School SENCO

The Children’s Speech and Language Therapy Service in Greenwich is part of Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust which has been rated amongst the top 10 in the HSJ (Health Service Journal) list of 100 best NHS organisations to work for in England.

Due to internal movement following development opportunities within the team, we are looking for an experienced and motivated therapist to co-lead a team of therapists delivering services within mainstream schools.

We are a large team with an organisational commitment for CPD to enhance clinician’s skills within areas of clinical interest. The Service has excellent internal supervision and support structures and would provide the ideal environment to develop clinical skills and contribute towards operational projects to support service development.

Our links with our partners in health and education are strong, which is emphasised by the continued commitment from many schools and nurseries to continue to commission ‘top up’ speech and language therapy services directly, meaning the impact of our work is far more significant than can often be delivered within solo commissioned services.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich is a large and culturally diverse London borough with good transport links into the centre of the city.

Please note that Oxleas operates a probationary period, further information is available on request.
