Band 6
Contract Type
Full Time
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 6 Specialist Physiotherapist to work in our lively and friendly teams based in the multi-cultural city of Bradford. We are looking for skilled, enthusiastic, and passionate clinicians to join our fantastic Bradford City and North, and our South and West, Community Mental Health Teams for Older People. Covering a wide area of our District, we enjoy working within one of the most diverse and culturally rich populations in England. We are always looking for new and innovative ways of delivering care to those with protected characteristics.

Working with our older population is a genuine privilege. It provides many valuable and unique experiences to affect the overall quality of life for a population that can be predisposed to comorbidities, reducing physical health, reducing mobility, and isolation. Providing care in these situations can be uniquely rewarding.

As a Specialist Physiotherapist, you will not only be supporting clients through what can often be the most challenging of times, but equally helping them to become the best version of themselves. Having an open mind and a flexible approach to care is key. This helps to establish the best possible ways to care for your clients within a recovery-focussed mindset, ensuring that you never lose the motivation that change is achievable for all. All care that you deliver will be in line with current care pathway frameworks and national guidelines.

Main duties of the job

You should be caring, flexible, and creative. Able to thrive under pressure, you will know how to connect with people at all levels. Your driving passion will be to help others live as independently as possible.

You will be committed to the delivery of high-quality service, working both independently and as part of an established, innovative team. You will hold a caseload and focus on the delivery of interventions that support recovery.

As a band 6 clinician you will be expected to act as a role model and resource for our junior staff and students. You will also have opportunity to be involved in service delivery improvements and innovations.

You will be offered regular supervision and support.

Working within our multidisciplinary team, you will enjoy being part of an organisation that relies upon the professionalism, insight, expertise, and passion of its staff to inspire individual recovery for the people we work with, whilst also nurturing, developing, and encouraging our staff to achieve their career aspirations.

Job description

Job responsibilities

Successful applicants will be able to demonstrate a high level of commitment, motivation, reliability, and knowledge of working with people with severe and enduring mental health. You will need to demonstrate clinically effective care management skills and interventions and will have a good awareness of current health and social care issues which affect, or influence, our community. You will have excellent time management skills and, due to the community element of this role, hold a full and valid driving licence.

This is truly an exhilarating time to join our team. As we embark upon an exciting and innovative transformation project, you will not only be an important part of our new journey, but equally will contribute heavily towards it.
