Continue your Occupational Therapy journey by becoming the Lead Occupational Therapist for Adult Acute In Patient Care.

A great opportunity to combine leadership and clinical skills, being part of a multidisciplinary team in this specialist area of mental health.
The post holder will work across the Adult In Patient Service – leading the occupational therapy services provided across the county.

The role of the Occupational Therapist is highly valued by the service, and plays a vital part in assessment and treatment of patients experiencing acute mental health, preparing and supporting discharge from hospital.
The post holder will lead the dedicated Therapy Team which consists of Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapy Assistants, Physiotherapist, Physiotherapy Assistant and Activity Co-ordinators.

The Trust is a great place to work as an Occupational Therapist. You will have access to clinical and professional supervision on a both 1: 1 and group basis. Mentoring / coaching is also available from the Associate Director of Allied Health Professions or Consultant Occupational Therapist. We also offer a range of CPD opportunities to enable you to further develop your skills in relation to your role and profession.

We offer a comprehensive induction programme, and a good network of Allied Health Professionals working across the Trust and county. We are open to discussing flexible working patterns which enable you to have a positive work / life balance.

We are leading the way with mental health transformation projects. Multi-million-pound schemes to transform patient environments and radically redesign community services are currently underway, as part of our commitment to reshaping the future of mental healthcare.

We believe the key to high quality patient care is a contented workforce. This is reflected in the Care Quality Commission rating us as ‘outstanding’ for well led and ‘good’ overall, and 75% of our staff recommending us as a place to work.

We offer options for flexible working and provide development pathways and opportunities. We have a proud partnership with the University of Lincoln and the Lincoln Medical School, which has expanded our academic offerings to nurture talent across the Trust.

We are committed to ensuring our workforce is diverse at all levels. We are currently under-represented particularly at senior leadership level, so we welcome applications from women, people with disabilities, people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds, and those from the LGBT communities.

We support and celebrate diversity. We have active staff network groups for Black Asian Minority Ethnics (BAME), Lesbian Gay Bi-Sexual Transgender (LGBT+), staff with Mental and Physical Lived Experience (MAPLE) and our dedicated groups for men and women. We are a Silver Standard Employer with ENEI, were in the top 100 organisations in the county within the Stonewall Index (in 2019), and have been a finalist for the Health Service Journal (HSJ) Mental Health Trust of the Year Award two years in a row.

We offer 24-hour services within our Inpatient, Crisis and SPA teams; if you are successfully appointed to posts in these areas or others that might have specified, you will be required to work unsociable hours and shift patterns.
