An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and dedicated Band 6 Occupational Therapist to work within Derby City Neighbourhood Teams.

The Occupational Therapist is part of a multi-disciplinary team. The OT approach will consider therapeutic meaningful activities to support individual's recovery and wellbeing in mental health within the community. They will have the OT skills and knowledge to provide specialist functional assessments, and be committed to providing high quality, person centred care.

We are looking for a suitably experienced Occupational Therapist who is motivated and dedicated to work within the current team to contribute to the continued development and promotion of the service. It is anticipated that this will be achieved through MDT work, representing the team within the Trust and an ability to provide a positive role model to other team members. You will carry a clinical caseload of people experiencing a wide range of moderate to severe mental illness, facilitate group work, liaise with community partners to promote a person centred approach to care and support the team with their clinical work.

In return you can expect to be supported in your professional development and develop skills appropriate to the needs of the service and client group.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
