Job description

Maxxima is currently searching for a Band 6 Occupational Therapist to work in Rapid Community Response Service (RCRS), for a council in Cheshire. We are ideally looking for a band 6 OT but will consider an experienced band 5, or a band 7.

The RCRS provide urgent assessment and support (in two days) for a short time, to help people recover and retain independence. The team is particularly important in during the current coronavirus pandemic as they may help people:
  • remain at home when things start to get very challenging or difficult
  • recover after a fall, accident, acute illness or operation that would otherwise put the person at risk of going into hospital
  • help people avoid going into hospital or residential care unnecessarily  
  • help people return home more quickly after a hospital stay

This role will be full-time with a working pattern of Mon-Fri 8.30-4.30, on a 3 month contract, with potential extension. Candidates who are looking for part-time, or other working patterns will also be considered. Being a driver and having access to a car is essential for this position.

Rates will depend on experience but can be expected to be between £21-26 p/h.

If you are interested in this position please apply above, or contact our Occupational Therapy team here at Maxxima on 02077498286.
