We are working in partnership with the UK's leading charity for children with brain injury. They deliver rehabilitation, education and community services through skilled teams who work with children and young people, and their families.

They are seeking an enthusiastic and passionate Speech and Language Therapist to join their dynamic and innovative team working within the charity’s school residential houses. The postholder will provide evidence-based speech and language therapy assessment and intervention to a small caseload of children and young people with complex neuro-disabilities and neurodevelopmental concerns, within a multidisciplinary and multi-agency setting. The postholder will be offered regular supervision, support and external training opportunities and be part of a well-resourced and active team.

The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate:

  • 5+ years clinical experience post-basic qualification, with a minimum of 3 years working in Paediatrics or neuro-disability, and a minimum of 2 years working in Dysphagia (Dysphagia competency to Level C).

  • RCSLT recognised degree or postgraduate diploma in Speech and Language Therapy.

  • HCPC registration and Membership of the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapy.

  • Extensive experience working with children and families, ideally within a multidisciplinary team and a specialist school setting.

  • Knowledge of a wide range of speech and language therapy management, including approaches and application of techniques, for neuro-disability supported by advanced clinical reasoning.

  • Highly specialised observation and treatment skills relevant to the assessment of respiratory needs.

  • Clinical assessment and intervention skills relevant to children and/or adults with neuro-disability

We are seeking an individual with professional integrity, particularly in clinical governance, who has strong attention to detail, and is committed to working flexibly to meet the needs of the service. Advanced written and verbal communication skills, the ability to manage workload, including the delegation of tasks, and analytical and creative problem-solving skills in unpredictable situations, will be essential.

N.B. To minimise the risk of all infectious diseases to vulnerable and extremely vulnerable children and young people in their care, as well as to their employees and volunteers, they require staff to provide a valid NHS Covid Pass (or proof of Covid vaccinations or medical exemption). They also expect staff to have taken or be willing to take relevant immunisations required by the role to protect them against infectious diseases, (unless you are medically exempt). The successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
