The Role

Wandsworth and Richmond Councils’ Occupational Health team  

As a Senior Occupational Health Practitioner, you will support the Occupational Health Manager in delivering a full range of high quality, responsive and proactive occupational health and well-being services.

The post will mainly focus on case work so a wide experience of working with a variety of clients is essential, to be able to offer professional support and advice in relation to an individual’s mental and physical needs, with adaptations if necessary to allow them to work effectively.

There will also be an opportunity for the post-holder to support the development work of the wider team as we welcome new initiatives to allow us to expand on the programme of support for the health and wellbeing of our clients working for the Joint Council and schools in the Borough of Wandsworth.

We recognise the importance of a good balance between work and home life so we do everything we can to accommodate flexible working including, working from home, compressed or part-time hours, term time only and other arrangements. Please just let us know in your application or at any stage throughout the process (and beyond) if these are options you’d like to explore. We also offer a generous holiday allowance of 39 paid days (pro rata) including bank holidays and a wide range of learning and development opportunities.

In addition, we offer a comprehensive range of staff benefits such as membership of the Local Government pension scheme, childcare vouchers, new technology scheme, interest-free loans on annual travel cards, discounts with many leisure activities, restaurants, shops and other establishments.
