The Occupational Therapy Department at National Star is looking to recruit a Junior Occupational Therapist into its expanding team. We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic individual who has some understanding of complex disability and has the aptitude to learn and develop new skills. We have the opportunity to work with young adults over a period of three years who have complex physical and learning disabilities. We use a range of assessments and provide bespoke interventions to help support the development of skills within an educational and residential environment. You will be joining a team of 9 occupational therapists who work closely with the multi disciplinary team of therpaists, tutors and residential teams across the organisation.
At National Star, we know the value of a diverse workforce, and welcome applications from all areas of the community. This includes those with disabilities, and we are a proud Disability Confident employer and are committed to providing equal opportunities. In 2018 National Star received an 'Outstanding' from Ofsted.
Please note that all applicants will be expected to undertake a DBS Disclosure, and undergo the necessary employer checks. The level of disclosure to be applied for will be dependent on your job role and will be discussed with you during the recruitment process but is usually an enhanced level. Where appropriate, the adult and child barred lists will be checked and we will not employ anyone who appears on either of those registers.
We prefer people to submit an online application as this helps support the charity in saving money. If you have a disability and need to apply using an alternative format, or if you have any technical problems with our recruitment system, please call the HR Team on 01242 527631 or email email@example.com.
All future correspondence with you will be via email (application acknowledgement, invitation to interview etc). Please check your email regularly.
