Assistant Therapy Practitioner

Band 4

Powys is cited as being a wonderful place to live and work.  It is a rural health setting where you can personally and professionally grow and patients are truly at the heart of care provision. If you are an ambitious professional in search of job satisfaction that others can only dream about, prepare for a very pleasant surprise as Powys is the place to be. We are looking for staff who have energy, enthusiasm, commitment and drive and who are patient-centered. Whatever your career aspirations, we are committed to supporting and developing you.

Powys Teaching Health Board is responsible for meeting the health and wellbeing needs of the population of Powys. As a rural health board we have around 133,000 people living across an area that is a quarter of the land mass of Wales. Powys is the largest county in Wales with Snowdonia to the North and the Brecon Beacons to the South, the spectacular scenery is something to behold.   Working in partnership, we commission and provide award-winning hospital, community, mental health and learning disability services, so our portfolio is varied and diverse. We are proud to offer patients an unrivalled level of care, not to mention a wide range of careers for professionals who want to make a real difference.  If working for Powys Teaching Health Board is something that is of interest, we may have an opportunity just for you!

All applicants are invited to apply in welsh, any application submitted in Welsh will not be treated less favourably than an application made in English.

We are seeking a positive motivated self directed therapy assistant to cover the community. The work will involve carrying an independent case load under the direction of both Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy clinicians. They will also be expected to contribute to self management groups such as 'Confident strides' and 'Fatigue Management'. The work is varied and challenging but will be supported by the multidisciplinary team.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.

Closing date: 24th March 2019
