Valley Leisure Ltd, an independent Charitable Trust, is looking to recruit an enthusiastic, motivated and experienced Physiotherapist on a part-time basis to pioneer a new and innovative community based power assisted exercise facility and service in Andover, Hampshire.
The ‘I Can’ Therapy Centre is a brand new facility which aims to provide an opportunity for local people to move more and feel better with a view to supporting them to live as independently as possible, as well as possible for as long as possible.
You will be at the forefront of ensuring that a credible and quality assured rehabilitative exercise therapy service is provided for the benefit of all who attend enabling clients to achieve and maintain independence and a good quality of life.
Working independently you will have clinical responsibility for the delivery of a physiotherapy-led service, providing functional assessments and supervised exercise for clients who have disabilities or health problems that can be expected to improve, be maintained or be prevented from deteriorating through use of the facilities provided.
With confident communication skills you will have the ability to liaise effectively and efficiently with a wide range of people including clients, colleagues, volunteers, GP’s, Consultant’s and other health care professionals.
A Centre Coordinator and small team of volunteer activity buddies will support you in your role and the day-to-day smooth running of the facility and service and who will additionally ensure that clients are encouraged and mentored for the duration of their exercise programme and use of the facility.
You will provide ongoing assistance to the team and share your clinical and exercise knowledge and skills with colleagues, volunteers and carers to support continuous development amongst both staff and customers.
