Job Description

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a suitably qualified and experienced Occupational Therapist, to join a vibrant integrated health and social care Community Mental Health Team for Adults.
We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic practitioner to join our team.
The successful candidate will be required primarily to fulfil the role of an Occupational Therapist within the Central West CMHT team, based at the Kath Locke Centre in Hulme, Manchester.
You will be supported to maintain an occupational therapy focus in your work whilst also managing a reduced caseload of clients with complex mental health needs and associated social care issues, for which risk assessment and risk management are essential requirements.
As well as undertaking Occupational therapy assessments and specific work associated with the role of an Occupational Therapist. The successful candidate will be expected to take part in the team duty system.
The service is currently undergoing changes and will be working 7 days a week in the near future.
All of our service developments align to the best available evidence and GMMH is committed to delivering Royal College of Psychiatrists accredited services over the coming months. As the successful candidate, a wide range of opportunities to enhance and develop your clinical skills will be open to you.
Research and Innovation are championed in our services. We have a number of Trust-wide R&I, professional and divisional forums were service development ideas are derived from our front-line teams. Staff are actively encouraged to participate in such opportunities.
The CQC has recognised GMMH services to be well-led and we have been rated as Excellent in this area. Understanding and responding to individual development needs and priorities are critical aspects of how we lead and support our teams to deliver the highest quality and most effective care. We therefore recognise that a commitment to supporting our staff to develop themselves is important and essential. As such, you will receive an individualised review of your learning and development needs, as well as focused support at a service and trust level around how to achieve your goals. Additionally, to support meeting learning and development needs, we have close links with local academic institutions and have a wealth of expertise within GMMH that supports delivery of in-house training and education programmes.
