We are looking to recruit a Community Therapy Assistant to join our Children and Young Person's Therapy Service. Buckinghamshire has a brand new integrated therapy team which forms part of a wider children and young people's service including occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, health visitors and school nurses. The post will be based in Aylesbury with an expectation to work within a countywide service.

This integrated service will give you the opportunity to develop your skills working therapeutically with children and young people in Buckinghamshire. Your predominant role will be working within early years settings and schools, with some support to families within their own homes. Under the supervision of qualified therapists, you will be working directly with children and young people to achieve their goals and develop their functional skills.

Initially the role will focus on supporting occupational therapists, but as the service develops new clinical pathways there will be increased opportunities to support other therapy specialties. We have a well-developed competency based training package and clinical supervision to support staff development.

Car driver essential. Previous experience working with children and young people preferable.
