  • Are you a qualified Occupational Therapist looking for a new challenge or career progression?
  • Do you have a background and passion for paediatric support?

As specialist SEND consultants, we are actively looking to connect with Occupational Therapists who are looking to work in the field of paediatrics or education. We want to speak to professionals with a passion for working with vulnerable children with highly complex needs.


About the role of school-based Occupational Therapist:

Based in highly complex settings, you will look at the whole child, tackling individual tasks, and helping students find ways to do the things they need and want to do. You will liaise closely with the multi-disciplinary clinical team to provide an intensive treatment service. You will engage the children and young people within the school in innovative, helpful, therapeutic and meaningful activities, supporting them in learning and reaching their full potential. We work with a range of schools that cater to children with a vast range of needs. Please speak to us to find out where your experience would fit best. Some of our schools will be for children who are at risk, highly vulnerable with complex mental health conditions and sometimes comorbid needs. Some will be Autism specialist schools, and others will support PMLD and complex disabilities and learning needs. We want to find the right place for you!


Requirements for school-based Occupational Therapist:

  • Hold a recognised Occupational Therapy degree, be HCPC registered and a registered member of the British College of Occupational Therapists.
  • Experience working with highly vulnerable children or children with complex needs.
  • We get most opportunities for band 6/7 OTs, but we want to hear from overseas trained and newly qualified OTs too!


What you can expect as an Occupational Therapist:

  • School hours are typically 8.30 to 3.30/4pm, so for our OTs looking to balance family life, this is a huge benefit.
  • This also benefits our OTs who work privately or like to have free time to work on other projects!
