Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust provides a range of community health services for both physical and mental health conditions, as well as a range of specialist services supporting people of all ages including family and young people services, mental health, learning disabilities and physical health community and inpatient services.

We deliver services to the people of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. Our 5500 staff serve a population of one million from over 100 sites across the region.


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 3 technical instructor to join our excellent community respiratory and rehabilitation team in Leicestershire.

The role involves the delivery of community based pulmonary and heart failure rehabilitation classes across Leicestershire. This includes completing patient assessments and walking tests and assisting clinicians with the delivery of group exercise and education sessions.

The role predominantly involves working closely with patients in an exercise class setting but also includes some responsibility for the administrative aspects of pulmonary and heart failure rehabilitation.

Applicants need to be motivated and enthusiastic with excellent communication skills. Applicants need to demonstrate they are hardworking and conscientious as well as friendly and approachable. Some basic knowledge of pulmonary and/or cardiac rehabilitation is expected and experience of working with members of the public is essential. Previous experience of working in a health care or exercise setting is essential as is previous experience of working in a team.

The successful applicant will work within a multi-disciplinary team and be supported by the Rehabilitation Team Lead and other rehabilitation clinicians. The post is permanent and will involve travel across Leicestershire to provide rehabilitation in several locations.

The community respiratory and rehabilitation team is currently going through an exciting period of service development and growth so this position is an excellent opportunity for someone to join the team and grow and develop alongside it.




We are committed to providing the best care that we can to our patients, and so some of our roles involve a Maths and English assessment. Where this is so, details will be shared with you as part of the recruitment process.

Details of our benefits, pledge and other important information about the application process, and working for us is contained in the documents linked to our advert.

For areas where our teams work to staffing rosters, rosters are set in advance at a team level and you will be joining an established roster. Your rostered shifts will be confirmed to you when arranging your start date. We will consider requests to vary working patterns in line with our flexible working policy.

To make the most of your application, we may consider successful applicants for vacancies for the same post in different locations where this is appropriate and meets our mutual requirements.

For all substantive roles the appointment of every new member of staff (excluding medical and dental staff) to a post is subject to a 6 month probationary period, details of which are in our Probation Policy.

We aim to develop a workforce that reflects our service users. To this end we actively implement equal opportunities in employment and service delivery and seek people who share our commitment. We strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community, particularly from underrepresented groups, including members of our black and minority ethnic communities. All jobs will require permission to work in the UK.

For all jobs the cost of undertaking a DBS disclosure at the required level will be met by the individual. This will be deducted from salary following commencement.

Requests from applicants to work alternative hours to those advertised may be considered.

Applicants who are currently ‘at risk’ within the local NHS, and meeting essential criteria will be given preference for interview over any other candidates who may apply for this post.
