We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Occupational Therapist to develop a new role supporting frailty at Scarborough Hospital.

The post will be based on the acute medical admissions ward and will involve linking closely with the elderly team and RATS in ED, as well as working closely with the nursing and medical teams on the ward.

You will have a good knowledge of the SAFER principles and use this ethos, alongside an understanding of community provision and local authority referral pathways, to ensure the efficient flow of patients through the system.

A flexible approach is essential and a passion for 'trusted assessor' principles will be an advantage when patients are handed over from ED or transferred to the downstream wards.

HCPC registration and a degree/diploma in Occupational Therapy is required for this role

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
