KMPT is creating an environment for equal opportunities for all, where we can ALL
It's an exciting time to join us: KMPT has been rated Outstanding for Caring and Good overall in our most recent CQC inspection in January 2017!
An opportunity has arisen for a full time Band 6 Occupational Therapist (OT) to join the Maidstone Community Mental Health Team. We need someone with some previous community Band 6 experience to lead our newly forming OT team in these changing times.
You will be involved in carrying out occupationally focused assessments and planning and delivering interventions, with individuals, their carers and groups, to facilitate personal recovery, restoration of well being and timely discharge. You will have an OT caseload some of which you will care co-ordinating.
You will need to be clinically confident and competent in working with individuals in community settings and be able to work effectively as an OT and as part of the multidisciplinary team. You should have a collaborative and enthusiastic style, as well as a passion and commitment to develop and promote recovery orientated practice.
This is an interesting time to join when services are being redesigned, so foresight and the desire to make a difference are essential. This post requires that you are a good communicator, and are able to adopt a flexible, adaptable and proactive approach to your work.
You will benefit from encouragement to continue to develop your own specialist skills, knowledge and competence through participation, reflection, supervision and training and your development will be guided using appraisal and the Knowledge and Skills Framework.
