We are looking to recruit 7 Occupational Therapists to be part of our growing access and prevention service, playing a key role in helping to build and develop a preventative approach to adult social care in Sheffield. You will be based in Adaptations Health and Housing, alongside our current Occupational Therapy Teams. This new team will be working specifically with people who have long term care and support needs and are being supported by the Locality teams within adult social care. As such, though you will be part of the wider Occupational therapy service within the Council, you will be expected to work collaboratively and in partnership with the locality teams on a regular basis.
Ideally, candidates will have experience of both Occupational Therapy and adult social care more broadly. They will be committed to person centred social care practice with adults. A working knowledge of the care would also be beneficial. Relevant IT skills will be required but additional training will be provided for specific systems.
Evidence of an Occupational Therapy qualification and evidence of HCPC registration will be required before appointment to the post.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of children and vulnerable adults and expect all staff to share this commitment. All successful candidates will be required to complete an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Check.
We are committed to fairness and social justice and welcome applications from everyone. We value our diverse workforce and aim to work together to make the most of our differences. Under the Disability Confident Scheme, disabled applicants, who meet the essential criteria of this job, are guaranteed an interview.
