Sport Physicians – Multisport (plus Chief Medical Officer for Wheelchair Fencing or Modern Pentathlon)
The English Institute of Sport (EIS):
The EIS exists to deliver outstanding performance – impacting support that enables UK High Performance System sports and athletes to excel.
The EIS is the world’s leading provider of Sports Science, Medicine, Technology and Innovation to high performance sport. It is unlike any other organisation in high performance sport, with an unrivalled network of experts in their fields delivering people-first solutions to over 40 Olympic and Paralympic Sports. Established in 2002, and now a wholly owned subsidiary of UK Sport, the EIS has been providing support to Olympic and Paralympic sports for almost 20 years and is now one of the largest organisations in high performance sport globally.
At the EIS we have around 400 high performing and highly motivated staff and work in a complex environment of external stakeholder relationships. The EIS sits in a pivotal role in the UK within high performance sport. On a day to day basis EIS people provide outstanding support services to sports in our elite training centres. It is also at the heart of leading innovation across sport as well as being a key voice in the world of sports science and technical and medical challenges that will face our world of sport over the coming years; mental health, doping, safeguarding, concussion – to name just a few.
EIS is looking to recruit two experienced Sports Physicians to join the team in Bath. The roles will combine a day/week (0.2 FTE) of multi-sport support (provided on a Monday or Wednesday) with the role of Chief Medical Officer to Wheelchair Fencing or Modern Pentathlon. One of the roles will take on the leadership of the Sports Medicine team and therefore we would encourage applicants who have leadership and management experience in addition to excellent Sports Physician skills.

The deadline for receipt of applications is midnight on Wednesday 2 February 2022.
We are committed to creating an even more diverse and inclusive workforce that will bring different perspectives to our work. So that we can more closely reflect UK society, we particularly encourage applications from under-represented groups including Black, Asian and people with other ethnically diverse backgrounds, those with a disability or long-term health condition and people returning to work after a career break.
We also understand the importance of maintaining a healthy work-life balance, so all of our roles are open to flexible working and, in many cases, remote-working too. We ask only that you work with us to find an arrangement that meets our sports and business needs and enables you to perform the role in full, in a way that works for both of us.
