Seashell Trust runs Outstanding (Ofsted) special School and Specialist College together with 17 on-site residential homes for children and young people with complex learning disabilities, physical disabilities and multisensory impairments. Both posts will be based in the college.
Due to expansion, an exciting new opportunity has arisen for two new Occupational Therapists to join our multi-disciplinary therapy team to provide in depth assessment and intervention plans for young people with a variety of complex needs, including physical and learning difficulties, multi-sensory impairment, communication difficulties, autism and challenging behaviour.
Candidates for this role must have a recognised Occupational Therapy qualification (BSc or MSc), must be registered as a practitioner with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and be willing to register with the British Association of Occupational Therapists. Candidates must have a desire to work with people with learning disabilities and challenging behaviours and an interest in Ayres sensory integration. Ideally they will have experience of working with this client group as an Occupational Therapist and some level of sensory integration training.
At Seashell Trust we strive to deliver excellence by enhancing the communication skills, social skills, and overall independence and quality of life for our children and young people.
We provide an excellent care environment that is safeguarded and committed to promoting learning, respect and independence, as well as dignity for all of our children and young adults.
We value our employees and recognise the need to recruit, retain and develop highly skilled and committed talent who share our vision and values!
We value diversity and are committed to equal opportunities. Disabled candidates who meet the minimum criteria on the person specification will be guaranteed an interview.
This charity is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
