An exciting opportunity is available for two part-time Senior Occupational Therapists with our client.
You will join our client's friendly Therapy team, consisting of Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy and Art Therapy, and also work with a broader multi-disciplinary team, including psychologists, neurologists and nursing staff.
Providing occupational therapy assessments and recommendations for residents of the Society, you will also play an important role in helping to promote and expand their occupational therapy services.

In return our client will offer you a competitive salary, a generous holiday entitlement and the chance to make a difference to the lives of people with epilepsy.

As they have a small therapy team, they will pay for clinical supervision sourced externally. There is opportunity for regular peer supervision from within the therapy team, as well.
