Umbo is a social enterprise created to solve a huge problem – the lack of speech and occupational therapy across Australia. At Umbo, we believe that despite where you live, no one should be forced to wait 18 months to access vital health care. We are passionate and dedicated to our purpose. 

We're looking for occupational therapists to deliver services online, via video link, all from the comfort of your own home. We don't need you to be overly experienced with telehealth. We need you to be as passionate about this issue as we are. We need you to want to learn, and maintain high quality services.

As a contractor you will be able to work flexibly and determine your work hours and days - from 15 hours per week up to full-time. You can fit your Umbo work around other commitments you have, including another job, study or childcare responsibilities.

As an online role, you can perform this role from any location, not just the location advertised on Seek.

Currently, we are actively recruiting paediatric or generalist occupational therapists who can see clients across the age spectrum. If you are a specialist adults occupational therapist, you are welcome to apply, and your details will be added to our recruitment pool for when we are actively recruiting this role.



Qualifications and Experience

  • Bachelor or masters degree in occupational therapy
  • Experience working as an occupational therapist, ideally at least 3 years or relevant prior working experience
  • Current Working with Children Check (renewed every 3 years) and National Police Clearance (renewed every 5 years)
  • Current NDIS Worker Screening Check
  • Current AHPRA registration

Selection Criteria

  • A passion and understanding of person-centred, evidence-based practice
  • A commitment to personal and professional quality improvement
  • Great verbal and written communication skills
  • Excellent time management and organisational skills
  • A desire to help deliver services to rural and regional Australia
  • An ability to work effectively within a remote team

Tasks & responsibilities

  • Assess, implement, and manage client supports in accordance with best practices.
  • Develop intervention plans, including short and long term goals, in line with the client’s NDIS goals.
  • Develop the child’s speech pathology program in consultation with the key worker, family, and support network.
  • Work cooperatively and effectively within the trans-disciplinary team to provide families with a high quality, coordinated service.


  • Flexible working conditions - work from home and determine your own hours
  • Professional supervision
  • Professional development opportunities

As a social enterprise, Umbo is committed to reinvesting 50% of its profit back into the company to reach more vulnerable communities.
