You will work with a busy team within a small multi-disciplinary Occupational Health Unit, as well as independently, where you will be expected to work and communicate effectively in the team. An element of clinical supervision will be offered. You will be expected to work with the team to manage the clinical diary so that services are delivered to meet the needs of the business, working across a range of clinical areas. You will work in a fast paced and rapidly changing and developing environment with a national imperative to continuously improve productivity.
