About the job

King’s are inviting applications for a Band 6 Speech and Language Therapist vacancy at our Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) and Orpington Hospital sites.

This post will commence in the Neurological Rehab rotation.

The successful applicant will provide Speech and Language Therapy within each clinical speciality, remaining within each area for 9 months. This will allow the opportunity to develop a wide knowledge base and range of skills, alongside specified learning objectives and ring-fenced learning time to achieve these. In addition, each rotation offers the opportunity to develop broader specialist skills, such as supervision of Band 5 therapists, and tracheostomy and videofluoroscopy competencies.

The acute SLT team works closely with the wider multidisciplinary teams. The SLT service offers a comprehensive supervision and CPD structure with a range of opportunities for learning and participation in both self and service development. There is a strong emphasis on the management of both communication and swallowing difficulties and the impact of SLT within the acute setting. This post requires a flexible approach to working and will require the post holder to work as part of a rota’d seven day working pattern.
