Job Reference: J62-SIR646

Sirona care and health CIC
£27,266 - £35,545

We are Sirona care & health, a Community Interest Company committed to providing local communities with a range of high quality specialist health and social care services across South Gloucestershire, parts of Bristol and Bath and North East Somerset. For us, it’s about the personal approach; we take pride in what we do and deliver the high standard of care that we’d expect for ourselves and our families.

In return we offer an excellent range of benefits including generous holiday entitlement, paid enhancements for bank holiday/night working (where applicable), a contributory pension scheme (including, for some roles, the NHS pension scheme), a planned induction program, extensive learning and development opportunities, health and wellbeing programmes, flexible working patterns, staff excellence awards, in-house physiotherapy support and more!

We are looking for a vibrant, experienced and motivated Band 20 (band 6 equivalent) Physiotherapist, with a Community Rehabilitation and Reablement ethos to join our dynamic and supportive team in Skylark Rehabilitation Unit, located in Yate in South Gloucestershire.

Skylark is a 30 bedded community unit and we provide intensive rehabilitation for people who are unable to safely return directly home following a hospital stay due to on-going rehabilitation and care needs. We will also support those people who need more complex discharge planning to enable them to return home. We are passionate about delivering high quality care to the people we support while helping them to reach their full functional potential and optimise their well-being.

We actively promote a multi-disciplinary model of care and our nursing, therapy and support teams work closely with our social care and community teams, to make sure those we support have an exceptional experience. We also work with our GPs with a Specialist Interest in Older People’s Care and other senior medical colleagues to ensure we provide care of the highest standard.

The successful candidates will have a real passion for their work, with excellent communication skills, a positive attitude, and respect for those we support, their carers and families as well as our colleagues in the wider multidisciplinary team. You will provide a high quality service and leadership to more junior colleagues and get involved in service development.

You will join a team of experienced nurses, therapists and support staff to provide compassionate care, and will work with us to create an environment providing high quality rehabilitation and reablement.

If you are willing to go the extra mile to make everyone in the unit feel important and valued and be the ‘best that they can be’ then we want to hear from you.
