Band 5 Physiotherapist

We have fantastic opportunities available for new or experienced talented Band 5 Physiotherapists to join CICC. We are a team of occupational therapists, physiotherapists, assistant practitioners and technical instructors who see people across the Wirral who are best treated in their own homes. The work is varied and interesting - no two days are ever the same. You will provide holistic assessments, work collaboratively with the multidisciplinary team and be able to follow up patients to enable them to reach their rehabilitation potential.

You will receive support from experienced senior therapists and team leaders, regular supervision, training and other development opportunities contributing to your CPD and career progression. You will be expected to monitor and support the work and development of therapy assistants and students on clinical placements, as well as contributing to the improvement of therapy services.

We can support newly qualified Physiotherapists or those returning to practice through our preceptorship programme and peer support network.
