Vacancy details

A physiotherapy role like no other….

Are you a qualified physiotherapist seeking a fresh challenge? Do you want to use your knowledge, skills and experience to influence development of the profession and enhance your own career aspirations? Do you have knowledge of physiotherapy practice and education and the Health and social care system in Wales?

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

This is a totally different role where you will use your professional knowledge, skills and experience, working with physiotherapists across the UK to improve and transform physiotherapy practice and education. You will work within the workforce and education team to influence physiotherapy education and workforce development and collaborate 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 national and regional responsibilities in Wales and the wider UK. You will play a key role in the progression and delivery of leading edge national projects. You will lead specific areas of work, related to our strategic objectives that will include education and workforce development, mobilisation of First Contact Physiotherapy roles and promotion of community rehabilitation. In collaboration with national stakeholders, you will play an active role in identifying and influencing developing policy across Wales and the UK, looking for opportunities to enhance service provision and improve patient outcomes and experience through better provision of physiotherapy.

The CSP has established a network of national and regional teams across the UK to support members wherever they live, work or study. So, alongside a national role, you will work with the other CSP national and regional multi-disciplinary teams 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.

This role has responsibility for Wales so you will be based in, or within easy travelling distance of Wales

It doesn’t stop there. You will be part of a team of professional advisers who provide peer support and 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.

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 Wales and the wider UK, this role is for you.

Our Values

At the CSP our goal is to create a culture which is characterised by innovation, respect, encouragement, passion and teamwork. We all strive for continuous improvement and to be the best at everything we do. We aspire to work in a way that embodies our values of learning, courage, inclusive and integrity. Our shared values are part of our organisational DNA and reflect the expectations we have of ourselves and others. They guide what we do and how we do it to have the greatest impact for our members.
