Occupational Therapist

This opportunity is available in Colchester, Chelmsford, Southend on Sea, and Romford/Brentwood. Use your occupational therapy or similar skills to support a vital charity which helps people with disabilities to live fuller and more independent lives. You will do this by providing advice to our ingenious volunteers who design and custom make pieces of equipment for disabled people. You will also help assess the needs of those people who self-refer.

Requests for help come from health professionals or directly from the public and we only help where no existing product is commercially available. You will be joining a local group of equipment makers and others who all want to do a good job for disabled people.

We are looking for practising occupational therapists or similar health professionals. You will be committed to finding creative practical solutions to enable people with disabilities achieve quality of life. You will have a knowledge of existing commercially available equipment as the charity only makes bespoke equipment that is not currently available. 

Practical Considerations:

You will need to work independently from home, to keep in touch with key members of the local group and/or attend group meetings. And out of pocket expenses are paid.
