Boy in CIMT at CPotential

Working as part of a unique and supportive integrated multidisciplinary team (MDT), you will complete joint assessments and plan collaborative treatment and reviews for children, and their families.

You’ll be a confident, clear, and empathetic communicator who builds effective relationships, and will provide a high standard of advice, assessment, development, training, and implementation of intervention programmes.

You will be HCPC registered and an RCOT member, with previous experience of working with children with a variety of needs including cerebral palsy, developmental delay, genetic disorders, sensory processing difficulties.

Willingness to be flexible in your service delivery approach is required, and able to travel and work in a variety of outreach settings such as family homes, special and mainstream schools, and clinics as and when needed.

Actively participating in clinical and peer supervision, you will also supervise OT and Therapy Assistants as and when required.

Working for CPotential, in the words of Senior Occupational Therapist, Paula Godfrey

One of the things that I really enjoy about working here is that CPotential still has a family feel to work in and as an organisation it has been open to new ideas and ways of working. It’s a place that doesn’t stand still and you feel that you have a chance to be creative at work.  It’s understood here that working well as a team is how to support our families best and its always been really important to me as a clinician to work as part of a friendly and supportive team.  At CPotential we work closely together and look out for each other, there are a lot of laughs in amongst the hard work. Some places say that they do this but at CPotential we live it! There is a real momentum to share and develop ideas and learn off each other to improve what we do.  

This role requires an Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check.
