We are looking to recruit a Senior Occupational Therapist to join our BEE U Core mental health team, to deliver generic mental health and occupational therapy assessments and interventions, in accordance with individualised care plans, to an identified group of young people experiencing mental health related difficulties.

The successful applicant will be able to function autonomously within a multidisciplinary team. There will be an expectation that the post holder will work flexibly, demonstrate effective clinical reasoning, and possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills. The post will involve taking responsibility for your own caseload of young people to deliver person centred care, supporting them to achieve individualised goals. There will be balance between generic and profession specific work. The environment could be fast paced and challenging, however, highly rewarding. You will work directly with children and young people with mental health needs but also their families and additional support networks including schools, social care, voluntary and partnership agencies to ensure a holistic approach to facilitate positive outcomes of care in relation to young people’s mental health needs.

We pride ourselves on being a supportive team, offering brilliant training opportunities for our staff and our unwavering dedication to improving the mental health of children and young people across the local area

The successful applicant will join our existing Multi-Disciplinary team of professionals, headed by the Operational Lead and Clinical Lead. You will have the opportunity to work alongside an extensive range of individuals with varying professional backgrounds. This includes psychiartists, psychologists, nurses, occupational therapists and family and systemic practitioners.

The BeeU service is a partnership between Midland Partnership Foundation Trust, The Children’s Society, Kooth and Healios working together in the interests of children and young people in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.

There will be scope for creativity in this team, to develop evidence based interventions, to think systemically and work collaboratively with children, young people and families, informed by the local Transformation Plan, Future in Mind and the THRIVE framework. It really is time to think differently and creatively about how we can help more children and young people with their emotional wellbeing and mental health. We pride ourselves on being a caring and compassionate team and will provide supervision opportunities and support when dealing with challenging cases. Supervision and appraisals will be provided by the operational and occupational therapy team lead and we are keen to support our clinicians with their own personal and professional development.

If you are an appropriately qualified and experienced occupational therapist, with a genuine passion and enjoyment for working as a team, in addition to helping children, young people and their families, then please do get in touch. Experience of working well in teams is essential however, there will also be the expectation of working autonomously too.

if you would like an informal discussion regarding this role please do not hesitate to contact Nicola Royce (Operational Lead) or Caron Johnson (Occupational Therapist Lead) - 0300 124 0093.
