ROLE DETAILS

THE ROLE

 

Our established therapies team at Noah’s Ark is expanding, and an exciting opportunity has arisen for a part-time Drama and Movement Therapist to join us (0.4 FTE). This is a rewarding role supporting babies, children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families, at any point in the child’s journey, from birth to End of Life and Post Death.

You will be joining our well established Multi-Disciplinary Care team providing effective individual or group Drama and Movement Therapy to children and their families in their own homes, in The Ark or at a place of choice, as well as supporting the assessment and provision of bereavement support.

 

ABOUT YOU

 

We are looking for an enthusiastic and creative professional to join our team. The appointed therapist will have previous experience in working with children with complex needs and, where possible, have experience in either mental health or bereavement services. An understanding of medical settings is desirable.

The therapist should have a good understanding of safeguarding legislation and practice and be confident in lone working and problem solving. Due to the nature of the work the therapist should have good time management skills and the ability to have sensitive conversations when they arise
