Job Description

The Role

We are looking for an enthusiastic therapist for a non-clinical role supporting schools. You will be part of our current SaLT team of five therapists.

The ideal candidate will be creative and open to working in new innovative ways to support schools.  You will be comfortable using ICT and social media platforms. You enjoy developing and delivering training, both online and face-to-face.  You will be able to think ‘outside the box’ and will enjoy working with a range of media and technology professionals alongside teachers, teaching assistants and SaLT colleagues. You will have an interest in research and keep up-to-date with current practices within education and speech and language therapy.  

Every day will be different. Your week could include:

  • Contributing to the project teams developing, piloting and implementing new packages.

  • Providing training to education staff and SaLTs in the use of Speech Link Multimedia Ltd.’s products.

  • Acting as a tutor on our new online Link CPD training course.

  • Researching and writing articles for ‘The Link’ magazine and our blogs.

  • Providing support to our SLCN Help Desk.

What do you bring to our team?

With at least 2 years of post-qualification experience working with children in mainstream schools, your flexibility in thinking enables you to identify solutions for working differently from the traditional approaches to service delivery. You will have the creativity and ability to develop innovative ideas. Your excellent communication, presentation and IT skills give you the confidence to be an engaging and effective guide and trainer. In addition to your current RCSLT and HCPC membership, and enhanced DBS, you will have a full UK driving licence.
