Physiotalk has been running tweet chats for nearly 5 years now and as our day jobs have changed Janet and Naomi need more help to keep our website and tweetchats sustainable overt the next year and beyond.
So, we’re looking for up to 5 people to join the physiotalk team and help run our twitter account, website and tweetchats. This is a great opportunity to network with others, develop your own digital skills and contribute to free physiotherapy CPD from the comfort of your own home!
We’re not running this as a formal recruitment process – we’re looking for people who are interested and contribute in different ways and keen to hear from students and physiotherapists working in different areas and different stages of their career.

What you’ll need:
- Passion and interest in using social media to support professional development.
- A laptop or desktop computer.
- A mobile phone with Twitter and Facebook Apps.
- Basic twitter and word processing skills.
- Up to 2 hours a month to help (spread across the month and including some tweetchats).
What we can offer:
