An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Sherborne Integrated Community Rehabilitation Team based at the Yeatman Community Hospital to cover maternity leave.

The Sherborne Integrated Community Rehabilitation Team is a multi-disciplinary team offering therapy to a wide range of people within their home environments to prevent avoidable hospital admissions and facilitate earlier hospital discharge as well as in-reaching onto the wards. It is essential that you have experience of rehabilitation or a caring role, preferably in both ward and community settings, as well as having good verbal, written and team working skills. You will need to be flexible in your approach and confident to work alone. Basic IT skills and NVQ level 2/3 would be advantageous.

In return for your enthusiasm and commitment, we can provide an opportunity for you to develop your clinical skills and experience in a supportive team, with regular supervision and appraisals.  This post is offered as a Fixed Term Contract for one year.
