About the Trust

Formed in 2002, Pennine Care has grown to become a leading provider of community and mental health services.

Our vision is to deliver the best care to patients, people and families in our local communities, by working effectively with partners to help people to live well.

We provide services across six boroughs of Greater Manchester - Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside and Glossop and Trafford – with a combined population of more than 1.3 million people.

Our 6,000 community and mental health staff work tirelessly to deliver the very best care – and provide around 2.4 million patient contacts each year. We are privileged that some of the most talented and leading experts choose to work for us.

We consider ourselves lucky to be based just a few miles from the wonderful city of Manchester. If you’re looking to re-locate, there’s no GREATER place to live and work than MANCHESTER.                                                  

Our city offers an outstanding, yet affordable quality of life. Where else does vibrant nightlife and diverse culture meet the peace and tranquillity of the rolling Pennines?

*Proposed interview date 14th March 2019*

37.5 hours per week. Would consider 30 hours per week.


Based in Heywood, Greater Manchester, the Posture and Mobility Centre (PMC) is looking to recruit a Technical Instructor at Band 4 level to join our small but highly skilled, progressive team.

The Posture and Mobility Centre provides an assessment service to individuals registered with GP’s within the Heywood Middleton and Rochdale and Bury boroughs, currently offering a service to some 14500 service users. Where criteria are met and the clinical assessment identifies that a wheelchair, buggy or associated equipment is required, PMC source and provide this equipment.

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual to support our wheelchair therapists in assessment and equipment provision for a delegated clinical caseload. Our team is small and we would look forward to bringing a new team member into this busy department and encouraging them to develop their skills further under the initial guidance of the Wheelchair Therapists. We aim to appoint a person who is able to use their own initiative, to be able to problem solve to a high level, and to be able to work both autonomously whilst being an active team member.

The successful applicant should note that the service is primarily paperless therefore a sound knowledge of IT and ideally experience in the use of a data base is desirable. There would also be an opportunity to become involved in aspects of service development.

Prior to applying, we would welcome the opportunity to show interested parties around the centre so that they can get more of a flavour of the team and what we offer.
