Vacancy details

Are you a qualified physiotherapist seeking a fresh challenge? Do you want to use your knowledge, skills and experience to shape the development of physiotherapy and the profession?

If so, then the opportunity to join our team as a Professional Adviser for the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) could be perfect for you.  £43,035 (Inclusive of homeworker’s allowance)  Full time Home-based

The CSP is the trade union, professional and educational organisation for the UK’s 58,000 chartered physiotherapists, support workers and students. 

This is exciting role will enable you to use your professional knowledge, skills and experience to lead the profession nationally on all aspects of practice and service delivery. You will facilitate and empower members to improve and 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 national policy and projects. In collaboration with internal and external stakeholders, you will play an active role in identifying and influencing workforce development policy across the UK, with a particular focus on physiotherapy support worker development.

You will support and facilitate CSP member engagement with changes in health and social care with an emphasis on demonstrating quality, value and productivity through the development and implementation of new resources, publications and related member engagement activities.

The CSP aims to establish a network of regional teams across the UK to support members wherever they live, work or study. So, alongside your national role, you will join a regional multidisciplinary team with CSP colleagues from policy, communications and the trade union to develop robust networks and engage members.This role therefore requires a high level of interdisciplinary communication to enable members to understand, evidence and articulate their value and impact to influence local decision-making. This role has responsibility for London so you will be based in, or willing to travel to this region.

The Society provides a supportive culture for your own learning, with opportunities for you to stretch yourself and test out different ways of working – you will be part of a team of professional advisers who provide a supportive peer environment through which to work. There are further opportunities to work as part of other cross-organisational projects, 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. 

So, if you are looking for a rewarding and challenging role, enjoy team and matrix working, and seeing the difference your input makes we’d like to hear from you.
