About the Role

Working to support adults and their families who have complex social needs and are more vulnerable as a result of disability, exclusion, or diminished capacity, you'll maximise their potential to live independently.

With case work focusing on the most complex and challenging adult cases, you'll ensure that adults and their families are safeguarded. You'll share ideas and best practice, providing specialist advice as part of a multi-disciplinary team sharing your knowledge as an Occupational Therapist.

We currently have several opportunities for Occupational Therapists, within our South Essex area.

Our teams in South Essex are primarily based out of our offices in Basildon. South Essex borders the unitary authority of Southend / Thurrock and also offers the opportunity to work with health partners within the area. In addition, the area also has good links to London.

With a mix of Urban and some rural/ semi-rural locations, the variety and scope of the work you will be able to get involved in is huge.

Teams currently recruiting:

Please still apply if you're looking for something outside of the above Teams and we can arrange a call to discuss relevant opportunities.
