With new investment from our Local Authority, we are developing an innovative joint project to further enhance and develop our Speech and Language Therapy school based provision to mainstream schools across Wrexham. We are seeking a full-time Band 7 Speech and Language Therapist to lead and implement an enhanced narrative therapy programme across the County, reaching children on the SLT caseload and those who may not be known to the service and have impoverished language as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic and school shutdowns though the past year. The lead SLT will work with Local Authority and school-based colleagues, along with mainstream SLT therapists and an allocated full-time Band 3 SLT TI, to develop and deliver this programme and measure and report on its outcomes at the end of the next academic year.

Future projects will be agreed with the Local Authority and SLT service managers, to continually develop and improve school-based provision across the County.

If you are an experienced SLT with a passion for service development, improvement and evaluation, we want to hear from you. As a key member of our local SLT service, you will be supported with regular clinical supervision, training and support from a friendly, committed and skilled team.

Part-time, full-time and job share will be considered.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
