- This role offers a full time temporary contract, hybrid working opportunities, and a competitive salary.

You'll Be a Perfect Fit If You:

- Are a registered occupational therapist with a passion for and experience of neurological rehabilitation.
- Have a working knowledge of neurological conditions and the current guidelines, legislation, and policies about stroke.
- Thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment where creativity is encouraged.
- Possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills to build strong relationships with people, families, and colleagues.
- Are a team player who enjoys sharing knowledge and collaborating towards a common goal.
- If you're a passionate OT who wants to make a real difference in a supportive, forward-thinking environment, we want to hear from you!

As part of our goal to improve our organisational culture and create a great place to work together for the people of Edinburgh, we want to make sure that we’re bringing the best people into our roles, not just in their skills and experience but also in their approach to work.

To help achieve this, we’re changing the way we interview and assess candidates by moving from a competency-based interview approach to a behavioural and technical (skills for the job) based approach. This new way of interviewing will allow us to assess how you think and how you would bring Our Behaviours of Respect, Integrity and Flexibility into your ways of working.


We're committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.

Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range.
