Are you an enthusiastic, motivated and person-centred Occupational Therapist wanting to make a difference to the lives to individuals in Mental Health Crisis? If so, working with us would be the place for you!

This full-time post holder would have an OT specific caseload, providing assessments, intervention and care planning for service users based both at home and also in our respite beds at Hollybank. As the team are currently in the process of developing a 'listening lounge' within Hollybank, the post holder would also play a pivotal role in promoting, providing and developing the OT pathway within this setting.

The Salford Home Based Treatment Team are passionate about staff development and well-being, therefore the post holder will be actively encouraged to engage in CPD and professional development opportunities. Peer support and reflection opportunities are also available to OTs working within the directorate.

If you would like to know more about the team and the role, please contact Amy Lawrence (Team Manager/Senior Occupational Therapist) by email to arrange a 1:1 over Microsoft Teams, the telephone or face to face to discuss further.
