After investing over GBP110 million in our campus and facilities, establishing nine schools across multiple disciplines and developing a suite of attractive, contemporary courses, we've seen the biggest rise across all English universities in UCAS acceptances this year.

We're a consistent Stonewall Top 100 employer and we hold the Social Enterprise Gold Mark for Responsible Business Practice. Our strength lies in our community: renowned for our friendly, supportive environment we will nurture your talent so that you can accomplish your ambitions.

YSJ Active is a service geared towards providing an exciting range of opportunities for sport, exercise and recreation. As part of our expansion, we are recruiting for a YSJ Active Sports Therapist.

The University has recently invested millions of pounds in new sports facilities and founded a new School of Sport. The YSJ Active Sports Therapist will establish and coordinate a successful sports injury service including injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation.

It is essential that the postholder possesses professional body status as a sports injury practitioner (e.g. MSST, MBASRat, HCPC) and be acute trauma qualified (e.g. IFAS, AREA, ICIS, IMMOFP). Candidates must also have experience of working with a range of athletes; in particular elite level, experience of working as part of a multidisciplinary team and experience of planning, delivering and evaluating evidence based return to sport strategies. The candidate must also be able to demonstrate independence, initiative and motivation and well as being flexible and adaptable in their approach to duties and working hours.

If you'd like to shape the story of a 175 year old institution with a fantastic future, we'd love to hear from you.

We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our workforce and welcome applications from all backgrounds.
