Excellent Salary and Benefits
please contact Sharon McArdle for further details.
Our full time
staff covers most of our work, but we require freelance staff to cover certain
areas of the UK or to assist when our diaries are full or to cover sickness
absence. Applicants should complete the one page questionnaire and attach their
CV and a current photo. Our Head of Physio will review applications and advise
the type of work the freelancer is suitable for i.e. courses, clinics, health
promotions or all. Successful applicants will receive a contract for services
detailing terms, conditions, pay etc.
When suitable work becomes available we
will contact the freelance physio in that area and arrange the booking on for a
date to suit the freelancer. Sometimes the client specifies the date and if our
first choice freelancer is not available, we will contact the next freelance
physio on our database. Full training and all equipment, materials, forms etc
will be provided by PhysiCare. If you are interested in presenting client
handling courses, you will need to come to Glasgow for one days training on the
manoeuvres we teach. No charge will be made for this training, but freelancers
will have to pay for their own travel and accommodation if applicable. Half day
courses, clinical and promotional work do not require face-to-face training.
Everything you need will be posted to you.
The amount of work each freelancer
wishes to do is entirely up to him or her. Some freelancers work for us 4-6 days
a month and others once or twice a year.
Although all freelancers should be
Chartered Physiotherapists, PhysiCare has it's own insurances, which covers
anyone working on behalf of the company.
