Occupational Therapist

Are you inspired to make a real, life-changing difference for young people who need you? Have you got the experience to work as an Occupational Therapist with young people with challenging behaviours?

The role

Our Occupational Therapists lead the development of creative, innovative and effective services for young people, focusing on skills needed for everyday life. Based either at a single site or across our regional services, they deliver the full range of occupational therapy support.

Patience and compassion are essential as they provide expert advice, information and training for our own teams and other agencies, especially in relation to autism and associated conditions. They’re always innovating, sharing their knowledge and building good, evidence-based practice across our organisation.

This support and knowledge-sharing runs both ways, as they also benefit from the huge reserves of knowledge and expertise that all our teams offer – an amazing benefit of being part of the Outcomes First Group family.

What makes a great Occupational Therapist?

Our Occupational Therapists put young people’s wellbeing first. That’s at the core of everything they do, so compassion and an ability to build a rapport are essential, along with an awareness of up-to-date legislation and best practice.

We look for people who are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and who work well in a team, but who are self-motivated and driven to help others – including young people and colleagues alike. Kindness and a passion for delivering exceptional care are a must, along with a willingness to share knowledge for the benefit of our entire team.
