The post involves close working and peer support with the MSK Team Leads from Basingstoke and Winchester and requires cross site attendance on occasion.

About us

This post involves working closely with all MSK team members as well as the SMT for Therapies. It will require a flexible approach to working hours when situations require it but on the whole will remain a fixed working pattern.

Due to the direct supervisory and leadership role involved, it is expected that the majority of hours are worked on site alongside the team. Although some flexibility around home working will be considered, this is not expected to be a regular aspect of the working pattern.
