     Description:

    Bodybalance Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Clinic is looking for great sports physios to join our team as we expand and add further clinics to our existing 3 clinics in North West London and Hertfordshire.

    Our focus is on providing highest quality, professional physiotherapy care which is valued, trusted and respected by our colleagues, clients and referrers. We are motivated by helping our patients achieve the best possible outcomes. We work together as a team in a busy, fun environment.

    Our clinics are located inside great gym settings with fantastic facilities. We generally see a mix of sports injuries, MSK and post-op rehabilitation across all ages. Our patients are typically motivated, active and keen to get better.

    We are seeking enthusiastic, dynamic and motivated Sports & MSK physiotherapists to join our team of physiotherapists, Pilates teachers, massage therapists and admin support. We want someone who is interesting and who has great clinical skills and knowledge. You'll need to have enough experience to be able to confidently meet the expectations of your patients. You'll need to be able to think independently and show initiative, but also to be able to know when it is right to ask for some help. Most of our patients are self-paying or have private medical insurance; they expect great physiotherapy and we want to offer them the very best care and attention. We want someone who wants to do well personally and who wants to be part of our team environment.

    We are looking for experienced physiotherapists for full time, employed roles (part time will be considered if available for evenings and/or weekends).

Applicants must be HCPC registered and a member of the CSP, and we need at least 3 years of MSK experience. Private practice experience will be a big plus but is not necessary. Experience of working in sport is also an advantage, but that isn't totally necessary either. But eligibility to work in the UK is definitely required. Successful applicants will be required to undergo an Enhanced DBS before offers are finalised.

    Our interview process usually involves a face to face meeting where we discuss you and your experience, followed by an assessment of your clinical skills in a practical situation.
