Surrey Storm are looking for a highly skilled and motivated physiotherapist or sports therapist to join our medical team. The successful candidate will be responsible for providing expert medical care to the super league team, with the support of the Lead Therapist. The successful candidate will be expected to attend all Tuesday and Thursday training sessions, and matchdays (home and away – typically weekends but occasionally midweek).
The post holder must operate in a proactive manner, organising and prioritising their work within the guidelines set by their line manager and within the internally set protocols of the department. The post holder has the latitude to set their own agenda within these parameters and will organise and prioritise their own work to ensure that key deadlines and objectives are met, with supervisory approval. The post holder is expected to contribute to the shape and direction of the sports franchises.
The post holder is expected to provide advice and solutions to day-to-day problems within the specialist area in which they are familiar. Resolution for these issues will usually be found through referring to their previous experience of similar problems or through making reference to departmental policies and procedures. When faced with more complex issues, the post holder is required to identify the nature of the problem or issue through analysis and to apply their judgement and initiative in order to find an appropriate resolution. When dealing with particularly unusual or complex problems, the post holder is expected to put forward recommendations on managing the situation/problem to their line manager, with only the most complex problems being referred to their line manager for resolution.
As the post holder is involved in both the delivery and development of therapy services, they will frequently be required to take a creative approach to their work to ensure current levels of business are maintained and must be able to confidently liaise with a range of both internal and external contacts to achieve these aims. The post holder is expected to suggest improvements to current working methods or systems and to advise both the Lead Therapist and franchise head coach as to where there are specific issues which need to be addressed. They are expected to take a pro-active approach to identifying ways to address these and to implement them under the guidance of their line manger, where appropriate. Whilst directly reporting to the Lead Therapist, the post holder will work closely with the Lead Strength and Conditioning Coach, and Director of Netball and Franchise General Manager to provide appropriate guidance and support to meet the needs of each area.
