Where to find us
Are you interested in children and young people’s mental health? Do you feel passionately about the need to improve services for children, young people and their families? As a result of additional investment from Scottish Government we are excited to expand our existing and well established specialist speech and language therapy service within Greater Glasgow & Clyde Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services.
We are looking for a motivated Band 6 CAMHS Speech & Language Therapist on a permanent basis. Full time hours are available, however part time hours (18.75 hours per week and over) will be considered.
The post is fully embedded within the integrated Tier 3 Community CAMH team in Renfrew, based at the Aranthrue Centre. It is an exciting time of innovation and change with many opportunities within CAMHS, and you would join this friendly and supportive CAMH team. We are seeking candidates with a broad range of paediatric clinical experience and an understanding of the relationship between speech, language and communication difference and mental health. You would work within the multi-disciplinary framework with professionals from a range of disciplines, as well as multi agency working. A key component of the role is to facilitate access to mental health assessment, diagnosis and treatment for young people impacted by speech, language or communication difference including those impacted by neuro-developmental conditions.
Experience of working with children and young people in the context of mental health is preferable but not essential, as relevant training will be provided. Clinical supervision, caseload/workload management and mentoring are integral processes for SLTs working in GGC CAMHS. Internal and external CPD opportunities are available for staff to develop their knowledge, skills and experience, including full induction and shadowing opportunities.
It is essential that you have a Degree in Speech and Language Therapy and have current HCPC registration. Informal enquires and discussions are welcomed, please contact Yvonne Macleman, Principal CAMHS Speech and Language Therapist (07967 278577) or Caron Grieve, Principal CAMHS Speech & Language Therapist (0141 201 5031).
