Job Description

Strong Foundations for Your Physiotherapy Career – We Have the Right Opportunities for You.

We are delighted to announce various Band 5 Physiotherapist opportunities we have to start off your physiotherapy career. We are looking for people who are passionate about what they do, people who are innovative and creative.

We believe that a strong foundation is crucial to your development and your physiotherapy career. This is why we offer six month rotations for Band 5 Physiotherapists in a variety of specialties including Orthopaedics, Musculoskeletal outpatients, Surgery/ITU/HDU, Stroke and Medical/Care of the elderly.

We take pleasure in developing and nurturing our staff through their career. In each rotation, you will be working closely with very experienced Band 6 and 7 Physiotherapists who will nurture and support you. Through day to day support, clinical supervision and annual appraisals we will ensure that you get the level of support that is critical to your development.

We are committed to developing your core physiotherapy skills and contributing to the success of your career. We have numerous training opportunities on offer. As one of our valued Band 5 physiotherapists, you will have the privilege of attending the following:

  • Monthly Band 5s in-service training sessions covering a comprehensive list of subjects and run by our experienced Bands 6s and 7s

  • Monthly local ITU training run by our very experienced Surgery/ITU/HDU Team Lead and her experienced Band 6s

  • Musculoskeletal Trust wide training days run by experienced Musculoskeletal Band 7s and 6s

  • Trust wide on-call competency training specifically designed to develop and support your competence in respiratory on-calls and,

  • Courses run by nationally accredited tutors.

    Apart from face-to-face training, we also understand the value of you taking time to reflect on your practice and development. This is why we offer protected CPD time to our valued Band 5 Physiotherapist on a monthly basis.

    As part of your later development, you will have the opportunity to attend accredited clinical educators’ training. We pride ourselves in contributing to the development of future physiotherapists and we regularly offer placements for students from the University of Nottingham and Sheffield Hallam University. There will be plenty of room for you to develop student placement education skills.

    You will have the opportunity to take on roles such as safeguarding champion, infection prevention and control representative, CSP steward or health and safety representative. This will afford you unique experiences and development in other spheres of practice.

    The Band 5 Physiotherapist opportunities we have on offer are full time posts but we are willing to make them flexible to accommodate part-time working or job sharing. All core rotations will be based at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston. There is a possibility of working at our peripheral outpatients site at Spalding Community Hospital when you rotate to Musculoskeletal outpatients. You will be required to participate in 7-day working across various clinical areas. We have on-site accommodation for staff should you require it.
