Job description

Background to the job: Acquired brain injury (ABI) is one of the commonest causes of death and disability in working age adults. Survivors of brain injury can live with a range of difficulties affecting their physical and cognitive functioning. Living with a brain injury can result in social isolation, mental health problems, difficulties with family relationships and unemployment.

Headway SELNWK is a medium size charity, over thirty years old, that supports people affected by ABI. We provide support services across SE London and North West Kent in the community and at our day service. Most of our members’ support is funded by social services or the NHS. Whilst we want to maximise this funding where possible, we also want to develop models of support that are not dependent upon statutory funding.

Headway has well established links with local hospitals notably with the Major Trauma Centre at Kings’ College Hospital.  We foster active links with a range of community providers including neurological rehabilitation and social work teams and other Third Sector organisations.

Headway SELNWK is entering a phase of new development and is looking to recruit an experienced and dynamic Occupational Therapist to improve the quality of our services and the inclusion of our members and their families.

Main Purpose

  • Provide occupational therapy assessment and treatment to survivors of acquired brain injury (ABI) who have been referred to the Headway SELNWK services.
  • To provide this assessment and treatment to members of the Headway day service at the day centre and in a variety of domestic and public settings.
  • To focus primarily on activity and participation issues.
  • To line manage, train and supervise the support team

Main OT Duties

  1. To undertake comprehensive occupational therapy assessment of individuals with complex neurological presentations as an autonomous practitioner, including the assessment of neurological impairment (including cognition, perception, upper limb impairment and fatigue) as well as activity limitations and  participation restrictions (as defined in the ICF)
  2. To negotiate goal-directed intervention with individuals and / or carers to establish a realistic person-centred treatment programme, and promote an individual’s choice
  3. To formulate and deliver a person-centred individual treatment programme based on a sound knowledge of evidence based practice and treatment options using clinical assessment and reasoning skills

Interviews scheduled week commencing 9th December 2019.
