Cirque du Soleil is currently looking for a Head Therapist to start an exciting adventure in our newest residency show in Hangzhou, China.
Cirque is much more than just a show. At the center of Cirque's creative energy are talented people with a passion for challenging their own limits. Life at Cirque is about creating wonderment with colleagues of enlightening talent, and to do so at nothing less than the speed of light. Together we work hard, juggle priorities, sometimes shift trajectories, always have loads of fun and, above all, dare to reinvent ourselves, to reach for and to meet new challenges.
As a Head Therapist for the Performance Medicine Department at Cirque du Soleil, you will be expected to deliver the highest quality of care to the performers while simultaneously supporting the needs of the daily operations required to invoke, evoke, and provoke the senses! In this pivotal role you will lead, optimize, and deliver Performance Medicine Department services while operationally reporting to the Artistic Director.
A day in the life of a Cirque Head Therapist is always diversified. You will offer our performers full spectrum care throughout all facets of their activities. You will build adapted injury-prevention plans, be present for assistance during rehearsals and shows, structure and carry out emergency plans as needed, identify, qualify and work with local medical professionals, determine and carry out rehabilitation plans and work with artists and the Artistic Director for performer show reintegration.
We want to talk to you if you have a degree in athletic therapy or athletic training, and a minimum of six years’ experience. A master’s degree is a great asset. Ideally, you have worked with professional or amateur elite athletes, artistic performers, military personal, emergency response personnel or other categories of high performing individuals. You are known for having a great touch with patients and being an influential leader that praises teamwork. You are also curious and continually seeking to improve your skills by staying on top of best and emerging practices.
We are looking forward to discussing your next career move, make the decision to apply now!
