Cambridge Rugby Union Football Club or CRUFC is a rugby union club representing the city of Cambridge, England.
Cambridge Rugby is recruiting a Physiotherapist to join their medical team. Cambridge Rugby have been promoted to the Championship for the 23/24 season after being crowned National 1 Champions. This is an extremely exciting time to join the club, with rapid growth occurring across all sectors of the organisation.
The advertised role is a full-time position that includes a combination of provision to the Cambridge Rugby professional men’s 1st team, as well as clinic work within the onsite private practice – Cambridge Sports Medicine Centre (CSMC).
The rugby aspect of the role is a position embedded within the Cambridge Rugby Performance Team that includes several physiotherapists, S&C coaches, and medical practitioners. You will support the Head Physiotherapist in provision to the 1st team. You will be expected to work heavily in the injury prevention and risk mitigation space, assisting the Head Physiotherapist in devising and implementing solutions to reduce injury burden and maximise player availability. Injury management and rehabilitation is a standard aspect of the role, but is not the sole focus in and of itself. You will also provide pitchside cover at training and matches.
The clinic aspect of the role is a position within CSMC, which is a private practice located onsite at Cambridge Rugby. The practice is a multi-disciplinary sports medicine centre that provides service to the 600-member community section of the club, as well as private patients from the wider community.
