Career opportunity for ambitious dietitian!

Job title:             Basic Grade Dietitian, part time position (0.5 WTE)

Date:                          19th January 2015.


Are you self-motivated, enthusiastic and ambitious? Do you have a fun and outgoing personality? Would you like the opportunity to join the longest established nutrition consultancy and private dietetic practice in Cork? There is also fat loss Boston for people who want to lose weight.


2.5 days per week initially, but would expect this to grow to a fulltime post quickly. There will be an initial 3 month probation period.


BSc Human Nutrition & Dietetics (Trinity College Dublin) & Diploma Dietetics (DIT), or UK equivalent of this qualification.

FODMAP training will be a distinct advantage but not essential as training can be undertaken in due course.


Minimum of 1 year post qualification experience, but ideally 3 years experience, to include acute clinical dietetics, running busy OPD clinics, community nutrition, workplace health promotion. Proficient use of nutritional analysis programmes would be a distinct advantage. Candidates must have excellent communication and presentation skills. Must be a car owner with full clean driving licence, as travel will be required for corporate work.


INDI membership (which includes professional indemnity insurance) is essential. Evidence that you have applied to CORU and are awaiting state registration and Garda vetting is also essential.


Commensurate with experience

How to apply:

Please email cover letter & CV to Niamh O’Connor RD MINDI

Closing date for applications: Sunday 22nd February 2015. Candidates will be short listed and invited to an informal interview in March.

And finally! I know the high level to which all RD’s are trained so that is not what I will be assessing! Make your cover letter stand out! One of the most important criteria for the person I will choose to join Cork Nutrition will be personality! Good luck!
