Why we’re looking for more physios to join us

As the UK’s leading independent physiotherapy provider, we have launched a major recruitment drive to significantly expand our physio workforce, following an increase in demand for our MSK services. Here CEO of Ascenti, Stephanie Dobrikova, explains the importance of the recruitment drive.

Our team of 300 highly-trained physiotherapists help people elevate their health and live active lives by delivering more than 500,000 in-person and virtual appointments each year. 

Since the pandemic we have experienced incredible growth at Ascenti, fuelled by a 25% increase in the size of our workforce (with now over 800 staff across the UK), the acquisitions of Six Physio and My Online Therapy, and significant investment in new services and products, including the Ascenti Reach app. 

Demand for our market-leading physiotherapy services has never been higher, most notably within the PMI (private medical insurance) sector, and we’ve secured new contracts with the likes of Bupa and Simplyhealth

To ensure we can continue to meet the surging demand for our physiotherapy services, we need to boost our capacity and grow our clinical and support teams, which is why we’ve launched this recruitment drive. We are particularly looking for physiotherapists with more than 2 years of post-graduate experience to accommodate the increase in PMI referrals, with a substantial proportion of senior roles available in London and the surrounding areas. 

It’s an exciting time to join us as we remain a trusted partner to the NHS and over 250 insurers and legal firms, and have expanded into new markets including PMI and occupational health, which means our physios benefit from having a really diverse patient caseload.

We understand that everyone has different goals and expectations when it comes to their career, which is why we are committed to supporting what matters to you – whether that’s improving the health and wellbeing of your patients, excelling in your career, or finding a role that fits with your family, location or other commitments. 

If you’re passionate about MSK physiotherapy, Ascenti is a fantastic place for you to develop and hone your skills. Our multi-award-winning learning and development programme, range of development pathways and annual promotion windows enable far faster career progression than is available elsewhere.
