Job description

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a team that develops new products and provides innovative services which deliver greater choice for disabled people. We are a creative and inspiring team, operating with the freedom to explore and deliver exciting new ways of working, beyond statutory provision.

We are seeking a Band 5 Occupational Therapist to play a vital role in the delivery of Designability’s clinical services, primarily the Wizzybug Loan Scheme.

You will have:

  • Experience of delivering occupational therapy services, understanding and exceeding client expectations
  • Clinical knowledge of a wide range of disabilities, with both theoretical and practical experience
  • Excellent communication skills in working with service users, putting them at ease, building rapport and trust.

The number of disabled people in the UK is growing each year and our products are
now needed more than ever. We deliver choice by involving disabled people across
our organisation and throughout the design process to create innovative product solutions not available elsewhere.

You will be joining a team which includes mechanical and electronics engineers, workshop technicians, product designers, occupational therapists, fundraisers, researchers and administrators. Our team is led by strong values: we are creative, inclusive and practical, with our vision being to create a future where every person with a disability has the products they want to live the life they choose.

Designability is in a strong financial position, with healthy reserves to support our ambitious plans to expand our charitable operations.

Designability was recently awarded second place in the ‘Best Charities to Work For 2020’ list by Third Sector which is a reflection of our team highly rating the fact that we encourage activities that create strong teams and foster good personal relationships. Our staff also stated their confidence in Designability’s leadership and strategic planning.  Please see Job Description for more details.
