Job Title: Senior Occupational Therapist - In House Services
Salary Range: £34,788 progressing to £38,813 pa
Hours: 37 per week
We are looking for an experienced Occupational Therapist to join us to plan and deliver our services across Hertfordshire. We support Adults with Learning Disabilities who attend our Day Services and Short Breaks Services, as well as people who live in the community in our Supported Living, Outreach and Shared Lives placements. Some of the people we support also have physical and mental health needs, for example, limited mobility, dementia, cognitive impairment and behaviour that challenges.
The post holder would evaluate the current and future needs of the service and how Occupational Therapy can support our staff to deliver care to the service users, as well as provide therapeutic and meaningful activities. You would also assess and prescribe equipment and advise on solutions in providing care in a range of settings.
You would have access to additional funding and resources to support you in this role and would work in partnership with our Learning and Development colleagues to provide effective training for our staff.
We support people to live in communities using a “Connected Lives” approach and we work in partnership with health and social care colleagues.
This is an exciting opportunity to shape the way we deliver services to our service users, and as a council run provider service we aim to lead by example but remain open to change and innovation.
