Bon Accord Care is a fully funded, arm’s length external organisation of Aberdeen City Council. We work in an integrated way with health and social care organisations across the city to support citizens, promote independence and healthy lives, whilst investing in our workforce. We play an instrumental part in supporting people to maintain their health, wellbeing, safety and independence with a focus on self-management and the provision of equipment and adaptations.

For those made a provisional offer there is the opportunity to work as an occupational therapy assistant on our support pool prior to obtaining registration.

Return to practice occupational therapists can be supported to regain their registration with HCPC and we welcome further discussion on how we can facilitate this. We can also provide you with the opportunity to speak to therapists who have recently achieved their re-registration with us.

We also welcome discussion or applications from occupational therapists working in other areas who would like to gain experience working in the community.
