We are recruiting an Occupational Therapist, to join our multidisciplinary team (MDT) on a part time basis. We see the requirements of the role as being similar to that seen in the NHS at a band 6 or 7 level and the successful candidate will join an established MDT of OTs, Speech and Language Therapists and Psychotherapists. The role includes provision of supervision to OT and OT Assistant colleagues. You will work closely with the OT team, overseen by the MDT Lead Therapist. The post holder will conduct assessments, and provide and oversee tailored interventions to our students who are aged seven to 19.
The successful candidate will only be required to work 40 weeks per year.
The post holder will also work closely with education colleagues and the SLT to provide appropriate OT input and training, as well as contribute to our holistic approach to mental and physical wellbeing within the school.
The successful candidate will work with our neurodivergent young people who present with sensory, mental health and special educational needs associated with their diagnosis of autism. Many of our students have additional diagnoses of ADHD, dyslexia and DCD. A flexible approach, a sense of humour, reliability, punctuality, stamina, resilience and the ability to work under pressure are essential.
We can offer you the benefits of working to a school calendar with a 40 week year and an excellent professional development package. We are part of the Cavendish Education Group, a unique group of educational independent day and boarding schools. We work closely with the other schools in our group, have extensive community links and believe in ‘thinking differently’ and being as creative as possible in our approach.
As a school, we are committed to supporting every staff member’s personal and professional development. We can offer specialist training and support as required, tailored towards the candidate’s interests.
