The successful candidate will be based on the male wards at the Becklin Centre and will have an oversight of the OT needs of the 2 wards, delegate work to the band 5s and OTAs, and handle a complex caseload of service users. Experience of working in an acute mental health setting and of the MOHOST is essential as is the ability to manage junior colleagues. The role includes management of the male OT team which currently consists of 2 band 5 OTs and 2 OTAs. The post is split across the 2 wards and some shift work across the 7 days is required.

You will be supported and work collaboratively with the ward managers on wards 3 and 4, and work closely with the band 6 OT covering the female wards. We offer further support through the monthly OT meetings, reflective forums and management supervision.
