Job Description

Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership

Occupational Therapist
South East Cluster Team

Salary: £36,312 - £42,717
Hours: 36 per week

We are looking for a permanent experienced Occupational Therapist to join the Cluster team based in the South East of Edinburgh.

Are you an enthusiastic and motivated occupational therapist skilled in assessment and rehabilitation? Do you have a passion for supporting people to live great lives in their communities and find creative solutions to supporting people to live in their own homes and participate in the activities that are important to them? Then we’d love you to join our friendly, supportive locality cluster team.

You will make a vital contribution to how we ensure people are supported within their home environment to live their best lives.

You will work closely with other Occupational Therapy colleagues in the team, community care assistants and social workers, as well as our other community colleagues such as GPs, district nurses care providers and voluntary sector. We offer a supportive work environment to help you grow and develop at any stage of your Occupational Therapy career.

Please see the job description and person specification for more details.

This post is regulated work with children and/or protected adults under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. The preferred candidate will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG Scheme update check.  Where an individual has spent a continuous period of 3 months or more out with the UK in the last 5 years, an Overseas Criminal Record Check will be required. You will be required to provide this check. An unconditional offer of employment and commencement in the post will be subject to the outcome of both these pre-employment checks being deemed satisfactory.

We're committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.

As part of our goal to improve our organisational culture and create a great place to work together for the people of Edinburgh, we want to make sure that we’re bringing the best people into our roles, not just in their skills and experience but also in their approach to work.

To help achieve this, we’re changing the way we interview and assess candidates by moving from a competency-based interview approach to a behavioural and technical (skills for the job) based approach. This new way of interviewing will allow us to assess how you think and how you would bring Our Behaviours of Respect, Integrity and Flexibility into your ways of working.

You can find out more on Our Behaviours web page Our Behaviours – The City of Edinburgh Council

Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range.
