We are looking for a highly motivated Physical Activity Advisor to work alongside the team at the spinal unit to provide patients with information about sport and physical activity and encourage them to take part in organised activities as part of their rehabilitation.

You will have an understanding of the sector, as well as a desire to work within sport for disabled people and a passion for helping newly disabled people to lead healthy active lives after injury.
