This is an advanced-level dietetic assistant post. You must have experience of delivering behaviour change interventions to groups of patients with complex obesity, and be confident using virtual platforms. You should have experience of delivering interventions to people from the Black African and Black Caribbean communities.

You will collect and analyse a wide range of demographic and clinical information. In addition, the post holder will actively be involved in the Trust’s clinical governance programme and quality agenda framework for ensuring continuing professional development, audit and research activities within this specialist area.
