Role description

This is an exciting time at Newcastle United and we are looking for talented individuals to help us on our journey. To help us deliver on our ambitious plans we have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Physiotherapist to support our Academy.

Joining a progressive and friendly team, you will be a forward-thinking Physiotherapist with significant experience in a similar role and in design and implementation of Return to Play protocols.

The successful candidate will work closely with the Head of Academy Physiotherapy to focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and rehabilitation of all injuries for Academy players, focusing on all Academy age groups between the U9s and U21s. You will do this by delivering an expert assessment and diagnostic experience to ensure individualised and relevant treatment plans are in place providing high quality, effective clinical care through best clinical practice.

You will be responsible for accurate clinical record keeping ensuring compliance with all professional, clinical, and integrated governance standards whilst also participating in clinical audit and other quality assurance processes.

Maintaining a pro-active approach to personal and departmental CDP you will provide pitch-side physiotherapist cover for Academy matchdays, training sessions and tournaments (home and away) and accompany players to medical consultations as required.

You will have excellent communication and clinical skills and work in a naturally collaborative way by working closely with the multidisciplinary team and other player support departments.

Experience of working in a similar role, with children, is essential, as are a BSc in Physiotherapy, FA Level 5 ATMMiF (or willing to work towards), membership of CSP and the HCPC and an FA Safeguarding Certificate (or willing to work towards).

With a salary of circa £32,000, an employee bonus scheme (non-contractual) and a wide range of benefits this is an excellent opportunity to join our Newcastle United family.

Please note that this role will require some unsociable hours working including evenings and weekends as well as travel away.

Unfortunately, we do not currently possess a sponsorship licence so applicants must possess right to work in the UK at point of application.

Please note that should we receive a high volume of suitable candidates we will close this vacancy early so we would suggest applying as early as possible.
