1 Year Fixed Term Contract – Full Time
Redbridge is an ambitious, diverse and exciting east-London borough. What we do is driven by changing our relationship with local people to support our vision. As a result, we've developed innovative ways to build our communities and transform our Council.
We're one of the fastest growing parts of the country and the third most diverse London borough. Our communities are attracted by a mixture of excellent schools, relatively affordable housing, high-quality open space and rapid transport connections into the heart of the city.

We are delighted to be able to offer a committed and dynamic experienced Occupational Therapist the opportunity to join our Assistive Technology Programme within Health and Adult Social Services at Redbridge Council.
We work in close partnership with colleagues in health, social care and the voluntary community sector to provide a high-quality service. We are looking for someone who is highly motivated and enthusiastic to join our team, ideally who has previous experience working within Social Care.
We’ll provide you with:
• Excellent CPD opportunities and career progression
• A supportive management team. Regular team meetings, peer support and supervision, clinical focus groups and the opportunity to attend Regional Networks
• Annual Appraisal
• Opportunities to contribute to Local Authority quality improvement work and innovations
• A competitive salary and pension package

• A generous annual leave allowance
