The Community Therapy Team (for Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch) at Dorset HealthCare University NHS Foundation Trust, is looking to recruit two enthusiastic Band 3 Rehabilitation Assistants.

This is a full-time role of 37.5 hours per week. Part time hours can be considered.

The successful candidate will support Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists providing and delivering rehabilitation interventions to adults in the community.

The aim of the team is to provide high quality care that includes prevention, rehabilitation and review for people living with a long term condition in order to enable and empower them to maximise their independence in the community. Our staff cooperate well with local specialist services e.g. community mental health services, and social services as required to do so.

The successful applicant will be committed to assisting therapists to deliver high quality, evidence based interventions, with a view to supporting patients to attain their chosen goals. You will work in group settings, in patients' homes, and with patients individually in our therapy gym.

The post will require lone working, and a mature approach to organising your workload. The successful applicant should demonstrate a flexible, innovative and enthusiastic approach; effective communication skills; ability to work well with colleagues; professional commitment; and ability to work extended hours and weekends. You will receive excellent in- house training and external training opportunities; regular clinical supervision; peer support and our support with your continuing professional development.

Employment in this post requires an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, which the Trust will cover the cost of. Applicants who subscribe to the DBS update service are able to present a valid DBS certificate instead of requiring a new check.

At Dorset HealthCare we’re on a mission to empower people to make the most of their lives through our outstanding, joined-up healthcare services. We’re a dynamic, forward-looking Trust, running 12 community hospitals, specialist inpatient facilities and a wide range of integrated community and mental health services for a population of almost 800,000 people.

We do things differently here – it’s one of the reasons the CQC rated us ‘outstanding’ in 2019. It’s also why 95% of patients across our services say they have a good or very good experience of our services and 89% of staff feel they can really make a difference. Whether you’re looking to work with us in one of our bustling market towns, vibrant urban locations, thriving seaside spots, or among the rolling hills of Dorset, there are lots of ways you can make a difference in our communities.

Our 7,000-strong workforce is at the heart of what we do and our success is a testament to our brilliant people. We're all about building a workplace for the future, we believe in equal opportunities and we celebrate diversity. We’re an inclusive workplace, where everyone is welcome, everyone can be authentic, and we are all encouraged to be the best version of ourselves.

Working with us you’ll be part of a strong team, challenge yourself, build a career, and teach us what we don’t know. And you’ll be working towards our vision to be better every day through excellence, compassion and expertise in all we do.
