CATTS Ireland is recruiting for an Occupational Therapist Position (OT) within the Independent Practice setting.

This role will involve working full time as an associate therapist in Dublin and Portlaoise/Abbeyleix. The ideal candidate can be based in, or near any of these locations.

Job Responsibilities:
Working in partnership with the rest of the team, you will be responsible for the delivery of first class Occupational Therapy services to paediatric and adult clients.

Our main area of practice is paediatrics and we also do work in adult ID. Sometimes housing adaptation grant assessments are done, or occasional seating assessments.  CATTS’ main base is our HQ in Clondalkin, Dublin. We sometimes have requests for OT’s to work in a preschool or school for a morning, or sometimes at a satellite clinic.

Currently the workload for this opportunity is at least one day per week in Dublin, and two days per week at our clinics in the Portlaoise/Abbeyleix area.

What to expect:
Our therapists have flexibility around how and when they work and can work from home to do admin if they wish.

adminA professional approach to work, and an ability to work on your own initiative is key to success in this role.

With this flexibility, our team members can adhere to the 70%/30%  – Client/Admin approach.  This allows you to ensure everything that should be done, is done, consistently. It also allows space to further your own CPD and grow as a clinician.


What you need:
Firstly, a recognised qualification in Occupational Therapy is essential. Experience working as an Occupational Therapist is desirable, but not essential as we provide a robust Supervision programme delivered by a Senior OT.

A car and a full driving licence is also essential. Garda vetting is required for this role as the candidate will work with paediatrics and vulnerable populations. If you are successful, CATTS will apply for this on your behalf.

This is a self-employed opportunity. Successful candidates should be aware that they will be responsible for making their own Tax returns to the Revenue Commissioner. We will be able to recommend accounting professionals to you who can assist.
