Area: South Gloucester Team

Are you ready to take on a new challenge and join our established Community Rehabilitation Team (CRT) supporting the residents of Bristol, North Somerset & South Gloucestershire to make meaningful improvements in their lives and enhance their physical and emotional well-being?

Do you have a passion to deliver exceptional Community-based therapy and support to our service users to improve their quality of life and optimise their function? If the answer is yes, you could be the one for us!

We are seeking enthusiastic and innovative staff to join our busy and dynamic team working to prevent hospital admissions for service users and to facilitate a timely hospital discharge to their homes when safe to do so. You will work in a Community setting (usually in service user’s homes) to promote independence and choice for our service users and their carers, providing help with activities of daily living, improving service users mobility and supervising and progressing home exercise programmes. Previous experience in health or social care is desirable but a comprehensive induction and skills-based training programme will make sure you are able to confidently undertake your role. You will be working within a team that includes Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists and can expect regular support and supervision from these team members, including 1:1 sessions and a peer group specific In-service training programme. We also work closely with our community nursing colleagues and other health and social care providers.

We have full and part time positions available - full driving licence and access to a car are essential.

Please contact Gemma at Piers Meadows for a chat about the role.
