An opportunity has arisen for a qualified Occupational Therapist to join our Community Occupational Therapy team. Our team provides a city-wide service to disabled people requiring assessment of their needs at home. The post involves close working with a variety of other agencies both within and outside of the City Council. Our team is very busy with a high referral rate.
You should have a relevant Occupational Therapy qualification such as a Degree in Occupational Therapy, or a Diploma in Occupational Therapy, and must have current HCPC registration.
We are committed to protecting and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expect all staff to share this commitment. This post is working in regulated activity. If you are successful we will undertake additional recruitment checks which will include a check to see if you have had any criminal convictions, a check of police information and we will check the relevant barred list(s). It is a criminal offence for a barred individual to apply for a job in regulated activity.
For an informal discussion, please contact Jan Collett, Team Manager on 0191 278 8260.
