Flexible working

We're committed to flexible and hybrid working and although assessments and interventions take place wherever the person lives, you can choose whether to spend your non-clinical time at home or in the office.

Training and development

To help you progress in your career, you'll get a tailored personal development plan and one-to-one support from a registered Occupational Therapy Lead.

As well as a bespoke programme to keep your practice knowledge up-to-date, you'll get specific training on:

  • moving and handling
  • housing adaptations
  • legislation
  • specialist equipment.

We've also recently appointed an Occupational Therapy Practice Development Officer, who will work closely with the occupational therapy managers to:

  • support excellent clinical practice
  • develop a Preceptorship Programme
  • support the occupational therapy apprenticeships.
