It is a diverse team of talented individuals, spanning a wide range of specialities and benefiting from many world-leading healthcare experts. We deliver more than 14,000 training experiences each year for our staff, providing an extensive range of learning opportunities. Staff can benefit from exceptional professional development opportunities and we will work with you to build your career in mental health. In addition, our working relationship with King's Health Partners allows those working at the Trust to get involved in academic research.

An excellent opportunity has arisen for an experienced and motivated Occupational Therapist to join the National Autism Unit a national, specialist inpatient and day-care service based at the Bethlem Royal Hospital.

The service offers over 20 years of experience in the management of adults with autism spectrum disorders, who have additional mental health difficulties and offending or challenging behaviour. We provide in-depth assessments and effective, evidence-based, patient centred treatments. We are committed to facilitating rapid recovery, and assist our patients in the transition towards a less restrictive community setting.

This post requires an innovative person with excellent communication skills, an interest in constantly improving standards of care and experience of working with multi-professional teams and carers. You will in turn receive support from senior managers and colleagues and could access a variety of training offered within the CAG and wider Trust.

We are committed to helping to develop the people that come to work with us. We know that the Trust can only be as good as the people who work here and we’ll invest in you to maximise that potential. That’s why we really welcome and value people so highly. In short, if you’ve got what it takes we’d be delighted for you to come and work with us.
