Job Description

We work collaboratively with communities to enable children and young people with social, emotional, and mental health needs to unlock their full potential.


We build trust by being honest, transparent, and accountable in the way we work with children and young people, staff, and partners and by providing services and programmes whose outcomes are measurable and evidenced based.


Relationships are at the heart of our work. We prioritise communication and collaboration with partners, families, and communities, believing that by working together we create more effective and holistic outcomes for children and young people.


We co-create opportunities for our children, young people, parents/carers and staff to actively participate in decision-making that influences change. We promote the voices of children and young people in our organisation and the wider community.


We provide a nurturing approach based on safety and space for creativity, exploration, and growth. We support and care for our children, young people, and staff to realise their potential.


We are committed to measuring our impact through a data driven method to develop our programmes and make a greater difference to the lives of children, young people, and their parents and carers.


Our team is growing and we are looking for 2 creative, enthusiastic Occupational Therapists to join our team as we develop our service to meet the needs of SEMH children throughout London. If you:

  • Enjoy working with children
  • Are Skilled in delivering client centred practise
  • Experienced in building therapeutic and Professional relationships
  • Want to work in an innovate setting

Then this is the role for you!

We are passionate about delivering a quality service that is flexible and effective, while ensuring our clinicians have manageable caseloads and opportunities to develop their CPD in relation to Trauma.

Drawing on your experience as a qualified OT, you will also provide Occupational Therapy assessment, intervention and training in primary schools within our School’s Programme, our own special school, and within schools for our external partners.

You will work closely with the charity’s speech and language therapists, psychotherapists, team managers and Corner School staff in order to provide holistic support for the children. As we support children who are experiencing or at risk of social emotional mental health difficulties, a large part of your assessment and intervention will focus on mental health and overall well-being in conjunction with supporting skills for learning.

There is scope for this role to sit at either a band 5 or a band 6 level, and we welcome applications from candidates at both levels of experience. At the higher level, this role will provide you with the opportunity to develop your clinical skills and management experience, in addition to supporting service improvement and development in this specialist area.

Main purpose of the role includes:

  • Supporting the Occupational Therapy Lead to ensure that the occupational therapy service is robust, effective and flexible and able to adapt to challenges of a student led service model
  • Support the OT Lead to develop and deliver a robust induction and training programme for students, including training on policies, procedures and paediatric assessment and intervention in line with the needs of the schools/programmes
  • Independently manage a clinical caseload providing assessment and intervention
  • Develop and deliver training programmes and workshops that provide charity staff, school staff, volunteers, OT students and parents with additional skills that support children to better access the curriculum, develop their play and life skills and thus improve their health and wellbeing.
