Are you a recently graduated Occupational Therapist looking to embark on a rewarding career where you are supported in everything you do? If so, join The Spinney and give your career the best start.
You will work 37.5 hours a week alongside the multidisciplinary team at The Spinney, a service, which offers a range of care settings for men with personality disorder and/or mental illness. The purpose-built medium, low secure and rehabilitation wards, as well as a psychiatric intensive care unit (PICU) are all set within an 11-acre site with extensive woodland and landscaped areas.
Give your career the best start by working alongside Registered Occupational Therapists, where you will provide therapeutic interventions alongside clinical programmes to support service users build a brighter future.
As an Occupational Therapist, you will manage a dedicated caseload, which will see you conduct occupational therapy assessments, treatments and evaluations for therapeutic interventions, where you will identify individuals mental and physical obstacles to their daily life skills.
Under supervision, you will be responsible for planning and facilitating individual and group sessions that promote patient-centred skills, confidence and recovery. This may be linked to daily living activities, such as self-care, personal interests, cooking and basic educational needs and form part of their initial and ongoing assessment.
A range of training opportunities are available that can see your career grow and you achieve your career aspirations.
