Occupational Therapist – Technology Enhanced Care

We are looking to appoint a motivated and enthusiastic individual, who is able to work on their initiative and part of a project team within Adult Social Care to increase the use of Technology Enabled Care (TEC) with Service Users in West Berkshire, allowing them to remain at home, avoid admission to hospital, delay the need for long term care and support and reduce the need to consider alternative housing.

This individual will require good communication skills and the ability to influence others, providing expert support, advice and training to front-line practitioners.  You will require a good understanding and awareness of the technology available and a desire to promote this within the Authority.

West Berkshire Council offer excellent employment benefits such as flexible working, access to a wide range of relevant training, local government pension scheme, family friendly policies, a range of local discounts and much more. You will also be entitled to a generous annual leave entitlement of 26 days per annum rising to a maximum of 34 days.

We are ideally looking to offer the successful candidate the full number of hours advertised above. We may however consider offering less hours than advertised providing they meet the requirements of the role and service which will be determined by the recruiting manager.
