Be Bold. Be Birmingham. Be your best in Adult Social Care.

Grow your experience exploring new ways to enable the independence of citizens who require OT input. Enhance their quality of life, and your career too.

About the role

Using your understanding of the aspirations of the people who use our services and their carers, your focus will be on making assessments enabling citizens to determine how to maintain their lifestyles.

Arranging the appropriate service provision, your role will include working with other agencies to reduce barriers to social inclusion and achieve solutions that meet individual citizens’ needs. Collaborating with citizens, carers and colleagues, you can play an active role in helping to further develop our services.

About us 

Birmingham is a vibrant, courageous, resilient city, where great things are happening. And that goes far beyond hosting the 2022 Commonwealth Games. It’s about the renewed investment, ongoing regeneration and the fierce ambition we have for the future of our brilliant city and citizens. 

We’re not afraid to say we want to be the best in adult social care – because that means better outcomes for the individuals we’re all here for. We make sure our teams have what they need to be at their best, too. The diversity of our communities and scale of our service means a greater variety of social care challenges and more scope for innovation. Whether you’re in one of our 10 teams piloting new systems or bringing your own bold ideas to approach the way we work, you can find lots of ways to keep learning and growing.

About you

You should be eligible to be registered as an OT with HCPC.

We’d like you to bring:

  • Experience of working with elderly or disabled citizens, either in a professional or voluntary capacity.
  • Understanding of assessment processes and outcomes.
  • Understanding of equal opportunity and diversity issues.
  • Commitment to your continuing professional development, and willingness to progress to a Senior Occupational Therapist role.

What we offer in return

We’re committed to creating an environment that promotes diversity and inclusivity, healthy lifestyle choices, wellbeing and balance. We’ll empower you to be the best you can be, with coaching, mentoring and training programmes that meet your professional and personal development needs at every stage of your career with us.  

We’re also proud to offer:

  • Family friendly policies.
  • A range of benefits, including membership of the West Midlands Pension Fund, discounted gym membership and a confidential employee assistance programme.
  • 29 days’ annual leave increasing with length of service, plus the option to purchase additional days.
  • Golden Hello payment - £1,000, (upon external appointment)
  • Recruitment & Retention Payment - £5,000 per annum (paid monthly over a 12month period, pro rota for part time staff)
