NHS Scotland is committed to encouraging equality and diversity among our workforce and eliminating unlawful discrimination. The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative and for each employee to feel respected and able to give their best.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an HCPC registered Occupational Therapist to join our supportive and welcoming band five rotation.  

This post is perfect for a new graduate OT, an Occupational Therapy student awaiting registration or someone looking to broaden their experience within a varied rotational post.

In our band five rotation there are opportunities to rotate through orthopaedics, surgical, neuro / stroke rehabilitation, wheelchair services, the Inverness community teams and The National Treatment Centre.

In the post, you will work with patients with a wide variety of conditions and presentations.  
In the acute hospital rotations, your focus will be on facilitating safe and timely discharges from the hospital setting.  
In some parts of the rotation, there will be a requirement to work as part of a seven day rota.

You will have opportunities for continuous professional development, you will receive regular clinical supervision and you will have the opportunity to be involved in practice placement education.

The Raigmore Hospital / Inverness Community Occupational Therapy teams are warm and friendly teams, who deliver a high quality service with a dynamic and patient centred approach.

Inverness is the capital of the Scottish Highlands and offers a wide range of leisure opportunities for those looking to live in a beautiful city that is both well connected and is the gateway to the great outdoors.
A full driving licence is essential for this role.
Applicants that are due to obtain their Occupational Therapy qualification / HCPC Registration may be considered for this post.

Informal enquiries welcome to:

Jo Wilson, Lead OT (acute services), joanne.wilson15@nhs.scot
Jess Horsia, OT Team Lead (Inverness Community team), Jessica.horsia@nhs.scot
