Every case is different - so no two days are ever the same.



You'll meet people with a wide range of conditions and disabilities through face-to-face consultations. You could be visiting them in their homes or welcoming them to the consultation centre. Either way, you'll produce reviews and expand your clinical knowledge, as you handle diverse cases that broaden your experience.

Just bring practical experience as a qualified Occupational Therapist and a valid drivers' license (for roles outside central London). You'll find our thorough in-house development is well over the required CPD hours to revalidate and maintain your professional registration.


During the recruitment and onboarding process we will be adhering to the social distancing guidance from the government - there will be no face to face interviews. Start dates are available - should you be successful; training will be carried out online at home where you are safe. Various roles are available including Back Office positions. Whichever one you pick, you can expect excellent benefits, including:



* 25 days' annual leave, with the option to buy 10 and sell up to five days
* Employer-matched pension scheme, up to 10%
* Life assurance, private medical insurance and medical indemnity insurance
