The Oakleaf Group is a leading provider of specialist brain injury rehabilitation services for male and female adults. The Oakleaf Group currently operates across 5 sites in Suffolk, Northamptonshire West Sussex, including assessment and active rehabilitation, community rehabilitation houses and long stay/maintenance placements. We have a comprehensive team of clinical and therapy staff ensuring the rehabilitation is individualised and appropriate to the needs of each resident.

The Role

We have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic Occupational Therapist to join our Multi-professional Team. You would be part of a newly formed dynamic and supportive team that includes Physiotherapy, Psychology and Nursing.

The successful applicant should have a desire to develop their knowledge and skills in the field of brain injury rehabilitation. The role would ideally suit an Occupational Therapist, who has completed a rotational post, or someone who is seeking to specialise in neuro rehabilitation and would like to develop their clinical skills further in this specialist field. HCPC registration is essential. Experience of working with people with neurological conditions is essential. Previous experience of specific brain injury rehabilitation is desirable.

The post will involve working as part of the Occupational Therapist service covering the rehabilitation services based at the All Hallows, Ditchingham, Suffolk.

The post holder will be expected to manage a caseload of clients with brain injury and in conjunction with other members of the multi professional Therapy Team, form comprehensive assessment of need and develop goal focused Occupational Therapy rehabilitation intervention plans. The post holder will be expected to provide direct Occupational Therapy intervention, as well as advise on issues related to Occupational Therapy, such as activities of daily living, manual handling, equipment and meaningful activity.

Expectations

The Oakleaf Group expect all staff to participate in continual professional development. Regular supervision is provided and in-service and external training are available. Opportunities for the development of leadership skills are also available, such as the mentoring of assistant staff.

This is a unique opportunity for an experienced Occupational Therapy to develop their skills within a conscientious, hard working and supportive team, allowing creativity within their work. The role requires the hours of Monday to Friday 8.30am to 4.30pm; however flexibility is essential in order to meet the needs of the service and therefore occasional evening work maybe required. Weekend and Bank holiday working is not required.

Any offer of employment will be subject to a satisfactory checking report from the Disclosure & Barring Service.
