Working as a Band 5 SLT in Dorset gives great variety and opportunities to learn. I work in a supportive environment with great leaders which all adds up to a very rewarding career. Plus, living by the beach means I can go paddle boarding after work!

About us:

The Dorset Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy Service is seeking enthusiastic, forward thinking, team players to join our friendly and supportive team of speech and language therapists in the beautiful County of Dorset, working for an Outstanding NHS Trust (CQC 2019).

You will receive regular management from your team lead as well as peer and 1:1 clinical supervision. You will have access to a range of clinical lead specialists for advice and guidance. There are excellent opportunities to access formal and informal training. New initiatives are always welcome and taken forward within the context of a Professional Development Group. Dorset Healthcare provide a very comprehensive and fully supported Preceptorship Programme for newly qualified healthcare professionals.

This is an exciting time to join our service as we are working to design a new speech, language and communication pathway for Dorset based on the Balanced System® Framework.

Employment in this post requires an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, which the Trust will cover the cost of. Applicants who subscribe to the DBS update service are able to present a valid DBS certificate instead of requiring a new check.
