Job Description

Speech and Language Therapist

Location: Nottingham Recovery Network

Salary: £35,392 - £37,350 FTE

The Vacancy

We are open to full time; part time and job share applications.

Nottingham Recovery Network is a partnership of organisations providing a range of drug and alcohol treatment services in Nottingham City. We serve a diverse population, including those experiencing homelessness, learning disabilities, brain injury and neurodiversity. This new post has been created in recognition of the importance of communication to the engagement, assessment and treatment of people we support.

We are looking for a speech and language therapist to provide vital support to teams to develop their understanding of communication needs and implement the Accessible Information Standard.

The post holder will work closely with the Consultant Clinical Psychologist to advise and guide teams to tailor interventions for individuals. They will have a small caseload for individual assessment of people most in need.

As the sole Speech and Language Therapist in the service, regular external support will be provided by Leigh Andrews of Change Communication, who has a wealth of specialist knowledge and experience of delivering SLT services to those experiencing homelessness, substance use and related difficulties. Regular connection with professional networks will be supported, including membership of the Homelessness Clinical Excellence Network and access to a National Practitioners Group for SLTs working directly with people experiencing homelessness.

Through the Nottingham City Severe and Multiple Disadvantage (SMD) Partnership and the Nottingham Practice Development Unit (PDU), there will be opportunities to champion the importance of speech and language therapy for those facing SMD and influence other local agencies. The PDU also provides access to a wide range of learning and development opportunities.

Applications from paediatric SLTs welcome.
