    Cirque du Soleil is much more than just a show.  At the center of Cirque's creative energy are talented people with a passion for challenging their own limits. Life at Cirque is about creating wonderment with colleagues of enlightening talent, and to do so at nothing less than the speed of light. Together we work hard, juggle priorities, sometimes shift trajectories, always have loads of fun and, above all, dare to reinvent ourselves, to reach for and to meet new challenges.

     

    As a Head Therapist for the Performance Medicine Department at Cirque du Soleil, you will be expected to deliver the highest quality of care to the performers while simultaneously supporting the needs of the daily operations required to invoke, evoke, and provoke the senses!  Strong leadership skills are essential to uphold the core values of the department, where we truly value compassionate, reflective, innovative, fun, and fearless people who add to our ensemble!

     

    In this pivotal role you will learn, lead, optimize, and deliver performance medicine department services while reporting operationally to the Artistic Director.  This is a post which is planned to start in Montreal, Canada around June 2018 and transfer to China in January 2019.  Applications close on Feb 15, 2018.
