Job description

The School of Health and Social Care

The School of Health and Social Care has an excellent reputation for teaching and research. Our academic members of staff include occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, psychological therapists, nurses, social workers, oral health practitioners and sociologists. The School is run over two campuses; Southend and Colchester. Academic staff are supported by a team of administrative staff based at both Colchester and Southend campuses.

We are at the forefront of preparing people to solve real-life issues in health and society, offering courses that both commissioners and employers believe in. People are at the heart of all we do. We work in partnership with people from all walks of life, who offer us their expertise and experience, making us a team of people who truly understand what is needed from health and social care professionals – now and in the future.

The School of Health and Social Care is seeking to appoint two Lecturers in Occupational Therapy.

Duties of the Role

You will take an active part in the delivery and development of the Occupational Therapy programmes in the School. This role will require management, administration and organisation alongside support of students on our existing programmes, and generally enhancing our research-led teaching in Occupational Therapy.

Duties will include engaging effectively in substantive teaching and learning support roles in the School, supervising student projects, fieldwork and placements and incorporating subject and pedagogic research and/or scholarship into learning and assessment as part of an integrated approach to academic practice.

In addition, for Grade 9 ASER contracts, you will develop a research agenda, which pursues individual and/or collaborative research objectives and produce research outputs for publication

A full list of duties can be found within the respective jobpacks attached.

Qualifications and Skills required The successful candidate will have a relevant degree or be close to completion or equivalent professional experience or practice and HCPC registration as an Occupational Therapist or an equivalent EU / International registration. We welcome applications from all areas of practice but an interest or experience in Social Care, Paediatrics or Community Practice would add to the variety of the current Occupational Therapy division.

Experience of contributing to designing and planning learning activities, developing effective learning environments and approaches to student/client support and guidance; experience in Occupational Therapy; and strong communication skills, both written and verbal are all essential for this post.

In addition, for ASER contracts, you will have a clear publication plan for submission to future Research Excellence Framework (REF) programmes and evidence of a research agenda, engagement in high-quality research activity and a developing research profile.

Please also note on your application which level contract you are applying for and note if you are applying ASE level, you will not need to submit a research statement or a three-year funding plan.

Part-time hours and job share arrangements will be considered.

At the University of Essex, internationalism and diversity is central to who we are and what we do. We are committed to being a cosmopolitan, internationally oriented university that is welcoming to staff and students from all countries, faiths and backgrounds, where you can find the world in one place.

To support this commitment we have our Global Forum, a staff-led network that promotes and celebrates the rich cultural diversity among Essex staff, and our Colchester campus based Faith Centre, which hosts regular services, meetings and events organised by our chaplains and faith representatives.
