We’re looking for experienced Occupational Therapists to join our team. If you want to take the next steps in your career and make a difference to adults’ health and wellbeing, this is the role for you.
This is an exciting time to join us - our ambitious Families and Homes operating model has just launched, bringing together five key directorates: Connected Communities, Wellbeing & Independence, Care & Support, Integrated Commissioning and Housing. You’ll help our teams deliver change and provide the highest levels of care and support.
As one of our Occupational Therapists, you’ll manage a varied caseload including undertaking OT related assessments and developing person-led support plans to meet the needs and outcomes of individuals. We’ll look to you to put residents’ first, providing specialist advice to maximise the health, independence and quality of life of vulnerable adults across the borough.
We’re seeking someone with strong practical experience in occupational therapy and a passion for providing exceptional care and support. You’ll need to show excellent knowledge of OT best practices and provide expert advice to both colleagues and partner agencies, as well as to residents. Above all, you’ll empower service users; facilitating their recovery and helping them overcome the barriers that prevent them from doing the activities that matter to them.
This is a role where no two days are the same, so we need someone who can cope with a varied work load, changing environments, and high-pressure situations. As well as being a strong team player, we’ll expect you to have confidence, sensitivity and an understanding of the needs of a multi-cultural community.
The London Borough of Waltham Forest is fiercely ambitious. We want to make sure each and every one of our residents enjoys a good quality life. Over the past few years, the borough has changed significantly for the better. Good schools, great parks, excellent culture facilities, mass regeneration and budding community entrepreneurship are making it a place that people want to call home. We’ve also just been awarded the prestige of being the first ‘London Borough of Culture’.
In line with our ambitions, the Adult Social Care service in Waltham Forest has grand plans to progress to excellence. We want the service to enable the most vulnerable residents to be resilient, independent, safe and well. This is supported by the unique Think Family Strategy which sees Adult Social Care working across the Families & Homes Directorate. Waltham Forest is in a unique position to deliver this as we have strong health and community partnerships and an emerging Integrated Care System. If you share our vision, we’d love to hear from you.
Please note, once you have submitted your application we will contact you with five working days
