An exciting opportunity has arisen to work within the Jurassic Adult Community Speech and Language Therapy team based at Weymouth Community Hospital.
The team currently has a part-time Speech and Language Therapy assistant and we are looking for a new part time Speech and Language Therapy assistant to join the team, working 22.
5 hours per week (0.6wte), ideally Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. The post holder will be supported by band 5, band 6 and band 7 therapists and there is also a part time band 2 team administrator.
There will be opportunity to work with other Speech & Language Therapy assistants in the county as well. The Dorset Adult Community Speech and Language Therapy Team is developing innovative and dynamic ways of working and if you are keen to contribute to creating a better service for people living with acquired communication and swallowing difficulties we would like to hear from you.
You will be responsible for providing both a community clinical service and administrative support, as directed by Speech and Language Therapists in the Team.
The clinical service you provide is mainly domiciliary but can also be clinic based and will cover Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester, Bridport, Lyme Regis and surrounding areas.
The administrative duties will include supporting the band 2 team administrator by inputting data to the Community Information System (SystmOne), taking and responding to telephone messages, booking appointments, photocopying and filing, and maintaining office systems in line with service processes.
Training will be offered to support you in your delivery of both parts of the role.
