Abbots Leigh, Bristol

Up to 37.5 hours per week (full or part time considered)

Salary: up to £37,500 per year (pro rata)

This job is available full-time or part-time. This is because we want the best people for our roles and we recognise that sometimes those people are not always available full-time. 

Freeways Hydrotherapy Pool are looking to recruit a qualified Physiotherapist (full time) or two part time Physiotherapists (Adult or Paediatric) across Monday to Thursday at our hydrotherapy pool and land clinic located in beautiful Leigh Woods just outside of Bristol.

Who are we looking for?

In this exciting and varied role you will be responsible for assessing and delivering treatments to a range of private Adult and Paediatric clients along with those who receive funding from the NHS and charitable organisations. You will also use your knowledge and expertise to provide advice and guidance to our Hydrotherapy Pool Assistants.

Significant experience working with Adults and/or Paediatric clients on land is essential for the role with additional experience of treating clients in a Hydrotherapy Pool being desirable.

Applicants should be qualified physiotherapists and will need to be registered with the HCPC and CSP.

How we will reward you:

  • 28 days (pro-rata) annual leave entitlement (including public holidays), increases up to 35 days (pro-rata) with length of service
  • Excellent induction and training
  • Opportunity to complete recognised qualifications in line with the role
  • Company sick pay

  • Life assurance cover of twice your annual salary (subject to rules of the scheme)
  • Family friendly/work-life balance policies
  • Free DBS check every 3 years
  • Occupational health provision
  • Free parking at our Leigh Court Hydrotherapy Pool
  • Employee Assistance Programme – 24 hour access to a counselling and legal helpline


Due to our location, a driving license and access to transport would be advantageous; however it is not essential for the role.


Who are we?

Freeways is a local charity that supports people with learning disabilities. We are a highly regarded provider of residential care and supported living services. We also run hydrotherapy and warm water sessions in our own hydrotherapy pool where a physiotherapy and rehabilitation team provide hydrotherapy assessments and treatment, advice on the best way forward, and carry out therapy treatment as required. Land based physiotherapy interventions are also provided for both individual clients and groups.

We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all backgrounds. This role is subject to an Enhanced DBS check with adults and children barred list.
