You will also be working alongside an occupational therapy assistant and may be required to provide supervision to other occupational therapy staff.


Although you will be working as part of a multi-disciplinary team, comprising of nurses, healthcare assistants, psychiatrist, specialty doctor, fitness instructor and activity coordinator, a large part of the role will also involve autonomous working. You will be expected to apply your occupational therapy skills, complete thorough risk assessments and use evidence-practice to guide your therapeutic interventions.

The post holder must also be HCPC registered.
