We are immensely proud of our staff and their passion, professionalism and dedication to change people's lives. If you share that passion, and if you too want to make a difference, then come and join us. In return you will get to work with a great team, with superb training and development opportunities, and excellent staff benefits.
We provide a large number of mental and physical health services. Poor physical and mental health are linked and our ambition is for people to have their physical and mental health problems identified, assessed and treated at the same time.
The work of our staff is very wide-ranging. Some of the things we do include:
  • helping children and young people with mental health issues
  • supporting new mums suffering post-natal depression
  • assessing people detained under the Mental Health Act
  • helping people get active, eat well and take care of their own wellbeing
  • treating people who have dementia or experience problems thinking and remembering
  • helping people remain independent in the community
  • running high secure services at Broadmoor Hospital.
We are a teaching Trust and all staff receive support throughout their career to grow and develop. Our staff also have access to some of the leading research programmes in mental health and, whatever your role, there are opportunities to develop skills and clinical practice by being part of ground-breaking work.
We take care of our staff with a series of employee benefits, including flexible working, car lease schemes and exclusive discounts on a wide range of products and services, from washing machines to holidays. We also offer a generous relocation package.

This is an exciting opportunity to work within a well-established, staffed and resourced and respected Occupational Therapy service with patients with a primary diagnosis of personality disorder or mental illness.
The post will be based within the high security forensic environment and offers a great development opportunity for an experienced Occupational Therapist to develop their skills. The hospital will be moving to a new bespoke hospital which will be the most modern high security forensic hospital in the country focusing on innovative care to a challenging and interesting patient group. We have a strong commitment to multi-professional working within the clinical team, focussing on reducing risk and offending behaviours.

We are looking to recruit a resourceful, motivated Occupational Therapist, experienced in mental health (though not necessarily in forensic) who enjoys new challenges.

We offer a number of opportunities including regular supervision, comprehensive CPD packages and the opportunity to be involved in the development of the service.
All staff members take part in a comprehensive induction and there will be opportunities to develop clinical and specialist skills in this area.
The post is located at Broadmoor Hospital, which is located in a beautiful part of Berkshire, easily accessed via both the M3 & M4 motorways.
We reserve the right to close adverts prior to the closing date stated should we receive a high volume of applications. Please ensure you submit your application as soon as possible to ensure it is considered in the selection process.
If you decide to apply for this post but do not hear back from us within two weeks of the closing date, please assume that you not have been short-listed on this occasion.
