Band 6 Speech and Language Therapist

The Cambridgeshire Community Adult Speech and Language Therapy team is a small, friendly service providing input across a wide geographical area.

An opportunity has arisen for a full time Band 6 Speech and Language Therapist to work across the East of the County. This community post provides swallowing and communication input to a varied and interesting caseload, in community wards, outpatient clinics and home visits. The successful candidate will be supported by the band 7 team leader and will have regular contact with other colleagues from the neurorehabilitation and community teams, and opportunity for joint working with complex patients.

There would also be an opportunity for the post holder to work in the field of voice, seeing patients referred from ENT. Training will be provided if required.

Post graduate dysphagia competencies are essential, but further training and development in the field of dysphagia will be available to a post holder with limited experience in this field. Applications are invited from therapists who are currently in band 5 posts with dysphagia competencies who are looking to develop into a band 6 role.The ability to travel across the county is required.

Regular clinical and line management supervision will be provided and the wider County team meet for clinical days.

Please contact us if you have any questions about how our team or the Trust is operating differently during the period of the Cvoid 19 pandemic. We will be very happy to discuss this in further detail.
