The RCSLT have published the results from our latest vacancy and recruitment survey, which identifies trends and issues with recruitment in the speech and language therapy profession.

The results from our latest vacancy and recruitment survey show that vacancy rates across the speech and language therapy profession continue to be unsustainably high. The full results are available in the graphic below.

This follows on from our first survey in April 2023 which highlighted significant issues in the workforce.

Our third vacancy and recruitment survey is now open to anyone who manages an SLT service, whether it is based in the NHS or not, as well as those managing SLTs across different settings.

The survey is open until 29 February 2024.
