An opportunity has arisen to join our Three Counties Hospice in Worcester as Physiotherapist on a permanent part-time basis.

What’s it like working here?
You’ll join a supportive, multi-disciplinary team delivering respite and end-of-life care to children and young people in their home or at the Three Counties hospice as well as provide support to their families. We tailor our care packages to meet each child’s clinical, emotional and spiritual needs and there’s time here to focus on clients – this really appeals to some people.

The hospice is purpose-built with individually decorated rooms, each overlooking our gardens. We try to make it as welcoming and friendly as possible – a home-from-home for children and their families.

About You
You will be an experienced physiotherapist able to provide physiotherapy assessment, treatment and advice for the children and young people with complex needs at Acorns. You will be expected to actively organise and participate in hydrotherapy pool sessions for the children and their families.

You should be qualified to degree level (or equivalent) in Physiotherapy and be HCPC registered. You will have previous experience of paediatric physiotherapy, in particular with children and young people with complex needs. Awareness of working with hydrotherapy pools is desirable.

In return
There’s so much scope at Acorns to learn specialist skills and we believe that personally, you’ll grow immeasurably. We pride ourselves on the development we offer – there’s a range of workshops and courses, both internally and externally led, to support your CPD.

We offer a competitive salary, 35 days’ holiday FTE, allowances for clothing and extra duties, and pension contributions; if you move from the NHS, you can keep your current pension.

To Apply
Please visit our website, www.acorns.org.uk/jobs, where you can download the job description for more information and apply.

Please note that we are unable to accept CVs on their own. Please complete an application in full and attach your CV for supplementary information.

You need to be eligible to work in the UK to be considered for these roles. Any successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced DBS check for children.

Closing date for applications: 5 pm Friday 16 August 2019
