An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Highly Specialist (Band 7 equivalent) Speech and Language Therapist to join our dynamic and innovative team.

As well as holding a very small caseload of children and young people, you will be leading the development of the service we offer to children with dysphagia and tracheostomy needs across both the Children’s Trust School and Rehabilitation Services.

This is a unique opportunity for an individual with strong clinical and leadership skills to advance our service.

The Children’s Trust also offers generous CPD support and a range of opportunities to be involved in audit, research and service evaluation in collaboration with our Research Team.

The work we do is highly rewarding, and in addition to an attractive salary, we offer a valuable range of benefits, including: free on-site parking; subsidised cafeteria; on-site staff accommodation (subject to availability); the ability to retain your NHS pension (where applicable) or the opportunity to join an alternative scheme; and the opportunity to develop and implement your expertise in an environment that is as unusual in its beautiful historic nature, as it is unique in its state-of-the-art facilities.
