Working at Better Rehabilitation is a career, not a job. We are committed to providing you with the opportunity to make a difference to those in need.

Your New Role:

This is a unique opportunity to develop and strengthen your clinical expertise by providing both assessment based and therapeutic interventions to a variety of people between the ages of 7 and 65 years old, who present with neurological disorders and other types of disabilities. In collaboration with your supportive multidisciplinary team, you will be working with clients and their families and caregivers, many of whom have NDIS funding, both in the community setting and in our clinic spaces.

At Better Rehab, no two days are the same, though a typical Occupational Therapist’s day may involve:

  • Visiting a variety of people who rely on you to improve their lives. You will assess their needs, design appropriate therapy plans, and advocate on their behalf. You may work with participants with a range of conditions including neurological conditions, ASD and many more.
  • Providing support in the areas of home modifications (both complex and simple); equipment prescription including mobility aids, positioning supports, bathroom aids and seating; and assistive technology across a range of areas including self-care, low tech and learning aids.
  • Collaborating with your multidisciplinary team consisting of Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologists, Speech Pathologists and Positive Behaviour Support Practitioners to share knowledge and ideas
  • Celebrating “Weekly Wins” with your participants, their families, your colleagues, and your supportive Management Team
  • Attending formal and informal opportunities for networking and learning and development across a national level
  • Reporting directly to the NDIS

When You Join Us:

We have a young, dynamic and engaged workforce, and we understand the importance of structured onboarding and ongoing support and assistance for all staff, no matter your experience level.

When you join Better Rehab, you will join a small cohort of likeminded people to share your new starter experience with. We ensure that YOU are provided with dedicated, tailored support from our existing team. When you join us, you will be provided with:

  • A Team Leader to assist you with our systems and practices as well as settle you in to your new office
  • A Clinical Supervisor who will meet with you formally each week, providing clinical support in the realm of Occupational Therapy and guide your internal and external professional development activities
  • A buddy within your office to answer any ad hoc questions that you may have
  • A supportive multidisciplinary team to collaborate with and learn from. Whilst we offer opportunities to work from home, our clinicians are predominantly office-based to promote shared learning. In some cases, this also includes sharing participants with another member of the MDT, promoting a holistic approach to therapy.
  • An iPhone and laptop to support flexible working and work/life balance as well as a designated therapy kit to ensure you are well equipped when working out in the community

We Value You:

Without you, there is no us. In order to provide the best support possible to our clients, we need to empower our team by providing workplace autonomy, flexibility, structured training and development initiatives, as well as strong opportunities for career progression. YOU, as our newest team member, will have your developmental pathway clearly defined.

Better Rehab Policies that support YOU include:

  • 4 days' study leave each year as well as company financial support to attend external courses and events in areas that you are passionate about
  • Paid parental leave and flexible working options so that you can balance your personal and professional life
  • Interstate relocation opportunities across our 4 Australian states
  • Passionate leave - long term unpaid leave so you can travel, take a career break, or pursue projects you are passionate about without breaking your continuity of service
  • Access to external professional services for mental & emotional wellbeing through EAP, our confidential counselling support service
  • Flexible working hours and work from home options
  • Regular team bonding and celebrations of each other's life events
