We are Sirona care & health, a Community Interest Company committed to providing local communities with a range of high quality specialist health and social care services across South Gloucestershire, parts of Bristol and Bath and North East Somerset. For us, it’s about the personal approach; we take pride in what we do and deliver the high standard of care that we’d expect for ourselves and our families.

We are looking for a vibrant and motivated Band 19 Speech and Language Therapist, with a Community Rehabilitation ethos to join our small but very supportive Speech and Language Therapy team in South Gloucestershire, just outside of Bristol. The role is based at Downend Clinic but requires visiting people in their homes or nursing homes. It also occasionally covers our two inpatient units in Thornbury and Yate.

The successful candidate would work in the multi disciplinary community team providing assessment and management of communication and swallowing difficulties in a mixed caseload, predominantly progressive neurological conditions and stroke but also dementia and general medical conditions.

They will have a real passion for their work, with excellent communication skills, a positive attitude, and the ability to work closely with colleagues and carers to give an evidence-based service and help to improve service users’ quality of life and work towards therapy goals.

We provide excellent clinical supervision and have access to expertise and support from other Speech therapy and MDT colleagues as well as links to other local SLT services.
