This is an exciting opportunity to join a full time professional club currently ranked as one of the top 24 clubs in England. The head physiotherapist role is an integral part of our support team, working at our high-class training facilities at the Trailfinders Sports Club, Ealing, West London.
You will organise and structure the clubs physiotherapy department and work within a multi-discipline performance team. You will lead the assessment and rehabilitation of the club players using a multidiscipline approach at all times; you will fully structure, prescribe and record the clubs players return from injury. You, therefore, must have excellent communication skills and leadership qualities including an eye for detail whilst also being a meticulous planner. Your philosophy must centre around a holistic approach and not solely in that of manual therapy, in which a knowledge of dynamic systems theory and current best practice within physical performance is desired.
You will have an active involvement in the structure and content of other performance team initiatives such as daily screening, injury prevention, injury monitoring and prehabilitation. This will require extensive knowledge of relevant literature, current best practice, and excellent critical analysis skills.
An education to degree level in physiotherapy including HCPC registration and RFU ICIS qualification is essential, although postgraduate education in other relevant fields may be advantageous (Sports Medicine/S&C). You will have a successful record and experience of working within a professional sports team and effectively running a physiotherapy department. This will include the management and running of an internship programme and working with local universities providing students placements.
