We are looking to appoint a highly skilled and motivated Grade D (Band 6 equivalent) physiotherapist to join our dynamic therapy team.
The successful applicant should have a special interest in working with young adults with complex learning disabilities/ASD (most of whom are wheelchair users requiring postural management) in a secondary school/college environment. Experience of working with this client group in a community setting is desirable but applicants with other relevant experience will be considered. You should be able to demonstrate excellent assessment, observation and verbal and written communication skills.
We work closely with a large multidisciplinary team; therapists and education staff, to ensure we deliver a high quality therapy service to our students. We provide aquatic and rebound therapy.
We can offer you:
- An excellent opportunity to work with young adults with a diverse range of conditions and presentations including profound and multiple learning disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorder under the guidance of a Specialist and Lead Physiotherapist, and supported by two physiotherapy assistants
- The benefit of working closely with a supportive, highly specialist, on-site, multi-disciplinary team including occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, allied therapies, nursing, psychology and education staff
- The chance to deepen your understanding of working in an educational setting. You will be able to work with students over the length of their stay at college (mostly 3 years) and make a real impact on their learning, motor and functional skills development and wellbeing over this time and for their future
- Career training and development in this specialist field
Livability is committed to the Continuing Professional Development of its staff. We also have a well-developed supervision structure and a variety of training opportunities, with an annual Personal Development Review which will be monitored throughout the year.
Livability positively welcomes applications from all sections of the community in which we work.
