A careers pack distributed to 184 occupational therapy managers in and around London contained a questionnaire which gathered information about their role in promoting occupational therapy as a career. Twenty-six managers responded (14.1%) and considered that the College of Occupational Therapists had the principal responsibility for promoting the profession. Three-quarters considered that the careers pack was fairly effective and two-thirds were willing to use it to promote the profession.

Although pleased to have received the pack, the managers had more negative than positive comments about it. Managers may not appreciate their influential position in recruitment to the profession and other stakeholders should collaborate to support them in their pivotal role.
