The Role


Are you an experienced Occupational Therapist, with a passion for working with people who are experiencing acute mental illness, within an inpatient setting? Would you like to be part of an innovative model of care, which places therapy at it’s core? In our services we try to promote person centred care by focusing on recovery, through the provision of multidisciplinary team working to increase psychological approaches and therapeutic activity.

Occupational Therapists are recognised as essential, core members of the multi-disciplinary team and are in the forefront of developing recovery and therapeutic interventions. We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and motivated Occupational Therapist, who is looking to positively contribute to this innovative approach to the therapeutic engagement of service users. You will be responsible for providing OT assessments, treatment and advice and will have the opportunity to work within a dynamic and creative environment. You will work closely with the Occupational Therapy Clinical Lead and Ward Manager to implement and provide a therapeutic programme that supports the use of activity to aid recovery and enables timely and sustained discharge.

This position would suit an Occupational Therapist who is looking to consolidate skills acquired from working in the mental health field. You will need to be a dynamic clinician with good team working skills and have the ability to integrate occupational therapy skills with those of other professions in order to coordinate and deliver effective care for the service user. You will draw on a sound clinical background in mental health, with experience of managing complex caseloads and coordinating workloads. You will predominantly be required to work between 8.00 – 16.00 Monday – Friday to reflect clinical need. However some flexibility may be required, to support the 7 day programme.

KMPT can offer you both professional and clinical development opportunities, in addition to regular supervision, appraisals and personal development planning. We also support continual development through our professional/clinical forums and internal networks and have good links with the local universities.
