Job type/hours: Permanent, 37.5 hours per week

Brainwave is a long-established national charity providing therapy to children predominantly aged between 6 months to 12 years.  The children we work with have a range of conditions and diagnoses including cerebral palsy, developmental delay, autism, brain injury, Down’s syndrome, along with other genetic conditions and children with no formal diagnosis.

We are seeking an experienced Paediatric Occupational Therapist with at least two years of post-graduate experience to join our multidisciplinary team.  An interest in or experience with children with Sensory Processing Disorders is desired however, not essential.  HCPC and RCOT registration is essential.

The therapist will be joining an expanding multidisciplinary team with Speech and Language Therapists, Physiotherapists and Learning Development Specialist to deliver joint assessments and treatment programmes.

This is a great opportunity to assess and treat children with a variety of complex backgrounds, but with the luxury of time.  We typically see clients over a one to two day periods so that a joint MDT approach can be achieved.
