Job Description

Ready for the recognition and rewards you deserve?

We don't just talk about putting employees first. We know that Priory wouldn't exist without their combined energy, expertise and effort. So we invest heavily in training, provide first-class support, promote collaborative teamwork and give everyone on our team the opportunities and resources to achieve their full potential.

The Priory Hospital Glasgow is Scotland's leading independent Acute Psychiatric Hospital. We have a range of services including General Adult Psychiatry, Addictions and Eating Disorders.

We are seeking an Occupational Therapist to work within our inpatient Eating Disorder Unit at the Priory Glasgow Hospital. Suitable candidates will have a degree in Occupational Therapy (MSc pre-registration or BSc) and registration with HCPC. The role involves applying OT interventions 1-to-1 with patients and also leading group work, and experience of both is required.

Experience is required of undertaking formulation, risk assessment and positive risk management, and working with people with mental health difficulties. Applicants with experience of eating disorders are welcomed, but this is not essential.

The role demands excellent written and verbal communication skills, presentation skills, and the ability to demonstrate and apply understanding of policies and procedures. Personal attributes needed include:

- Demonstrate ability to resolve conflict

- Reliable

- Enthusiastic

- Punctual

- Self-motivated

- Ability to work on own initiative

- Engaging, open and honest

- Personal resilience

This role offers the opportunity for the right candidate to work with a supportive, cohesive team of professionals. If you would like more information or an informal chat prior to applying, please contact either Emma Fowler-Stewart, Psychologist or Rowan Steele, Occupational Therapist on Apply.

The successful candidates will be required to apply for PVG Scheme Membership from Disclosure Scotland. Further information can be obtained from Apply
