Whittington Health Children’s Speech and Language Therapy Services                                   in Camden, Haringey & Islington

Band 6 Speech and Language Therapist (permanent) 0.8wte (4 days a week)

Whitttington Health Speech and Language Therapy teams are seeking a passionate, innovative and flexible speech and language therapist to join our Children’s Speech & Language Therapy Services across the 3 boroughs of Camden, Haringey and Islington, which provides assessment, advice and input for children and young people (0-19) with a range of speech, language and communication needs, and their families and schools across the 3 boroughs.

Services are delivered in clinical and multi-agency teams, and in a range of settings including families homes, children’s centres, health centres, mainstream and special schools and specialist units, and the post is suitable for applicants with previous experience working with children and/or young people in any of these types of settings.

This role provides a unique and fantastic opportunity to develop a wide range of experience working across different teams and with different schools/settings/client groups as it can involve regular rotation within the 3 boroughs, all of which are managed and delivered differently, according to local commissioning, but come together under the Children and Young People’s Integrated Clinical Services Unit within Whittington Health. The Speech and Language Therapy services are underpinned by strong professional leadership.

The successful applicant will receive a period of induction and will be deployed according to service needs and clinical interest across Whittington Health. Post locations will rotate over time.

All the services provide an effective system of support and supervision, which may include 1:1, pair and/or group supervision, as well as participation in clinical networks, mentoring and other clinical learning opportunities.

The services place a strong emphasis on personal and professional development and provide opportunities for therapists to extend their clinical skills and participate in high quality training.
