We are currently looking for a qualified Occupational Physiotherapist who is enthusiastic about developing their skills and knowledge in the specialist and expanding area of Occupational Physiotherapy in occupational health. We are happy to work with physios with two years+ post-graduate experience, to develop your skills and experience in delivering a wide range of ergonomic assessments and physiotherapy treatment.
You will be working at BP's UK Headquarters in Sunbury-on-Thames, completing ergonomic assessments, in order to make recommendations to managers to help employee's resolve musculoskeletal issues. Utilising your skills in evaluation, you will be required to assess within the workplace, followed by writing up a report summary to managers. There may also be a requirement to occasionally travel to other BP sites, including Canary Wharf in central London.
A typical full- time week will consist of assessing employees in their workplace, writing up reports, performing floor-walks to support employees and managers in reducing MSK injury risk and delivering general health and wellbeing advice.

Physios have full access to the on-site gym facilities, and work closely with the fitness team to develop exercise-based rehabilitation programmes. Working hours are typically 9am to 5pm, although some flexibility is possible. You will be joining a dynamic team of expert Occupational Physiotherapists in this specialist field, and full training and mentoring will be provided to you, along with CPD.
At Optima Health, we respect and reward achievement, and provide opportunities for you to expand and progress your career, supported by the Lead Physiotherapist, who acts as a mentor.
