The successful candidate will be able to work independently and as part of a larger multidisciplinary team, to follow instruction and to problem solve clinical situations as they arise. The ability to show initiative to identify and support service users goals and a willingness to learn and think flexibly are integral to this role.

Good IT skills,  a driving licence and access to a vehicle are essential, along with the ability to undertake study appropriate to the role.

Some experience of working in a care environment would be beneficial but not essential.

We are fortunate to have a full MDT as part of our core team in Fieldbay. The team includes Manual Handling Practitioners, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Hydrotherapy and Positive Behavioural Support (PBS). We also have Speech and Language Therapy (SLT) and access to a Consultant Psychiatrist.


Our aim is to maintain and where possible, improve the overall independence levels of the people we support, through rehabilitation (if appropriate), stimulation and social integration so everyone can live their best life. Of course, we also support individuals who are less able and ensure that everyone benefits from the highest standards of care and support during their time with us. If you are a clinician, looking for your next opportunity then we’d be delighted to meet with you!
