The Council, which is regularly identified as a leading health and adult social care service provider, is looking for applicants with previous occupational therapist experience, ideally in a community, hospital or adult social care setting.
“I currently lead the Therapy Service here at Rutland County Council, where we’ve been able to challenge the traditional approach to therapy and create a really exciting working environment for our staff. Working for a local council can be a really positive move for any therapist, at any stage of their career. We provide staff with all the help and support they need to develop and progress, professionally. We also work hard to provide the best possible treatment for our service users and are always looking at ways to be innovative.”

As an employer, the Council is very supportive. We understand the importance of our staff, and invest heavily in our team to ensure that they have the right skills to not only deliver exceptional care but develop and progress professionally too.
