9 Month Fixed Term Contract (Maternity Cover): Part time / Full Time Hours Available
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dynamic Occupational Therapist to join our growing interdisciplinary national Brain Injury Community Service (BICS). We provide specialist goal-orientated neurorehabilitation delivered in the child’s environment, across the UK, working with the child, their family and network, focusing on the needs which result from an acquired brain injury (ABI).
Your week will be varied as you work with the team to deliver a pathway of support including clinical screening, brain injury education and onward referral through to interdisciplinary neurorehabilitation skills packages to children and young people with social, emotional, cognitive, communicative and behavioural needs arising from ABI. You will be supported by highly specialist therapy and psychology colleagues from the team, as well as a small team of administrators. You will be based at the main BICS hub in Tadworth and travel to homes and schools on a regular basis as the caseload requires. You will be a car driver and willing to travel for work.
You will have experience of working in healthcare and/or school settings as part of a multi-professional team, and experience working with families and carers. The successful candidate will have an understanding of childhood development, knowledge of neuroanatomy and an interest in the wide ranging sequelae of childhood ABI.
The Children’s Trust is the UK’s leading charity for children with acquired brain injury, providing expert rehabilitation, education, therapy and care at our national specialist centre in Tadworth, and to children and their families across the UK, via our Brain Injury Community Service.
