Position Available: Occupational Therapist - Full-time / Part-time

Come and join a caring, supportive small team where we value lifelong learning and supporting each other to grow as therapists….

We are a small, family-owned clinic based in Box Hill North, looking to add to our small team of creative, empathetic and friendly therapists. 

We use a play-based therapy approach that is flexible, creative and tailored to the child's unique interests and needs. We use a family-centred and coaching based approach where the parent and child's priorities and needs are at the forefront. We are particularly looking for applicants with a sense of curiosity, playfulness, creativity and enthusiasm.

We believe in bringing our whole selves to our work and a holistic approach to Occupational Therapy practice. We all bring our complementary passions and interests in music, yoga, art and dance to our therapy sessions and invite you to share your passions too! We have an exciting, fully equipped Sensory Gym that the kids just love, but we also flexibly offer nature-based therapy in our garden, at the nature reserve or playground, as well as of course sessions at home, Kinder or school.

Why work with us? We offer...

- Working with a friendly and supportive small team with plenty of peer-to-peer support and collaboration. We offer fortnightly team training sessions and quarterly full day professional development days to deepen your clinical reasoning and build your confidence as a therapist.

- A high level of internal support and training from experienced therapists. We offer ongoing fortnightly supervision sessions and plenty of training and support tailored to your learning needs. If you are an early career therapist, you will receive 4 weeks of paid 1:1 direct training, joint sessions, shadowing and coaching, before you are given your own independent caseload.

- Flexibility to develop and offer group programs based on your complementary skills and passions. Are you excited about music, dance, yoga, gardening or art? You are welcome to incorporate your passions into the groups we develop and offer, and let your strengths shine.

- Generous Professional Development allowance for additional courses and paid learning time to support your learning and growth as a therapist

- We celebrate and appreciate work/life balance, and so offer a choice of work days and hours, part-time or full-time, between 15-40 hours per week. However, due to high demand from our clients, availability in the afternoon is important and applicants who are available to work on Saturdays will be prioritised.

- A diverse and engaging caseload of children and young people aged 2-21 years

- A varied mix of clinic-based work and community visits, depending on your interests

- Flexibility to work from home as required for admin tasks
