Three occupational therapists, ideally with previous experience working in a hospital or social care setting, are currently being recruited for and by Rutland County Council.
Considered to be one of England’s top councils for providing health and adult social care services, Rutland County Council’s bid to employ three new occupational therapists is to support its present staff members and the community needs as a whole.
Practice consultant Jane Mold said: “I currently lead the therapy service here at Rutland County Council, where we’ve been able to challenge the traditional approach to therapy and create a really exciting working environment for our staff.
“Working for a local council can be a really positive move for any therapist at any stage of their career. We provide staff with all the help and support they need to develop and progress professionally. We also work hard to provide the best possible treatment for our service users and are always looking at ways to be innovative.”
In addition to a competitive salary and a range of benefits including a pension scheme and access to fitness activities and facilities, the Council also caters to staff by generating investment to further skill development and facilitate professional growth.
Alan Walters, a cabinet member at Rutland County Council for health and adult social care, commented: “This is a fantastic opportunity to work in an incredibly important position that allows you to make a genuine difference to the lives of a huge range of people.”
