We are looking for a skilled and enthusiastic Physiotherapist, with a genuine interest in Oncology and Haematology, to join our friendly, multi-professional team at ‘The Cove’. You will be working under the guidance of the Macmillan Specialist Lead Physiotherapist in reviewing patients referred by the Oncology/Haematology teams and offering specialist individualised advice on Exercise, Fatigue Management and Breathlessness. You will also be helping with group sessions working in particular on exercise, Breathlessness, Health and Wellbeing events and Fatigue Management.

Do you have excellent and effective communication skills, a flexible approach and an ability to work under pressure, both as part of a team and independently?  Can you demonstrate an enthusiastic approach to learning and service delivery? If so then why not come and join our team? 

You will be based in ‘The Cove’, a new purpose designed and built Macmillan Centre, providing information and support to people affected by cancer throughout their cancer pathway. The particular emphasis of the centre is to enable patients to rebuild their lives following a cancer diagnosis, to allow them to live a fulfilled life with and beyond their cancer.

This is a part time, fixed term contract project post over 22 months and flexible working across 4 days will be required.  It is anticipated that the project may demonstrate a need for the post, in the hope that it would become substantive in the longer term.

It is anticipated that the project will start towards the end of 2018.
