Post Covid Assessment Service - Occupational Therapist
The Northamptonshire Post Covid Assessment service is expanding and we would like to recruit Occupational Therapists to work within the team. The successful candidate will be an experienced practitioner with a high degree of autonomy who can assess and plan interventions and support for patients presenting with symptoms of Post Covid syndrome. You will be supported by a professional and dedicated team who have a wide range of experience to support provision of safe effective practice. Some experience of working with patients experiencing chronic fatigue would be an advantage but not essential . The post is offered on a fixed term basis until 31 March 2022.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
Applications from job seekers who require sponsorship to work in the United Kingdom (UK) are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. Please note that from January 2021, to work in the UK all candidates who are not UK or Republic of Ireland (RoI) nationals require sponsorship unless you have permission to work via another route. Non UK / RoI candidates wishing to apply can self-assess the likelihood of obtaining a Certificate of Sponsorship here. It is vital that you provide full and accurate details of your current immigration status on the application form. Overseas applicants applying for entry clearance into the UK must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided in continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Guidance can be found here. Not everyone needs a ‘Skilled Worker’ visa. If you are applying for a vacancy in health or adult social care, check if you’re eligible to apply for the Health and Care Worker visa instead. It’s cheaper to apply for and you do not need to pay the annual immigration health surcharge
The postholder will have access to vulnerable people in the course of their normal duties and as such this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (Amendment) (England and Wales) Order 2020 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
