An opportunity for a Band 6 Specialist Occupational Therapist fixed term contract or secondment of up to 9 months is available within the Community Services Team in Borehamwood.
As the Occupational Therapist in this team, you will provide specialist OT assessments and interventions, carry a caseload and supervise the Assistant Therapy Practitioner. This includes facilitation of Recovery through Activity groups in the local community and working with a reablement model of short term intensive interventions to support occupational goals.
The Trust uses the Model of Human Occupation across all settings and offers a comprehensive in house OT training programme as well as support for specialist training such as AMPS and Sensory Integration.
A proportion of time in this particular role is used to support the generic functions of the team providing opportunity to hone eg Initial assessment skills, Care coordination and safeguarding experience.
Post holders receive regular high quality supervision from experienced Occupational Therapists. We are committed to supporting CPD and developing high quality services. The Trust was rated as “good” by the CQC and examples of Occupational Therapy good practice were noted in the published report.
To join us, you’ll need to share our values of being welcoming, kind, positive, respectful and professional with excellent communication skills. Enthusiastic, dynamic, and highly motivated, you will be committed to delivering high quality care.

We also have an internal Bank Bureau for those wishing to work in the Trust on this basis, and we have a Return to Practice Programme for those wishing to return to Occupational Therapy after a break from clinical practice.
