Manchester Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre

We are looking for two enthusiastic and motivated physiotherapists with a proven background in cystic fibrosis and a commitment to managing and developing the existing service to adult patients with cystic fibrosis.

This is an exciting opportunity for physiotherapists with a commitment to this patient group to join our well established and experienced physiotherapy and wider multidisciplinary team. You will work closely with the other specialist clinicians to lead the physiotherapy team in providing an effective, high quality service. The clinical caseload will include delivery of highly complex care to patients at home, within the outpatient clinics and on the ward.

The Manchester Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre currently cares for 450 adults in the North West and is part of the North West Lung Centre. It has a national and international reputation for its clinical research.

The Trust is committed to continuing professional development and operates a flexible working policy. A flexible working pattern over 7 days is required.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
