Snap shot of the role

Over recent years, Gymnastics has seen increased Olympic and international level success, along with significant challenges. British Gymnastics is committed to developing, embedding and driving an athlete centred, world class culture at all levels - where athlete welfare and positive experiences of the sport are paramount. With driven, passionate and committed Performance Support Team members, British Gymnastics is confident we can be successful in Paris and beyond, and that we can achieve this with a culture that embodies excellence in performance whilst prioritising, developing and caring for the individuals behind the performance.

At an exciting time of development within British Gymnastics, we are seeking a Senior Lead Physiotherapist to join an established interdisciplinary Performance Support Team. This role will provide highly advanced and specialised musculoskeletal physiotherapy support services to World Class Programme athletes in the lead up to Paris 2024 and beyond.

Our mission is to deliver world leading physiotherapy with unquestionable performance impact. We strive to optimise athlete health, exploring and navigating the complex relationship between performance and the threat of illness and injury.

We embrace this challenge, making intelligence-led decisions and developing innovative solutions so we can learn faster than our competitors. We push the boundaries of applied knowledge; however, it’s our ability to engage, empower and influence athletes and coaches which defines us. We know that sustained high-performance requires individual excellence, curiosity and a relentless drive for success, but it’s the collective power of our network which enables us to thrive.

In this role you will be responsible for leading the strategic development and evaluation of physical health services across the World Class Programme and will undertake major projects and facilitate solutions to complex performance challenges to optimise athlete health and maximise availability for performance.
