We have an exciting opportunity for a number of Speech and Language Therapists to join the Ealing team. We currently have positions available in our Early Years, Mainstream Schools and Special Schools Teams.

These permanent positions would provide the opportunity to work with a varied caseload across pre-school, primary and secondary settings. Successful applicants will further develop and consolidate their speech and language therapy knowledge in a highly supportive environment whilst learning and advancing their skills within Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy.

You will work in close partnership with parents/carers and professionals to provide support at a universal, targeted and specialist level for children, young people and their families.

Developing our team members in their career path is the corner-stone of this.
