What you like about working at Neurosensory

Four main things I like:  That I get to help people.  The variety of clinical services I can offer clients, no two days are the same.  The great people I get to work with.  That  the Company has a double bottom line – of achieving best client outcomes and being a profitable business – and walks the talk.

Tell us about a significant career episode

I remember the first time I observed an audiologist complete a diagnostic  assessment as part of the sign off of their clinical skills .   I watched  them establish rapport with the client, carry out tests of hearing and balance, counsel the client and agree a rehabilitation program.  Seeing the range of skills they’d developed, their confidence and the care they showed the client, I was so proud I could have burst.   Getting to be part of that process is a part of my job that I love.

You made a great choice, picking audiology to study.   Wherever you chose to work a great career lies ahead of you.  If you’re looking to develop skills in both diagnostic and rehabilitation audiology, then Neurosensory is the launching pad you’re looking for.
