Full Time
We recently placed an Occupational Therapist called Sarah into something different. Sarah wanted to work out in the community using her skills to help people.  She also wanted  to feel valued, and in this role, she is the key person who will assess and put together action plans to help people with health conditions back to work.  The job seeker works to her advice, as do a team of employment support specialists.  Sarah is pretty important.

You could be the additional person our client is looking for to join Sarah and the team.  They are a  large social enterprise who want to improve people’s lives.  They are currently contracted to deliver a 5 year pilot across London to help people who are long term unemployed with a health condition into employment.  Its cutting edge, in that science, meets psychology, meets coaching.  It provides help to job seekers to ensure they get wrap around support to help them into work.

Day to day, she delivers assessments, and provides on-going support and advice to the team on customers.  Reports will cover things like the functional impact of particular health conditions.  And how they can utilise a positive strength based approach to promote recovery through work and confidence building.  Sarah also facilitates group and one to one workshops on condition management, and brief person centred therapeutic interventions

 If you are currently an occupational therapist, with experience of mental and physical health conditions, and this sounds of interest feel free to get in touch.  You need to be fully qualified to degree level and registered (HCPC).  The company offer their people a variety of lifestyle and welfare benefits, including a health cash plan, employee assistance programme, 3% match pension, life insurance, and amazing opportunities for professional development.

 You can contact James for an informal chat, or if you have applied, and have not heard back, drop us an email using our Hello address (email and phone contact details on the Red 5 Solutions website).
