Can you demonstrate our values of Trust, Respect, Integrity and Compassion? Do you share in our ambition to create high quality, compassionate care and well-being for all? Then come and join us in a newly developed role as Meaningful Activities co-ordinator on our stroke ward at St Luke’s Hospital in Market Harborough.

We are looking for a highly organised meaningful activity co-ordinator with a positive dynamic attitude who can provide activities for stroke patients which complement the specialist care already provided by the stroke team. The post holder will become an integral part of the multi-disciplinary team helping patients to regain their confidence after a stroke by promoting a sense of mental well-being. Qualities desired are:

  • Knowledgeable of suitable activities and pastimes to support our stroke patients

  • Passionate about stroke rehabilitation

  • Experienced in planning, resourcing and carrying out events and meaningful activities

  • Enthusiastic, motivated and able to demonstrate our trust values.

  • Work under own initiative and as part of a team


As an Activity Co-ordinator you will play a vital role in our stroke patient’s recovery by providing meaningful activities to promote appropriate levels of stimulation and well- being whilst also encouraging and maintaining our patient’s current level of function to avoid further de-conditioning whilst in hospital.

We are seeking an individual who can stimulate and inspire our patients to engage in meaningful daily activities. You will be required to work 37.5 hours each week between the hours of 8am- 6pm and implement 7 day working as required.
