 Job Description Application Form


Brainwave are looking to recruit an enthusiastic paediatric physiotherapist to join our integrated therapy team based at the South West Brainwave Centre in Bridgwater, Somerset.

The South West therapy team is an integrated Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy and Educational Therapy department, who work closely to provide a hands on approach for babies, children and teenagers covering a wide geographical area.

This is a great opportunity to assess and treat children with variety of complex backgrounds, but with the luxury of time. We typically see clients over the 1-2 day period so that a joint MDT approach can be achieved.

We have an on-site hydrotherapy pool and you will be expected to lead daily hydrotherapy sessions.

You will receive supervision and get the opportunity to work directly with experienced multidisciplinary team members.

At Brainwave we actively encourage personal development and therefore you will have the opportunity to attend local special interest groups and external training courses.

For an informal discussion about either of the roles above please contact Carl Puzey, Centre Manager 01278 429089.
