What’s special about this opportunity?

Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust can provide you with a dynamic, people-centred environment, where, as an integral part of our ward therapy team, you will be empowered to adopt a personalised approach to patient care that maximises independence, choice and control, following our philosophy of enabling people to reach and maintain their optimum level of health and wellbeing.

We value our employees and put people first. We will provide you with an excellent working environment that has just been recognised with a ‘Good’ rating overall, and as an ‘Outstanding’, well-led, organisation in our latest CQC inspection, which found that: ‘Staff and managers consistently spoke to and about patients with warmth and positive regard, showing a knowledge of their individual likes and dislikes, as well as their clinical presentations.’

Working in a passionate team, you will have access to our Trust-wide Learning and Development programme and be supported in your career and personal growth with opportunities to help you to build your Continuing Professional Development portfolio, enabling you to extend your skills and ensure that you excel.

We are pioneers in compassionate leadership and Quality Improvement, which is about creating a culture where everyone has a voice and where service users and staff collaborate to have a direct impact on the things that matter most.

About you:

A qualified occupational therapist, with experience in the rehabilitation of older people, you will have excellent communication and people skills and a determination to support patients and their families through creative engagement. Enthusiastic to share your knowledge with more junior team members, you will maintain patient safety and dignity at all times. Ensuring a seamless delivery across a multi-disciplinary team and support services, you will communicate complex and sensitive information in an effective and compassionate manner. Your energy and drive will be rewarded with the support of a dedicated team that strives to create a progressive, warm and considerate environment. You should be a car driver to enable you to complete access visits for our patient group as part of discharge planning.

What’s next?

If you share our passion for people and the dedication to excel, we’d love to hear from you.

We are happy to answer any questions that you may have or arrange an informal site visit. Please don’t hesitate to call Fran Turner on 01753 638550 or email: Francesca.Turner@berkshire.nhs.uk who’ll be delighted to help.

In addition to a competitive salary, as a valued member of our team, you will receive generous annual leave, free parking, have access to our salary car scheme, support with childcare and as a respected member of the NHS, discounts from high street retailers and restaurants.

St Marks’ Hospital is a great place to work. Based in the Royal Borough of Maidenhead, we enjoy excellent transport links into London and the South. 

We’d love to welcome you to our warm, friendly team, who want to help you to make your career reflect your ambitions.
