Along with clinical work the post holder will also supervise more junior members of the team and OT students on placements and assist with and lead on service developments. Regular supervision and support will be provided.

We are a dynamic, friendly and supportive team of 15 OTs, 2 OT Technical Instructors and 3 Administrators who have a wide range of skills and expertise. The service has a good reputation and we work closely with colleagues across children’s services in Health, Education, Social Services and the voluntary sector.
