Vacancy details

Professional Adviser - London £42,446.40 (£53,058 FTE) per annum; Part time, 28 hours per week. Fixed term maternity cover contract for 12 months. Home based role (subject to meeting homeworking assessment requirements, which includes a minimum broadband speed of 18Mbps and a dedicated space to work from).

Are you a registered physiotherapist seeking a fresh challenge? Are you interested in leadership and looking for your next career opportunity? Do you want to use your knowledge, skills and experience to support other physiotherapists, students and support workers? Would you like to help shape the future of the profession?

As a Professional Adviser for the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP), you can achieve this and more.

Each Professional Adviser takes responsibility for one geographical region, and the region currently available is London. We welcome applications outside the region if you are willing to travel to meet the requirements of the role and engage in member-facing activity.

This is a totally different role where you will use your professional knowledge, skills and experience, working with the physiotherapy workforce and other stakeholders across the UK to improve and transform practice and service delivery. You will work with colleagues across the CSP to develop resources and approaches that will facilitate and empower members to demonstrate the impact and value of physiotherapy to the populations they serve.

This role has both national and regional responsibilities. You will play a key role in the progression and delivery of innovative national projects and lead specific areas of work related to our strategic objectives. In collaboration with national stakeholders, you will play an active role in identifying and influencing developing policy across the UK, looking for opportunities to enhance service provision and improve patient outcomes and experience through better provision of physiotherapy. This is an exciting time to join the CSP as we develop our new five-year strategy. You will be involved in a range of work areas that may include, for example, the creation of a new physiotherapy career framework, optimising the professions' contribution to population health or supporting our associate workforce.

The CSP has a network of regional teams across the UK to support our members wherever they live, work or study. So, alongside a national role, you will join a regional multi-disciplinary team with CSP colleagues from policy, communications and the trade union to develop robust networks and engage members. This role therefore requires excellent communication, influencing and networking skills to enable members to understand, evidence and articulate the value and impact of physiotherapy to influence local decision-making.

It doesn’t stop there. You will be part of a team of professional advisers who provide peer support and a professional advice service to CSP members. There are numerous development opportunities to work as part of other corporate teams, giving you access to a range of experiences such as lobbying government, influencing press and media coverage and working with local physiotherapy services to shape commissioning strategies and decisions.

The CSP provides a supportive culture for your own learning, with opportunities for you to stretch yourself and test out different ways of working. The CSP is committed to promoting equity, inclusion and belonging within both the CSP and the profession more widely. It is important that our professional advisers represent the diversity of our members and the populations we serve.

If you are looking for an exceptionally rewarding and challenging role, would enjoy working in a team environment and seeing the difference your input makes to the profession across the UK, this role is for you.

We would particularly welcome applications from individuals who have experience in workforce developments across advanced practice and/or supporting internationally trained physiotherapists.
