An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 6 Specialist Occupational Therapist to join an established Occupational Therapy Team based at Monkwearmouth Hospital. The post holder will be part of a newly established Occupational Therapy Service working into our specialist learning disability in-patient facility in Hebburn. We have recently recruited a Band 5 Occupational Therapist and a Band 4 Occupational Therapy Assistant Practitioner to support the provision of assessments and interventions.

Main duties of the job

The post holder will be operationally managed by an experienced Band 7 Occupational Therapy Lead, receiving regular clinical and professional supervision and will be actively encouraged to participate in Trust wide clinical support forums.

We are looking for a Band 6 Specialist Practitioner, with post registration experience, who preferably has clinical experience and an active interest in working with people with learning disabilities and autism.
