TEENS+ is a transitional education programme for young people with complex and severe communication needs based in South Edinburgh.
As a Speech and Language Therapist with TEENS+, you will provide specialist support to our students, as well as helping to develop and deliver our Education Programme. This is a varied role, providing a real opportunity to work closely with our students to improve outcomes and help achieve their goals.
You must be a qualified Speech and Language Therapist to apply for this role. HCPC membership is required. Experience of managing others is an advantage but not essential. Passion and a person centred attitude is necessary to fit in with our ethos.
We are looking for candidates who can work on their own initiative, as well as being part of our enthusiastic team.
The successful applicants will require membership of the PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) Scheme.
Everyone has the right to live life to the full. After a diagnosis of a chest or heart condition or a stroke, many people experience fear and isolation and struggle with the impact on their lives. Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland won’t stand for that. The care and support we deliver every day ensures everyone can live the life they want to.
The role of the Stroke Nurse is to facilitate a smooth transition from hospital back into the community, for people who have had a stroke and their families. The Stroke Nurse helps them adjust to the changes associated with the stroke, through the provision of information, advice and support.
We are seeking an enthusiastic individual who is organized and motivated, with good communication skills. Candidates must have a first level general nursing qualification and have a minimum of 3 years post-registration experience in either a hospital or community setting. Experience working with people affected by stroke is desirable. The successful candidate will work as part of a CHSS stroke nurse team within Lothian and will receive full induction and support upon commencement of this role. This role is an excellent development opportunity for a current staff nurse working within a hospital or community setting and who would like to further advance their stroke care experience.
Access to a car is essential.
CHSS employees enjoy a variety of organisational benefits including: Company pension scheme, generous holiday allowance, company sick pay, health insurance, employee welfare support and life assurance.
