Occupational Therapist for Gesher School

As we are looking to employ an OT with an immediate start, interviews will be set up with any suitable application forms that are received from interested candidates on an on-going basis.

Gesher is a unique Jewish Independent SEN Primary School for primary aged children in North London.

We are looking for an experienced Occupational Therapist who feels that they would fit into Gesher’s ethos and philosophy. We are a therapy based school that believes that readiness to learn is necessary to support children’s full potential and progress. Gesher believes in a team approach and would expect therapists to work based on children’s needs including class based, individual and small group sessions. The team will be made up of a Speech and Language Therapist, an Occupational Therapist, Dramatherapist, Educational Psychologist and the Education team. We will work towards tailoring individual programmes while also expecting therapists to support families and staff to ensure consistency and multi-professional involvement.

We are looking to employ an experienced private therapist to work part time (2.5 days/week) currently with a possibility of being put on a one year full time contract in September 2018. Although the applicant does not need to be Jewish, it would be expected that they respect the ethos and values of the school.

We offer the opportunity to be part of one of the first therapy based schools of its kind, part time hours, manageable workload, to work with some amazing people and most of all; to help develop a model to support children with Special Educational Needs to succeed! Please apply to:
