Are you looking for a great start to your career in the NHS as a Band 5 speech and language therapist?

Come to Worcestershire and start your career surrounded by highly experienced and specialist therapists with weekly mentoring support, on the job training and access to a wide range of CPD

We have four Band 5 speech and language therapy posts within our team based in Worcestershire.

What do you need to know about us?
  • All of our Band 5 therapists have a comprehensive induction programme with ongoing regular mentor support, clinical supervision and CPD during the first 2 years post qualification
  • We’re a Balanced System® service – we work in an evidence-based way at a universal, targeted and specialist level. We’re easily accessible and you’ll find us working in settings and schools.
  • We are a supportive team, working together in early years and within our school age service
  • We invest in the professional development of our staff with internal and external CPD opportunities
  • We have excellent administrative support with two main admin bases
  • All of our team are well equipped to do their job – we invest in resources and equipment, so we all have what we need on a day-to-day basis
  • None of our team were redeployed during the pandemic and we were back to face-to-face work in September 2020 with new investment from our commissioners to support children disadvantaged by the pandemic

What are the potential opportunities within these roles?

  • Working across a range of clinical areas and settings to give you a broad clinical experience as a Band 5 therapist. This may include:

  • Working within our early years service based in Children’s Centres and Family Hubs – the first point of contact for many of our children and their families
  • Working within our mainstream school service delivering support from a universal to a specialist level
  • Working within specialist provision such as language classes, special schools or autism bases attached to mainstream schools

This might be the role for you if you:

  • Are graduating this year and you’re looking for your first Band 5 role within the NHS
  • Are a current Band 5 looking to develop your skills further or for a new opportunity in a different clinical area
  • Are looking to work in a progressive team, following the evidence base and working in creative and innovative ways
  • Are looking for a supportive team with opportunities to develop your clinical knowledge and skills
  • Value working relationships and working in a team to achieve the best outcomes for children and their families
