It's the kind of place where nothing's too much trouble. Where our services seamless. Where you'll feel empowered, listened to, valued and where we'll support you to bring your best self to work every day. And that's just the beginning.

Since 2006, we've delivered innovative and refreshing health and social care services to millions of people by developing our own unique approach where our patients are at the centre of everything we do. And right now, we're looking for a temporary part time (0.6wte) Occupational Therapist for 6 months maternity cover, to join our Community Neuro and Stroke Early Supported Discharge Service based at St Martins Hospital in Bath, to help us continue to change things for the better.

Working closely with our Speech and Language Therapists, Physiotherapists, Nurses, Rehabilitation Assistants and Psychologist, you will undertake skilled and specialist assessment of service users to formulate individualised management and treatment plans using evidence based clinical reasoning skills and utilising a wide range of treatment skills and options. You will

* Assess for and provide specialist equipment
* Encourage independence and enable service users and their carers to manage their condition.
* Provide specialist support and advice to other services
* Deliver skilled manual handling for assessment and treatment of patients

You will care for patients and their families in the way that you believe is best, delivering our high service standards, sharing best practice, and actively improving the way we work. This is an opportunity to put your Occupational Therapy degree to great use. You will have HCPC registration, previous post qualification experience of working with stroke/neurological conditions and depth of knowledge of principles and practices of Occupational Therapy applied to neurological rehabilitation. You will also have strong communication and organisation skills, and a flexible approach will ensure you deliver positive experiences to patients at every stage of their healthcare journey.

But what's in it for you? Well, we offer a competitive salary and NHS pension, lots of training and development, great perks including being part of the Virgin Tribe giving access to exclusive offers as well as discounts on Virgin products and services including 40% off Virgin Trains!
