University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire is located in the West Midlands and is home to one of the largest teaching hospitals in England. Our mission to Care, Achieve and Innovate is demonstrated in our reputation for innovation, teaching and research and high quality patient care. University Hospital in Coventry is one of the most modern healthcare facilities in Western Europe with £200 million of new medical and research equipment and a hospital that is at the forefront of digital imaging and technology.

We provide general acute hospital services to approximately 500,000 people from Coventry and Rugby and specialist hospital services to over one million people from Coventry, Warwickshire and beyond. The Trust has a revenue budget of approximately £473 million, we employ 5,639 staff, manage 1,380 beds and 32 operating theatres.

The Trust is made up of the following hospitals:

Hospital of St Cross – Rugby 

Are you interested in working to support the older adult in the community?

Are you motivated; a change maker and keen to be involved in a new initiative?

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dynamic Band 6 Dietitian to work in partnership with University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust and the charity Groundworks West Midlands on a project that has been funded by the National Lottery for 3 years.

The aim of the initiative is to support vulnerable and isolated people over the age of 55 in the community within Coventry through the development of the cook together eat together programme. The work will include development and support of this programme, training and education of community services and facilitators as well as supporting the nutritional needs of this population.

You will be based in the Coventry community and will be fully supported within our large, friendly, forward thinking and progressive Dietetic department.

The whole department is actively involved in student training and committed to CPD. As a member of the dietetic team you will take an active part in the provision of training programmes for A, B and C Dietetic Students.

Recruiting to Values
To ensure that we provide world-class patient care, UHCW recruits people that can demonstrate the Trust’s Values and Behaviours in their everyday life. Therefore, if you are invited to interview, you will be undertaking a Values Based Interview/Assessment, which explores not only what you do but how and why you do it.

Before applying, we encourage you to review the Trust’s Values and Behaviours Framework and Values Based Recruitment Factsheet which can be accessed on the right side of this page under the job description.

The Supporting Information Section in your application should therefore reflect your understanding of the Trust’s Values and associated Behaviours. You will be expected to provide us with examples from work experience and/or personal life which demonstrate these values through your behaviour.
