@OTalk_ @93SophieC @GillyGorry #otalk - and that bit!
Sophie Cresswell @93SophieC
Let’s get started! Question 1: what are the main factors influencing/ that did influence your first post as a newly qualified? #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Excellent question.
Emily Suffield @emilysuffield
@93SophieC I went for a mixed rotation as it offered a wide range of experiences and a good support structure #otalk
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
It was the same area as I went into OT to work in. Working with people with learning disabilities was what I was doing as a volunteer . #otalk
Gilly- does- Doing @GillyGorry
@93SophieC I want to feel like a "real OT" actually think I was a bit of a role snob and made many assumptions. I mostly wanted a challenge and a place to have a voice. #otalk. Switching between accounts. @OTalk_
Rachel Johnson OT Seashell Trust @RJOTSeashell
@93SophieC It was quite a long time ago for me😱 but I chose an area I had done a practice placement in as I felt that would help my confidence. #OTalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@93SophieC I knew from my placements (particularly my final placement in a CAMHS clinic) that I wanted to work in mental health so that was a big part of my decision #OTalk
Katie Phipps @OTKatieP
@93SophieC I felt as though I needed to experience a range of settings so went for a rotation - it's so hard to know where you want to be! It's been challenging but has really helped me build my core OT skills and resilience #OTalk
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
It was 35 years ago for me, and I still think it was the right choice as I still work in that area 😊#otalk
JasminOT @JasminLaffy
@93SophieC I went with private practice that could offer me a range of clients with good support. Also I loved community OT in my placements #otalk
💚🇯🇲 Sherlyn 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@93SophieC #otalk I went with my gut! I had applied for an NHS posts & Social services post, got interviews. I hate interviews. I was offered both post. Told lady at NHS my situation & she said can you make a decision I have other people to call. #shockhorror!! Ok hello social services 👋🏾
Colleen Beck @TheOTtoolbox
My first position was in 2000 and jobs were hard to find in my location at that time. I did land a position that offered a well-rounded experience in a variety of settings. It turned out to be a wonderful first job! #OTtalk
Vanessa Phillips @VanessajpOT
@93SophieC I think my placements and previous work experience massively influenced my first post and I think the variety of settings in the rotation helped too! #otalk

Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@93SophieC @GillyGorry @OTalk_ I definitely relate to wanting a challenge - I knew when I read the description of my current role that it would be a bit more responsibility than I might have elsewhere since I would be working as the only OT on the team but I liked the idea of aiming high 😊#OTalk
Hayley OT @hayleyot1
@93SophieC Always knew I wanted to work in a mental health setting, previous degree in psychology #OTalk
Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@93SophieC I knew when I took on this first post that it was not an area I wanted to stay in but I was able to get 9 months post qualifying experience before getting my dream job (at the time) in mental health. It easier to get a job once you got your foot in the door! #OTalk
Sophie Cresswell @93SophieC
@OTEllenUK Yes the type of role as well at the population we want to work with is a big decision that placement can give us insight into #OTalk
Ben Kirkwood @OT_BenK
@93SophieC I think so as I found placements you really did get to see OT in action compared to uni theory based work. It also allowed me to learn about diffrent models of practice and ways of working! #OTalk
Sophie Cresswell @93SophieC
@sherlynmelody What a great approach, anywhere you go with enthusiasm will always be a positive learning experience ! #OTalk
Jack McKnight @JackMcK50281163
@93SophieC I have only applied for one the things that are influencing me are an area of practice I'm interested in or rotation to see what I like. Also I'm a mature student with a family who have been through alot during my qualifying process so geographical area is a factor. #OTalk
Enable Me Solutions- OT & Case Management Services @CarolineSturdy
@93SophieC #OTalk all my placements were NHS so naturally I felt like I should apply for a rotational post. 6 yrs later moved to housing & I've been in the community every since. When I trained there weren't many SS placements so I never experienced it as a student. Is that the same now?
latísh @tis7ha
@OTEllenUK @93SophieC Placement gave me an insight, I think I always knew I wanted to work in the hospital environment. Knowing rotations were an option to build on skill set & gain experience in various areas definitely sold it for me starting out as a NQ🙌🏼 #OTalk
Katie Phipps @OTKatieP
@93SophieC @OTEllenUK I think my placements influenced me in the other way - I didn't feel I knew enough about working in mental health from my 1 placement in a really specialist setting so I wanted a chance to explore that :) #OTalk
Chloe Dickson @ChloeDicksonOT
@93SophieC My first post was influenced by my final placement as a student. Loved my time in paediatrics and was desperate to go back. Was so lucky to get my job in my final placement #otalk
💚🇯🇲 Sherlyn 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@93SophieC #otalk I found that to be the case with all my placements. I was enthusiastic coz I really wanted to be the best OT 😆 It was a career change for me and my dream job.
latísh @tis7ha
@93SophieC I went to visit the trust & was really impressed by what the staff were saying & pilots they were carrying out. I also really wanted to complete a preceptorship programme to help transition/bridge the gap! #OTalk
Sophie Cresswell @93SophieC
Question 2 coming up.... What are the possible benefits and challenges of entering a static, third sector post as a newly qualified practitioner ? I definitely had some FOMO (fear of missing out) at first ! #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Another good question. #otalk
Hannah Spencer @hspenceruk
@sherlynmelody @93SophieC Sounds familiar here too - I can't help but enjoy all learning experiences, placement and uni based 😀 open minded for 1st role come Autumn too #OTalk

@GillyGorry @93SophieC @OTalk_ I'm constantly learning, I'll put it that way 😁 #OTalk

@93SophieC There can be challenges around supervision. Self monitoring own competence. But there are many benefits to exploring new ways of doing things a d learning to stand on your own two feet #otalk

Challenges - lone working, no OT team benefits -autonomy, making a difference, making your own decisions #otalk

Emily Suffield @emilysuffield
@93SophieC It could be challenging if you were the only OT, and might not be as much support through preceptorship etc. but would be a really good way to challenge yourself, practice autonomously and build confidence! #OTalk

@93SophieC If I am honest I went into the first available role in my local hospital - adult elderly care - despite knowing I wanted a paediatric role. At the time it was very rare to get in as a band 5 so gained experience until the dream role came up!! #OTalk

Susan Griffiths @SusanGriffiths5
@93SophieC More isolated with less peer support; often thrown in the deep end and are expected to hit the floor running. You either drown or you thrive on the challenge and develop your OT skills and experience much quicker #OTalk

#OTalk
Ben Kirkwood @OT_BenK
@93SophieC I feel for me going in to a static post works as I take a long time to settle and process things and I feel I can grow my confidence and specialise in an area I’m interested in. Compared to doing a rotation which I don’t think I’d settle or feel as confident as I am now #OTalk

Good thread for us final year pre-reg #StudentOT lot as we begin to ponder our potential next steps. Interesting to read what influenced others' first qualified posts #OTalk @DerbyOTsociety @SPOTeurope
Ben Kirkwood @OT_BenK
@93SophieC Yet some times I feel doing a rotation gives you more experience in all areas of OT and and different practices and way of working 🤔 #OTalk
Ellie OT for Kids @EllieOTforKids
@93SophieC I found not working in a traditional OT role I worried about missing out of core OT skills and lack of repel indemnity as an OT. But I was amazing for my confidence and being able talk about what OT is #OTalk
JasminOT @JasminLaffy
@93SophieC So far in loving it! So much learning and growth in a short amount of time #otalk
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
Me too #OTalk
Katie Phipps @OTKatieP
@93SophieC Can't answer from experience but I know for me it felt a daunting prospect and I wanted the support and structure of an established preceptorship programme. I think it can be a great opportunity work autonomously and build your professional confidence though! #OTalk
Nicky Phillips @NickyP_OT
@93SophieC I dont speak from experience as I'm in the NHS, but there's so much red tape here... I imagine 3rd sector jobs have a bit less of this? #Otalk
Molly Harris @mollharrisOT
@93SophieC I always knew I wanted to work in Paediateics, I had a placement within my current team and when a B5 position came up I knew straight away I wanted it! Knowing the team and service model was definitely a motivator #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Not necessarily. #otalk

Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@SusanGriffiths5 @93SophieC That's a perfect description of my current position - I think I've learned a lot more in a short period of time than I might have otherwise (and developed a stronger professional identity) but being thrown in the deep end has been stressful occasionally 😅#OTalk
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
Yes you have to create your own boundaries and policies #otalk
Katie Phipps @OTKatieP
@emilysuffield @OT_BenK @93SophieC Definitely agree! While I think in some ways that's good for building that confidence it can be so hard to keep starting again as soon as you've found your feet! #OTalk
Lucy Griffiths @LGOTSeashell

Ellie OT for Kids @EllieOTforKids
@VanessajpOT @93SophieC My first two jobs were not in the NHS so I am very interested in trying the Nhs to see the difference #OTalk

You have probably covered most things though #otalk
Poppy Goodall @poppy_goodall
@93SophieC I think the benefits would be being able to set up an OT service working alongside service users and gaining lots of confidence when clinical reasoning ! #OTalk
Bethany Marshall @BethjmOT
@93SophieC I originally was looking at rotation posts in a hospital setting. But a community band 5 post came up.. from my community placement I loved assessing people in their home environment. Now my post is part of a rotation so worked out really well to have time in each setting #OTalk
Carolina Cordero 🌈 @colourful_ot
@OT_BenK @93SophieC That was my thinking as well, especially in some areas of mental health where it can take months to get to a point where you have a good enough relationship with someone to really be helpful to them #OTalk
Margaret Spencer @margaretOT360
Yes I would hate that #otalk
JasminOT @JasminLaffy
@EllieOTforKids @93SophieC Yes I feel this as well. It seems like people strive for the rotational positions of of uni. I wanted a steady position I could gain solid experience in. But I questioned if I was missing out several times #otalk

Ellie OT for Kids @EllieOTforKids
@margaretOT360 For me my role emerging placement followed by the OT leadership and innovation modules at uni made me feel like writing a service plan and designing my own job could be done. #OTalk

@BethjmOT @93SophieC I see @debbieduckie has been part of #OTalk on this topic, whether third or private sector there are similar challenges if not part of a large NHS or local authority structure. Creative opportunities avail and I’d suggest there’s nothing static, more fast paced and innovative!
James Lampert @uk_james
@tis7ha @93SophieC A good OT supervisor will help you to challenge yourself and if you’re drawn to those kinds of roles then you’ll probably be the person to seek out and create your own #OTalk

@kaleidoscopier @93SophieC There are plenty of ways of becoming parts of OT networks and I shouldn’t worry either about being part of the herd. There’s plenty of ways too of maintaining professional standards no matter who employs you or if you’re working as an independent practitioner #otalk
