Current Vacancies

  • VA772 | Clinical Seating Engineer (Active Design Factory - Peripatetic)

    Apply Now

    Company: Active Design Limited | Closing date: Fri, 21 Jun 2024


    Active Design
    Role: Clinical Seating Engineer
    Benefits: Free on-site parking, Legal and General pension contributions, 25 days annual leave with increase to 28 days after 5 years continuous service, paid sick leave with continuous service, Employee Assistant programme

    Active Design is leading manufacturer of wheelchair special seating products and clinical seating services. The company has been involved in the design, development and manufacturer of postural management equipment for over 30 years. Our products are manufactured at our factory in Aston, Birmingham using a wide range of production techniques.


    What we are looking for:

    We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic Clinical Seating Engineer that will prescribe seating systems which are shaped individually to service users, most of whom will have complex needs, based on clinical data gathered at assessment and the response of the person to the supporting surface.  They will work in conjunction with the wheelchair service clinicians to develop optimised support for the individual.  

    Key Responsibilities:

    • Manipulating the material directly to the service user
    • Capturing a shape using vacuum consolidation bead bags
    • Manufacturing a bespoke tubular framework to support the cellular structure and interfacing this to wheelchair bases
    • Adapting/modifying equipment to meet specific needs
    • Creating bespoke solutions where off-the-shelf equipment cannot be obtained to meet the person’s needs
    • Handing over the completed system to the service user
    • Making further adjustments to the system over time to allow for growth or changing need.

    The role requires integration of clinical and technical knowledge with practical application, taking account of the service user’s functional needs, which often conflict with their postural requirements, and the fact that people can present differently on different days and that factors beyond their control have an influence on their ability to tolerate/respond to a seating system.

    Whilst responsibility for the individual’s episode of care lies with the local clinician, the post holder is responsible for ensuring that the needs of the individual are met in an effective and safe manner.  As an autonomous practitioner you will:

    1. Be managed, rather than supervised; results/outcomes are assessed at agreed intervals through clinical supervision; this will be guided by precedent and policy
    2. Provide high quality, service user focused assessment and prescription of wheelchair seating, also including manual wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs and buggies
    3. Work within professional and regulatory standards, and clinical/technical guidelines, promoting best practice and undertaking all aspects of clinical and technical duties
    4. Provide specialist clinical and technical advice to other members of the team and contribute to the development of clinical and technical services
    5. Possess expertise within the specialism of wheelchair services, underpinned by developed clinical and technical theoretical knowledge and experience
    6. Regularly perform development work in relation to service user specific clinical/technical requirements
    7. Plan and deliver training sessions for health and social care professionals

    The job holder will work in a variety of settings including clinics, community centres, and service users’ homes according to service requirements.  In addition, they will participate in clinical governance activity, including CPD and developing and implementing quality improvements within the service.

    We are looking for someone to work 40 hours per week Monday to Thursday between 8am to 5pm with a half hour unpaid lunch break and 2 x 15-minute breaks (paid) and Fridays 7am – 1pm. This role can be home based but with the understanding that requirement to attend clinics around the South of England and be out in the community plays a big part of the role and therefore you must also hold a valid UK driving license with no more then 6 points on.

    For an informal discussion about this role, please contact the Recruitment team at careers@ajmhealthcare.org. To be considered for this role, please click apply now to complete our application form. No stand-alone CVs will be accepted.

    Closing Date: 21st June 2024

    This position is working in a regulated environment and will therefore be subject to a DBS disclosure check.  Cost will be covered by the Company.
