As part of a development within the team we have created a new full-time post to address the way in which we offer our Community Occupational Therapy Service.  The successful postholder will be part of an established, busy team which provides an equipment and adaptations service to the people of Bolsover and has recently begun to work closely with our colleagues in Short Term service provision too.  The team is therefore evolving to address the requirement to support more people to continue to live as independently as possible for as long as possible.

The successful candidate will be skilled in identifying people's strengths and designing ways in which to support them should they need some help.  They should be aware of how legislation supports the role of a Community Occupational Therapist.  They should also be able to demonstrate the role of an OT in supporting the wider social care team to work in a way that enhances independence.  Excellent communication and collaboration skills are essential, as is the ability to use a range of IT applications.  

As a Department we adopt a hybrid approach to working with a flexible working scheme which supports working from home alongside some time based in an office. Regular supervision and a variety of training courses are available to all staff.  Caseloads would be commensurate to the grade at which the successful candidate is appointed.

Provisional Interview Date: Week commencing 12 September 2022 

Due to this post having access to children and/or vulnerable adults, the successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check. The possession of a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are judged individually according to the nature of the role and information provided.
