The salary range is from £25,295 for Level 1 to £32,878 for Level 3, with a salary increase on the first year anniversary, subject to satisfactory completion of a probation period (pro rata for part time workers).  Please view the Job Description and Person Specifications for specific requirements for each level.
There has never been a better time to join Nottingham City Council.  We have a reputation for inclusivity and innovation and have won a host of Employee Benefits Awards.  We are a leading employer of apprentices and are continually working around the clock to deliver high quality services for Nottingham’s citizens, visitors and investors.
Our aspiration is to make Nottingham a Great City, but to do this we need to be a Great Council, provide Great Services, recruit and develop a Great Workforce.
Join an organisation that gives you extra – we will value your contributions, promote flexible and modern ways of working, will double your monthly pension contributions, offer a very generous 25-32 days holiday package each year (exclusive of public bank holidays and dependent on length of service) and give you the option to purchase up to 28 days additional holiday tax-free!
Job Purpose:
Occupational Therapists at all levels are expected to ensure the delivery of appropriate services to adults and their families / carers, according to their assessed needs. This will include assessing the needs of vulnerable adults and their carers against the Department’s agreed eligibility criteria and in accordance with National Performance Indicators within set timescales, as well as the creation and implementation of culturally appropriate care plans that demonstrate flexibility and innovative use of resources.
Occupational Therapists at Level 1 are also responsible for delivering good outcomes for vulnerable adults through completing timely assessments, and developing and implementing effective care plans, including provision of equipment and structural adaptations that safeguard vulnerable adults. They work within the legislative framework at all times and in partnership with internal and external partners and agencies.
Occupational Therapists at Level 2 are also expected to develop more complex person centred packages of support; this may include rehabilitation / reablement, provision of equipment and structural adaptations. They will carry a full caseload, including multifaceted cases and complex manual handling assessments, and will work with minimal supervision.
Occupational Therapists at Level 3 are also expected to provide reports to safeguarding strategy meetings or review meetings as required, as well as managing multifaceted cases (including those requiring complicated equipment and major structural adaptations that keep people and their carers safe).  At this level, there is a need to have substantial moving and handling experience and the need to support less experienced colleagues.
