Speech & Language Therapy Assistant - Aphasia Support Group - Currently 'Dyscover at Home' Online
Established in 1994, Dyscover is a registered charity in Surrey led by Speech and Language Therapists and providing long term support and opportunities to people with aphasia – a language disability usually acquired through stroke.
The Assistant will join a small part time team, and will work closely with our existing Speech and Language Therapy Assistant, under the supervision of our lead Speech and Language Therapist for Kingston. The post holder will play an important support role in the preparation and running of our conversation groups, initially from home using the video conferencing platform, zoom. Once restrictions are lifted, face to face groups are expected to resume at the Kingston Quaker Centre. The role will include liaison with our Service Coordinator, over provision of extra activities for our Kingston members.
The position would suit someone who is proactive and organised, with experience of working in similar roles. We are looking for someone with excellent communication skills, who is confident using zoom, who has a confident and friendly manner and an ability to work flexibly and with a degree of independence. A working knowledge of Microsoft Outlook, Word and Powerpoint is expected.
