UWE Bristol is a thriving, modern university, offering a wide range of highly respected courses and employment-enhancing opportunities.

We’re a well-established university, with over 27,000 students, 250,000 alumni and 3,000 staff. Students come to study with us from all over the UK, as well as from 140 different countries around the world, making this a diverse and interesting place to come and study.

Bristol itself is a hub of social and cultural activity. A place with a strong, creative and fiercely independent mindset. A city with a buzzing music scene, great restaurants and interesting business ventures. It’s not surprising Bristol is consistently named as one of the best places to live and work in the UK.

The Department of Allied Health Professions currently runs a full time HCPC validated/CSP accredited B.Sc.(Hons) Physiotherapy programme and a range of related undergraduate, postgraduate and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programmes.

The Department is seeking a suitably experienced physiotherapist who can demonstrate particular experience in cardo-respiratory physiotherapy. A strong understanding of cardio-respiratory anatomy, physiology, pathology, assessment and treatment techniques and clinical reasoning is essential. An ability to demonstrate previous university and/or practice based educational experience is also required.

Responsibilities will include teaching and marking, module leadership, an academic and personal tutor role, research support for undergraduate students, clinical visiting, and being part of the cardio-respiratory and physiotherapy team in curriculum development and quality monitoring. Input to the B.Sc. (Hons) Physiotherapy and CPD modules will be expected.

You will have sound experience in a range of cardio respiratory practice as well as experience of working within an interdisciplinary team. You will have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and a commitment to close team working. A Master’s degree would be an advantage; however applicants with evidence of study at post graduate level, university teaching and/or a research profile within Physiotherapy would be positively considered.

You will need to be registered with the HCPC as a physiotherapist.

Interviews are scheduled to take place on 3 April 2017.
