Dorset is renowned for its quality of living, picturesque countryside and its famous Jurassic Coastline. You could improve your quality of life by combining these benefits with working for a transformational organisation.

Dorset Community Health Services is the Provider Arm of NHS Dorset and our aim is to be an innovative and responsive provider, delivering high quality integrated care to make a positive difference to the health, well-being and independence of the people in Dorset.
Do you want to be part of a forward thinking, dynamic, friendly innovative team?

If the answer is yes, we have the job for you.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an Occupational Therapist to join the Dorchester Integrated Community Rehabilitation Team. The Team is multi-professional and provides rehabilitation to community patients, supporting with early discharges from hospital and admission avoidance.

You should be a committed, dynamic, motivated professional having good organisational skills, the ability to prioritise your work and excellent communication skills.

You should have recent experience of working in a similar environment. Awareness of the effects of ill health and the ageing process and a basic level of IT literacy are an essential requirement.

The team is based at Dorchester Local Office in Wareham, and provides therapy in Dorchester town and the surrounding rural areas; you will need to have the ability to travel by car as well.

As a key member of the team you will find the experience challenging, rewarding and varied.
