Would you like to join our developing specialist Huntingdon’s Disease Service and be a part of an innovative forward thinking therapy led multi-disciplinary team? Whilst the Occupational Therapy role is established within the unit, the service is undergoing a period of growth and development which brings opportunities to engage in shaping the future service provision.

The work environment is nurturing and compassionate with the prospect of developing specialist skills in all areas of Occupational Therapy practise, including risk assessments, specialist equipment provision, daily living skills, sensory and therapeutic engagement work and community-based assessments for discharge planning. The focus of this secondment will be upon continuing to build the Occupational Therapy aspect of the therapies provision in collaboration with other established AHP services.

Details of our benefits, leadership behaviours and other important information about applying and working for us are contained in the documents linked to our advert.

It is a statutory requirement for roles that involve work in care homes that staff are up to date with their Covid vaccination status to be able to work in that environment, unless the person has a valid medical exemption. Where a role requires this, they will need to demonstrate that they meet this requirement during the recruitment process.

For areas where our teams work to staffing rosters, these are set in advance at a team level and you will join an established roster. Your rostered shifts will be confirmed to you when arranging your start date.

We will consider requests to work alternative hours or vary working patterns in line with our flexible working policy.

To make the most of your application, we may consider appointable applicants for similar vacancies in different locations where this is appropriate and meets our mutual requirements.

For all substantive roles the appointment of new staff (excluding medical staff) is subject to a 6 month probationary period (see Probation Policy).

We aim to develop a workforce that reflects our community. We actively implement equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and seek people who share our commitment. We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups.
