Default Looking for a job in the UK

Hello!

I am a Portuguese physiotherapist currently seeking for registration at the HPC. Meanwhile, I am looking for a job in the UK as a physiotherapy assistant or other that suit my qualification and experience.

I have answered several job advertisements, but I got no response.
So I ask if any of you could help me, leting me know of any opportunity that you may know of.

Thank you.

Pedro Lucas

Hi Pedro and welcome on SomaSimple,

I saw your post on Physiobase and it's a pity that nobody replied to it yet. SomaSimple does not offer a job forum because it is simply sharing knowledge and experience. It is certainly a good idea to add one. (Well we'll begin the new forum with your post 8) ).

By the way, I know that our board is often seen by our English members and guests. Hope your post there will help you to find a job and contacts.

Hello!

there are several english tests accepted for international applicants, but I recommend the TOEIC because it is the easiest. the IELTS requires a 7 overall score with no element below 6,5. it is difficult in deed for those who don't speak english fluently.

you have all the information in the site:

Hi P;

Have you got the English required standard/score ?

I have entered ielts 3 times , the last time i got overall 6 , 6.5 listening , 6 reading , 6 writing , 6 speaking .

I believe ielts is very bad Test , it hinder me from going on through the registration process in an English-speaking Country .

cheers

Hi E!

I got a 7 overall but I had a 6 in speaking! So I tried the TOEIC and it is very easy, I am sure you can do it! it has no interview nor writting, just multiple answer questions!!! you must have 810 out of 990. I got 935.

take a look at the site I gave you. it explaines everything.

luck
Pedro

Hi Pedro

you may struggel to get work in the UK at present. There are few jobs and theeir is fierce competition from UK qualified physios both for physio jobs and for assistant jobs as many new graduates are taking up this posts as a stop gap while they try to get a physio job. In addition, due to the local, national oversupply the UK does not list physiotherapy as a job which should be offered as a matter of course to foreign national applicants. Doesn't men you can't get a job but you are trying at a very difficult time. Around 60% or more of this years graduates in the UK are not employed as physios, so you have a lot of competition.

You probably received no reply on physiobase as no-one knows of any jobs or if they do they are lining up at them and don't want the competition.

Not what you want to hear but that is the way it stacks up for now.
