As a Speech and Language Therapist at Sheaf Training, you will have the opportunity to work with a diverse group of individuals, tailoring your expertise to meet their unique communication needs. This role offers a dynamic and collaborative environment where innovation and creativity are encouraged to achieve positive outcomes for those we support.

We are investing in our workforce and are promoting opportunities to our under-represented groups.  We value equality, diversity and inclusion and are focused on increasing the diversity of our workforce, particularly the number of Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic, Disabled and LGBTQ+ people, so that our teams reflect the communities in the city we serve. We are also supporting staff with unpaid caring responsibilities to work flexibly.
