Band 6 - Specialist Speech and Language Therapist (Language Unit and Community Clinic)

The Midlands Partnership Foundation NHS Trust provides Speech and Language Therapy Services across the whole of Staffordshire, working with commissioners in both education and health services.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, innovative and experienced Speech and Language Therapist to join our team. The post is a permanent post based in the Community Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy Team in the East Staffordshire area. The post involves working within a Language Unit and includes a role in community clinic. The post holder will be required to work closely with staff from within the Speech and Language Therapy team, and with our partners in Education to provide support for children with significant speech, language and communication difficulties.

The base for this post is Hill Street Health and Well-Being Centre, Burton.

There may be some travel required to attend team meetings and supervision in other settings across the geographical area. The post holder will be expected to work in other areas across the East if clinical demand requires it.

This post would be suitable for experienced band 5 or 6 Therapists who are looking for the opportunity to further develop leadership skills. Internal applications are also welcome.
