Scrivens makes sound choice for hearing training role
Post on 19th July 2017
Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care is building on its growing demand for hearing care provision with the creation of a Hearing Professional Services and Training Manager position.
Qualified audiologist and experienced trainer Kirran Saimbi has joined the company after ten years in the industry. Scrivens has been at the forefront of high street hearing care in the UK since the 1950s and has been a consistent campaigner for better, more accessible free NHS services for those suffering from hearing loss.
In the last 12 months Scrivens has appointed 25 new hearing aid dispensers, and Kirran will build on this by shaping and delivering training for the company’s foundation degree students and support its audiologists to ensure its high standards are maintained.
Kirran said: “It is an exciting time to join Scrivens. It is a well respected, independent company that is making a success of its NHS hearing care service alongside its private service and experiencing real growth.
“I am delighted to be given this opportunity. It is important for the new generation coming through that they receive quality training to develop professionally and to deliver great results for our customers.
“With an ageing population requiring more help and with the NHS looking to outsource, we have the chance to make a difference.”
Kirran started her career with Hidden Hearing. She has spent the last seven years at Boots Hearing Centre, joining as an audiologist and taking on roles in clinical support, auditing and peer training.
Operations director, Adrian Ellis said: “Kirran impressed us with her expertise and enthusiasm and is a welcome addition to our team. It has always been important to us to invest in training and support services because well trained and motivated staff drive our business forward.”
