Vacancy details

We are looking for an experienced physiotherapist with specialist neuro-respiratory skills to join our enthusiastic, dynamic, interdisciplinary team. The post is for 6 months on a fixed term/secondment contract, working full time hours of 37.5 hours per week.


The Colman Centre for Specialist Rehabilitation is in Norwich and provides services for the East of England offering neuro-rehabilitation to adults with complex disability. Our vision is to further develop as a Centre of Excellence, leading the field in clinical practice, research and education.


The post holder will be expected to manage a caseload of complex patients across in-patients and out-reach, including those with disorders of consciousness, tracheostomy patients, and complex physical disability. Additionally there will be an expectation to in-reach into the acute services to support management of complex patients prior to admission for specialist rehabilitation.


The post holder will be expected to work closely with the multidisciplinary team to provide rehabilitation for patients accessing the service.


Apply now to join an organisation that has been awarded an ‘Outstanding’ rating by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the highest possible rating and the first stand-alone NHS community trust in the country to be awarded the title.

Immigration Status -Norfolk Community Health & Care NHS Trust is a diverse employer and welcomes all job applications. However, potential applicants should note that although the Trust is registered with the Home Office as a sponsor organisation for migrant workers, this is only against Tier 2 (General) visas. If you are a migrant worker from outside of the European Economic Area and do not already hold a self-gained right to work, we recommend you check the Home Office eligibility requirements before making an application.

Disclosure and Barring Service Check

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly known as CRB) to check for any previous criminal convictions.


Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. The UK Visas and Immigration department requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UK Visas and Immigration website.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement.
