Vacancy details

A physiotherapy role like no other!

Are you a registered physiotherapist seeking a fresh challenge? Are you a team leader looking for your next career opportunity? Do you want to use your knowledge, skills and experience to influence development of the profession and enhance your own career aspirations?

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

This is a unique role where you will use your professional knowledge, skills and experience, working with physiotherapists across the UK to improve and transform practice and service delivery. This role has both national and regional responsibilities. You will play a key role in the progression and delivery of leading edge 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 policy development across the UK, enhancing physiotherapy service provision and improving patient outcomes and experiences.

The CSP has a network of regional teams across the UK to support 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 their value and impact to influence local decision-making.

The South East Coast and South West regions are currently vacant. Ideally you will be based in, or within easy travelling distance of, one of these two regions (please indicate your preference within the application)

It doesn’t stop there. You will be part of a team of professional advisers who provide peer support and there are numerous opportunities to develop your clinical, leadership, research and education knowledge and skills. You will 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. We therefore welcome applications from individuals from all backgrounds including those from black, minority and ethnic groups.

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.
