Occupational Therapist and Occupational Health recruitment agencies
Occupational Therapy (OT) is a field that involves assisting people with physical, mental, and social difficulties to achieve their full potential. Duties in this role can vary greatly - depending of the needs of the patient concerned - but will always centre around helping the patient to live life as independently as possible. Many specialist recruitment agencies exist which assist organisations in hiring staff in the OT Sector - and this page of our website is the easiest way to find them.
Occupational Therapy recruitment
Employment agencies in the Healthcare Industry tend to be specialised within their niche - and provide an expert service to clients looking to employ new recruits in this area. Whether you are looking to hire new people or secure work in the sector, this page will allow you to search for agencies specialising in Occupational Therapist recruitment, sorted by location.
What qualifications are needed?
In order to get a job as an Occupational Therapist, you will usually need to obtain a degree or postgraduate qualification that is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Such qualifications include a BSc (Hons) or Postgraduate Diploma in Occupational Therapy. Further information on entry routes can be found at the HCPC website.
One skill which is universally in demand in this sector is the ability to deal with people - specifically people who may be frustrated by the problems they are experiencing, and require a source of motivation. Other desirable attributes include a good level of physical (and mental) stamina, positivity, and a good sense of humour.
Salaries in this sector
Within the NHS pay scale, a newly qualified Occupational Therapist would start their career on Band 5 (which starts at roughly £22,000 per year). More senior roles can see Therapists earning into Bands 6 and 7 - meaning that over £40,000 is a possibility. Pay varies for Therapists working in the private sector or in temporary / locum roles, but may be higher than those for permanent employment in the public sector.
