Occupational Therapist - Enhanced Intermediate Care

Betty’s got her independence back. Our teams get the autonomy to do what’s right.  

We’re proud of our community; the care we give and the services we provide. This is why we give our people the time, support and resources they need to do their job well. You’ll have a manageable caseload. We want to hear your ideas. If you think something needs to change, we want to know about it. This is an opportunity to take ownership and to change lives for the better. 

Together, we make big things happen (the Lexicon is just one example). But we’re also focused on the smaller things that make all the difference. And that’s as true for our employees as it is for our residents. We have a car park with plenty of spaces (you won’t need to worry about where you’re going to park – which means more time to focus on your work). We have strong teams and excellent manager relationships. Expert advice is there whenever you need it. Put simply, a career with us means having everything you need to build on your skills. To build better relationships. To build even better communities. This is your chance to make a lasting impact. 

Because we’re Bracknell Forest

  • Provide reablement services within a multi-disciplinary team – OTs, Physios nurses and psychology support 
  • Work with people, including advocates and carers, to develop person-centred SMART Goals and support plans designed to meet needs in ways that maximises independence, choice and control that are Care Act compliant and cost effective
  • Take responsibility for own learning, including mandatory and suggested training, and the training of OT students

We are looking for Occupational Therapists who want to work in a dynamic and team orientated environment. Above all, you’ll empower service users; facilitating their recovery and helping them overcome the barriers that prevent them from doing the activities that matter to them.
