Bolton NHS Foundation Trust provide services across the north west side of the Greater Manchester area ranging from hospital services in Bolton to community services across Bolton and Salford. We are a progressive, expanding organisation with great ambition around improving quality, integrating pathways and delivering high levels of productivity.
The Family Division aims to deliver the highest standards of care for maternity, sexual health, gynaecology and a range of acute and community children's services. The Division is a Centre of Excellence for Women's and Children's services and has a credible and enviable reputation. We deliver over 6,000 babies and carry around 1500 gynaecological procedures each year, making us a specialist provider of health services for women, babies and their families in the North West Sector of Manchester and beyond
An opportunity has arisen for a motivated and enthusiastic Paediatric Occupational Therapist to join our dynamic and expanding team, to cover a 6 month secondment. We are a community based multidisciplinary service working with children through the ages of 0-19 years with a range of conditions. You will be working within specialist areas such as adaptations and equipment, mainstream and special school settings.
As a team player, you will have excellent communication skills, a broad experience of working in paediatric services and proven clinical skills based on best practice.
Working alongside experienced members of a supportive multidisciplinary team and based with the Paediatric Physiotherapy Team, the aim is to provide collaborative care alongside specialist occupational therapy treatment, intervention and advice.
The post offers opportunities to contribute to the development of the occupational therapy service and to develop leadership skills.

The vision of this Trust is to be recognised by the people of Bolton and beyond as an excellent provider of health and care services and a great place to work. We are striving to attract, recruit and retain high calibre skilled staff which reflect our communities. We are an inclusive employer who trains and develops our staff in a positive learning environment. We aim to be consciously inclusive and therefore applications from all sectors of the community are welcomed. We would particularly encourage candidates from a black and minority ethnic (BAME) background and candidates with health conditions or impairments.
From time to time we may need to close a vacancy early when in receipt of a sufficient number of applications. If you are interested in this post and wish to be considered, we strongly advise you to complete and submit your application as soon as possible.
