Job Description

Do you have an enthusiasm for sports development and elite sport? Do you have excellent communication skills with the ability to build strong working relationships and networks? Do you have experience of working independently, and as part of a wider team? 

The University of Leeds has a new strategy for sport and physical activity which articulates our aim of becoming the most physically active university in the UK. Through this strategy we are committed to ensuring we provide opportunities for our students, staff and members of the local community to improve their health and wellbeing, develop their skills and maximise their sporting potential.

In order to support our strategic aims, the University of Leeds is seeking to appoint a full-time Senior Physiotherapist with a dual role servicing student-athletes (TASS athletes, sport scholars and University of Leeds sports club members), and working with the Occupational Health Service. The post will be split two days per week servicing staff through the Occupational Health and three days servicing elite athletes and student sports clubs. 

This post offers an exciting opportunity for an experienced physiotherapist who can demonstrate the highest standards of personal, professional and managerial attributes. The post requires the ability to work independently, leading the Physiotherapy service for the University; as part of the wider multi-disciplinary team within Sport and Physical Activity, and with key partners including the University’s Occupational Health Service and TASS. 

This is a full-time role working 35 hours each week. There may be an occasional requirement to work evenings and weekends.

An Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) is required for this position.
