“I consider myself a lucky one to have figured out what I love to do!”
Hidden Hearing’s People Who Care series is designed to introduce you to just a few of our many hearing healthcare providers who serve you with professional, personalised care at our nationwide locations.
Jim Williamson has been an audiologist with Hidden Hearing since 2007 and works in our Blackrock clinic in Cork.
"My name is Jim Williamson. I chose to become an audiologist because I am naturally fascinated by Hearing and the phenomenon of sound, and I wanted to pursue a career that satisfies my curiosity and supports my passion.
I wanted to pursue a career in medicine, and audiology sounded interesting. On completing my studies, I started my career with Hidden Hearing, and I can honestly say that it is the job of my dreams. It's challenging and rewarding in equal measure, and I get to make a positive difference, improving people's hearing and quality of life.
I have been working with Hidden Hearing Cork for 14 years now. We provide a professional, expert service, treating patients with dignity and respect. We earn our patients trust and enjoy lifelong relationships, providing free aftercare services for hearing aid users.
Our industry is constantly evolving. We are learning more about the impact of hearing loss on the individual and the correlation between hearing loss and other medical conditions.
Hearing diagnostics and hearing aid technologies continuously improve, delivering better style and comfort and an enhanced sound experience. It's exciting to be working at the cutting-edge of hearing health. I get great satisfaction seeing the transformation in my patients following their hearing aid fitting. They grow in confidence and become more conversant, gaining a newfound appreciation for sound and a new lease of life."
