Location:
Loughborough
Salary:
£31,365 - £37,890

Can you demonstrate our values of Trust, Respect, Integrity and Compassion? Do you share in our ambition to create high quality, compassionate care and wellbeing for all?

Then take a step towards LPT...

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) provides a range of community health, mental health and learning disability services for people of all ages. Delivered through over 100 settings from inpatient wards to out in the community, our 6,500 staff serves over 1m people living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.


Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust is working together with Adult Social Care across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland (LLR) in order to deliver a newly commissioned HomeFirst service offer alongside core Community Therapy.

As a result there has been further significant investment in staffing in order to ensure that services can be delivered by the right therapist in the right place at the right time, and to ensure that the local population across LLR receive timely high quality therapy.

This is therefore a really exciting time to be joining this developing service which brings together an integrated health and social care offer delivered by community-based nursing, therapy and adult social care teams and will allow you to use your therapy skills to:

  • support people to remain in their homes when they are having a health or social care crisis, rather than needing to go into hospital or a care home
  • help people get home from hospital quickly and provide them with rehabilitation and reablement to help restore their health, wellbeing and independence
  • deliver high quality core therapy reablement, rehabilitation and recovery to people within their own homes

We are really proud of this recent feedback for our new service offer:

“I really didn’t want him to go back to hospital, he doesn’t get on well there, he doesn’t know anyone and they don’t really know him. He’s only just come out and he got another infection when he was there. We have got one carer once a day and they couldn’t get him to stand up on Thursday night. By Friday he had been stuck in his chair all night as he was too tired and weak to get up, the Home First Therapists came in and helped. They were so kind; they got him out of the chair and into bed. They made him feel comfortable; they treated him like he was special and not just a number, they made me feel better to”

Do you have the ability to deliver similar high quality compassionate care and think you will be the right person to join our team which is already proven to make a difference?

We are looking for a Band 6 Occupational Therapists to provide an effective and efficient therapy service. This post requires a level of personal responsibility and we are looking for someone highly motivated, resilient and proactive with the ability to prioritise and manage their own allocated caseload and work, use their initiative and the ability to work on their own and as part of a team. You will demonstrate excellent communication and organisational skills and be able to adapt to a changing and pressurised environment.

You will work alongside Physiotherapists and Technical Instructors carrying out comprehensive functional assessments and interventions in order to help our patients live as independently as possible.

In order to meet the requirements for this post you MUST have recent clinical experience working within an adult physical setting.

The therapy teams operate in an integrated way whereby Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists are encouraged to work synergistically in order to provide the best possible outcomes for our patients. You will be encouraged and supported to grow your skillset, and to challenge the way we do things. We are looking for determined and self-motivated individuals who can make a difference to the care of patients from all backgrounds, and to promote therapy services within the trust.

We have a full time post, 37.5 hours available within our Charnwood Nursing and Therapy Hub based at Loughborough Hospital.

CAR DRIVER AND ACCESS TO A CAR IS ESSENTIAL FOR THIS POST.

We recognise the need to develop modern working practices to enable employees to maximise their performance and productivity whilst maintaining a good work life balance. To this aim the Trust has adopted an Agile working methodology as outlined within the Trust Agile working Policy.

The post advertised falls under the Trust’s Agile working methodology, so if successful you will be appointed as an Agile Worker, and will need to work to the Trusts Agile working policy. Talk to the recruiting manager about what this means in practice for you.

For further information about this post please contact Michelle Walker, Operational Lead on 07919590988



We are committed to providing the best care that we can to our patients, and so some of our roles involve a Maths and English assessment. Where this is so, details will be shared with you as part of the recruitment process.

Details of our benefits, pledge and other important information about the application process, and working for us is contained in the documents linked to our advert.

For areas where our teams work to staffing rosters, rosters are set in advance at a team level and you will be joining an established roster. Your rostered shifts will be confirmed to you when arranging your start date. We will consider requests to vary working patterns in line with our flexible working policy.

To make the most of your application, we may consider successful applicants for vacancies for the same post in different locations where this is appropriate and meets our mutual requirements.

For all substantive roles the appointment of every new member of staff (excluding medical and dental staff) to a post is subject to a 6 month probationary period, details of which are in our Probation Policy.

We aim to develop a workforce that reflects our service users. To this end we actively implement equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and seek people who share our commitment. We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups, including members of our black and minority ethnic communities. All jobs will require permission to work in the UK.
