URGENT! Great opportunity for experienced PTs to work with National Team athletes in China.
Beijing Yanding is seeking experienced orthopaedic or sport physical therapists to work with National Team athletes in various sports throughout China. Founded in 2007, Beijing Yanding is a pioneer in sport performance equipment and technology sales and the provision of sport medicine and performance coaching staff to athletes across China, as well as the delivery of physical therapy and performance education across SE Asia.
We serve the high-performance population from youth to the Olympic and professional level, as well as tactical athletes. Under the direction of Yanding’s Chief Technical Officer, or designate, Physical Therapists (PT) will be responsible for the direct physical therapy care and team therapy programming for one or more national sport teams. Yanding will match your experience and interests to the appropriate national sport(s) teams. PTs will operate out of National Training Centres or any other location as directed by the needs of the team. This is an exciting opportunity for experienced and passionate PTs who possess a valid Masters degree in physiotherapy (or equivalent) from a recognized institution as well as a current PT
license in good standing and current malpractice insurance. You will be given the opportunity to work with national/Olympic athletes as part of a team which includes experienced Technical and Performance Coaches.
The successful candidate will have proven experience working with high performance athletes and teams in injury prevention, treatment and rehabilitation. Specifically, we are looking for PTs with advanced training in manual therapy/manipulation, dry needling, movement analysis (e.g. FMS, SFMA etc.), advanced assessment and treatment systems training (e.g. DNS, Anatomy Trains KMI, FST, FRR/FRS etc.) and strength and conditioning (e.g. ASCA, NSCA, CSEP etc.). Successful candidates will be offered contracts ranging from 2.5-4.5 years in duration preparing athletes for the next summer and winter Olympics. This position will require domestic and international travel. The ability to read, write, and speak English is mandatory. Credit will be given to those who can communicate in Chinese.
Salary will be 6,000USD (or equivalent) per month. Benefits include reimbursement for visa application costs upon arrival in China, return flight to place of origin with extra baggage allowance, financial supplementation to assist with the purchase of medical insurance, 20 days of paid holidays per year, and 12 days of education per year through the Movement Academy. Housing and food will be provided at no cost to PTs at the appropriate training site(s). If a spouse is travelling, a stipend may be able to be arranged for an apartment rental vs. food and accommodations for the PT. Food and accommodations would still be provided when the PT is travelling with the team, but not while at the home base.
At this time, we have no ability to support the housing of families. Any additional costs associated with the moving or housing of family members will be at the applicant’s expense.
Positions are available immediately.
To apply, please submit your resume and cover letter by 28 February, 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org and include “Yanding PT Application – Your Last Name” in the subject line.
We look forward to working together in the near future.
