Challenge – you will be challenged on a daily basis, dealing with competing responsibilities and finding the right balance between various tasks – your self-motivation and determination will allow you to breeze through the day, remaining flexible and decisive – you must be able to delegate work effectively and be hands on with your managerial approach, keeping in mind the development of your team with constructive and worthwhile supervision – you will support with the triaging of clients and the rehabilitation process as well as undertaking risk assessment within the home environment – as well as looking after your team and clients, you will be a project lead and assist in change management, supporting the service lead in future developments

Critical Thinking – we want you to think outside the box and be a key problem solver by always being solution focused and striving for improvements where possible – you will have an exceptional understanding of what role OT plays within social care, knowing what level of support and skills are required for each individual – we want you to use your intuition and methodical attributes when it comes to investigating and reporting on incidents or 'near misses' to ensure transparency – you will be able to clearly identify and articulate any findings and use them as learning opportunities to improve upon for the future

Inclusivity: we don't have a "one size fits all" idealism, we embrace diversity and that includes around personal and family requirements so appreciate that you'll want to be working from home when you can, your hours may vary or change and for us – delivering successful outcomes is more important than watching the clock
