About the role and our team
We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated Band 7 Physiotherapist to join our supportive team and help make a positive difference in the community.
You will be responsible for treating a caseload of paediatric patients with a variety of conditions, such as complex conditions, developmental, respiratory and orthopaedics. You will ideally have a special interest in early years or neonatal care.
Assessment and treatment will occur in a variety of settings, including nurseries, schools, community settings, Children’s Ward, Neonatal Care and patients’ homes. There is also the opportunity to take an active role in the on-call system at Noble’s Hospital, providing out of hours and emergency physiotherapy treatment.
Using your clinical knowledge and experience, you will make a positive contribution to service development and work to maximise the performance of the Children’s therapy team.
If you’re a dynamic, forward-thinking specialist who wishes to join an experienced, integrated team of therapists treating paediatric patients in both community and acute settings, then this could be the role for you.
What can this role offer me?
- By joining us, you’ll be stepping away from NHS pressures and demands, as the Island’s healthcare system is similar but separate to the UK NHS.
- Developing our team to be the best they can be is important to us and we actively support your own personal career goals, aspirations and development. This includes the use of our Learning, Education and Development Centre and the fantastic range of fully funded courses we support.
- You will enjoy competitive annual leave entitlement.
- Free car parking at Noble’s Hospital and the Community Health Centre.
