holder will be the initial point of contact for the profession on questions of professional practice. In any day you could deal with queries on developing new and extended roles, electronic records and coding, or private practice.  The role will have specific responsibility for the standardised terminology, coding and workforce development, but you could get involved in any aspect of professional development, or specific projects, events and national conferences.

 

This role is ideal for a dietitian looking for a new challenge having had experience of working in the NHS. It is not expected that the successful candidate will have all the necessary knowledge and skills to undertake the policy role, just plenty of enthusiasm, flexibility, and willingness to learn.
