About Us

Surrey County Council is an ambitious organisation with a focus on standing up for the interests of Surrey residents, promoting independence and ensuring they get the services they need. At our very heart we are committed to improving outcomes for our most vulnerable residents, aiming to empower them to live healthy, active, and fulfilling lives; providing everyone with the health and social care support they need to promote their independence.

The Reablement service supports this agenda by supporting people in their own homes to promote wellbeing and independence through skills gain programmes and we are embedding a therapy led Reablement offer.

About the Role

In this role you will have the opportunity to build on or develop new supervisory, coaching and teaching skills with support from the Reablement Therapy Leads by taking on an advisory role with non-qualified staff, Newly Qualified OTs, students and Reablement colleagues.

In return, we can offer you the support you need to succeed; we are committed to your personal development with us and offer regular, high-quality supervision and training opportunities together with a number of staff benefits and wellbeing options.

It is an exciting time to work in the public sector, with great challenges each day but also real opportunities to shape something different. If you feel you have the right knowledge, skills and importantly, hold the right values and behaviours we want to hear from you!
