Are you a passionate Occupational Therapist looking for a new challenge?

Do you have what it takes to offer clinically effective, pupil centred assessments and interventions?

Tradewind Recruitment is currently searching for an experienced Occupational Therapist to join a Hillingdon Primary Special Needs Provision. The school provides Specialist Teaching and Therapy to just under 200 children aged 4 – 11 years. All pupils at the school have a diagnosis of Autism and/or associated communication issues – many pupils also have high level sensory needs.

In this role you will be reporting directly to the school’s Team of Senior Leaders. You will hold many responsibilities, but your role will focus on:

Conducting clinically effective and pupil centred occupational therapy assessments and interventions that are both evidence based and effective

Attending meetings with Senior Leaders and families to coordinate a uniformed approach to pupil education

Supporting Class Teachers on how to integrate motor development, emotional regulation and functional skills into the classroom

Monitoring and evaluating pupil progress – and modifying timetables/interventions as required

Providing on-line and in person support to families and carers

The ideal Occupational Therapist will be passionate about providing the highest levels of care and education to students with Autism. You will be patient, kind and compassionate and have an ability to build a strong rapport with students and parents alike. This role will be incredibly rewarding and would suit an experienced Occupational Therapist who is looking to further develop their skillset as the school offers lots of CPD and progression opportunities.

To Apply for this OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST role you will have:

Ideally previous experience working within a Complex Needs School (preferred but not essential)

A calm, confident demeanour with a proactive attitude

A clear, enhanced DBS on the update service (or the means to apply for a new one)
