There are also opportunities for staff within the team to contribute to the research activity in the Centre for Allied Health and both Kingston University and St George’s University of London via the joint Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education.

The Person
We are looking for qualified Physiotherapists from both practice and those who have experience working in Higher Education.

Whatever your background, you’ll have HCPC registration and a Master’s degree. Having a teaching qualification, such as the UKPSF2 or PGCHE would also be an advantage, although this would be supported within role if not already acquired. The Faculty supports new members of staff to gain appropriate qualifications and are keen to support ongoing academic and professional development.
