An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced exercise professional to join our clinical and research team in the Centre for Exercise and Rehabilitation Science (CERS).

The post is open to suitable candidates that are a qualified physiotherapist/ nurse or exercise physiologist and have experience of exercise testing, demonstrate a high level of clinical expertise and experience of delivery and supervision of exercise programmes for those with long term conditions.

Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are essential. Having continued your professional development you must also display evidence of management/ leadership skills. It is desirable to have experience of clinical audit and participation in research.

You will manage the development and delivery of our rehabilitation programme for the post Covid-19 patient, working as part of our multi-disciplinary clinical team. You will be involved with liaising with other professionals to ensure the holistic care of this patient group.

The post will be multi-site based within University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust which may include working at Glenfield Hospital, the Leicester General Hospital, the National Centre for Sports Science Medicine (NCSEM) based at Loughborough University and Aylestone Leisure Centre.

If you think you can deliver the skills and the enthusiasm demanded by this challenging role and have a flexible approach to the needs of the service, then we would like to hear from you. A clean driving license is desirable, as you may be required to travel between sites.

COVID 19 Risk Assessment

Due to Covid 19 we have introduced a staff risk assessment into our pre-employment process.

This is intended to ensure you are able to safely perform your duties in any of our work areas, and if you have been identified as being vulnerable to coronavirus. Our main aim is to reduce risk and to ensure the safety of all new starters as well as current staff, patients and visitors.

If it is identified that you are within a vulnerable category, we will endeavour to make reasonable adjustments to accommodate this.

Tier 2 Sponsorship

We welcome applications from individuals who require Tier 2 sponsorship. NON-EEA candidates may not be appointed if a suitable EU/EEA candidate is successful. As it is unlikely the Trust would be able to satisfy the Home Office Visa requirements.

Tier 2 Certificate of Sponsorship

Applications from job seekers who require current 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 current Resident Labour Market Test which will be in place until the end of December 2020. UK Visas and Immigration 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 UK Visas and Immigration website.

From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, have had to 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) are also subject to this requirement.
