Occupational Therapist

Llandudno

AA/LL/11031/1

Are you an OT that would enjoy moving away from standardised interventions?

Would you enjoy being more involved in exciting outdoor and indoor group and one-to-one activities, alongside a charity that offers solutions and where everything is achievable?

Do you want to make a real difference and change lives?

If you answered yes to any of the above, then we’d love to speak to you…

A specialist service for adults in North Wales who are managing sight loss or impairment is now looking for a positive and dynamic Occupational Therapist to join the team in providing multi-aspect support that goes the extra mile and helps individuals live well beyond sight loss.

From their base in Llandudno, the service offers tailored health and wellbeing support that takes a very different approach, both within the centre and out in the community. The MDT is committed to using solution-focused interventions that maximise motivation to engage in a healthy, diverse lifestyle and gain a greater sense of wellbeing; this includes gaining new hobbies and experiences through outdoor activities, woodworking, arts and crafts, and independent living workshops such as cooking classes.

As an Occupational Therapist with the service, you will:

  • Complete comprehensive, outcome-focused assessments to design and deliver effective interventions based on each individual’s engagement in functional activity.
  • Evaluate existing rehabilitation programmes and make further recommendations to meet the changing needs of each person.
  • Work collaboratively with internal and external professionals to creatively design, implement, and evaluate group and individual therapeutic activities, with the aim of maximising performance and satisfaction with daily living and quality of life.

In doing so, you will be able to use your expertise to think outside the box and deliver flexible rehabilitative interventions that promote and improve functional independence, wellbeing, and social inclusion for people with impaired sight.

Person specification:

You must have a BSc or higher degree in Occupational Therapy.

You must be currently registered with the HCPC as an Occupational Therapist.

You must have some post-qualification experience as an Occupational Therapist, ideally (but not essentially) with older adults, people with sensory (particularly sight) impairments, and/or with ex-military personnel.

Benefits include:

  • Generous annual leave with options to buy additional days
  • Enhanced sick and parental leave pay
  • Life assurance scheme
  • Private pension
  • Professional and personal development opportunities, comprehensive training
  • Reimbursed fees for professional registration/membership
  • Cycle to Work scheme
  • Employee assistance programme with healthcare cash plan and wellbeing support
  • Retail and leisure discount scheme
