The new Therapy-led ward at Tonbridge Cottage Hospital offers an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual to join our friendly and dynamic team in the delivery of rehabilitation of mainly older adults.

The post holder will be assisting the team in providing a high quality, seven day service to help patients regain their independence and quality of life through supporting the therapists in delivering one to one and group therapy sessions according to individualised treatment plans developed by the therapists.

You will be committed to personal development and have good communication (verbal and non-verbal) and interpersonal skills, along with the ability to use your own initiative when working within the team.

You will complete an internal training programme and clinical competencies whilst working under the supervision of registered therapists, until you are able to undertake delegated tasks independently.

Candidates must have evidence of a good secondary education and a NVQ3 or equivalent (foundation degree) in healthcare or health related science and will be keen to develop their skills relevant to the rehabilitation of older adults. Experience of working in a physiotherapy or occupational therapy department is highly desirable.

The post-holder will be expected to participate in frequent weekend working, based on a seven day shift pattern. Job shares will be considered.

Interviews to be held on the 4th April 2018.
