The Role

The Children’s Integrated Speech and Language Therapy Service for Hackney and the City is a unique partnership between health and education. The resultant service works across Homerton University Hospital Foundation Trust and Hackney Learning Trust and has grown into a large and dynamic team that delivers innovative models of working. It is a welcoming, fun and supportive place to work. With well-established clinical supervision and access to CPD it is a great place to make the move and become a Specialist Speech and Language Therapist.

The post on offer will include sessions from a combination of two service areas. The sessions will either be in primary schools, secondary schools, Further Education College or a special school for secondary aged students with MLD/ ASD. The allocation of the post will be agreed with the individual and will be dependent on interest and experience.

The service employs over 70 staff and so opportunities arise frequently and staff are deployed flexibly to meet changing need. As well as working as a link Speech and Language Therapist to schools, we offer opportunities for band 6 staff to be involved in project work. This can be linked to an area of interest or clinical expertise or a wider service development project. Where appropriate the post holder can access CPD and relevant training to support them to carry out their project.

Homerton University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a high performing and flourishing organisation serving the population of Hackney, East London, The City and beyond.

In addition to this we are proud to be able to offer staff contingency and development time. This gives staff the flexibility to meet the needs of schools as well as protected time to access CPD and think about their own development.

The service has developed the largest and most comprehensive traded services offer in the UK, and as a result attracts a high percentage of direct school funding. School commissions are on an annual basis and as a result these staff contracts are also. The service has successfully secured contracts in some schools in neighbouring boroughs. We are proud to be commissioned by health, education and schools in Hackney and out of borough as well Youth Justice and Virtual Schools. We have a strong relationship with schools and alternative providers and are growing in traded services.

Posts are based on 37.5 hours a week. We embrace flexible working and will consider applicants who wish to work part-time and to work term-time only. If at all interested we strongly suggest that you call or email to discuss this post.
