Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust positively encourages applications from all areas of the community, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation or religious beliefs. We are committed to ensuring people who work for the community trust have a good working life - and a good work life/home life balance.

We are looking for a Band 6 Occupational Therapist with post qualification NHS experience to join our Multidisciplinary team to work on the wards at Ludlow & Bishops Castle Community Hospitals.

Ludlow Community Hospital has 24 beds and Bishops Castle Community Hospital has 16 beds both serving the South Shropshire Area.

You will be working as part of the multidisciplinary team with a varied and complex caseload, involved in assessment, treatment, home assessment visits, equipment provision/fitting and discharge planning.

It is an excellent opportunity to join a highly skilled team. The post is suitable for an experienced Band 6 or Band 5 Occupational Therapist, demonstrating a good range of rotational experience in inpatient settings.

You will need to be qualified to degree level in Occupational Therapy or equivalent and be state registered with the Health Professions Council (HPC).

You must be able to meet the travel requirements of the post.

The Trust supports a no smoking policy.

Childcare voucher schemes and subsidised childcare support is available to parents.

Staff who are new to the NHS will normally start on the bottom increment of the payscale advertised.

Disclosure and Barring Service Check

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly known as CRB) to check for any previous criminal convictions.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test.
