Are you passionate about providing OT support to infants and young children who have complex physical and medical needs?

Are you looking for flexible working arrangements that are suited to your lifestyle?

Are you a life-long learner and keen on delivering evidence-based practices?

Then you might be the perfect fit for our team!!

At Melbourne Paediatric Occupational Therapy (MPOT), we are a small team of OTs with unique skills and experience in supporting infants and children who predominantly have complex physical and medical needs. Specific experience in this area would be a bonus but is not entirely necessary - however a passion for supporting these children and families is a must!

At MPOT, we strive to support children and families in their own homes and communities across the north and west region of Melbourne. We also have a small clinic base in Carlton North. We are constantly evolving as a team and our unique services are in high-demand, so we’re looking to bring OTs on board who are passionate, skilled and collaborative to achieve the best outcomes for the children and families we work with.

Our clients:

* Working with children aged 0-6 years, with a specific focus on 0-3 years
* The infants and children we work with predominantly have developmental concerns or specific diagnoses that are neurological, neuromuscular, genetic, complex medical conditions etc.
* Specific infant caseload – providing support and occupational therapy specific assessment and intervention to families as the needs of their infants evolve.
* Toddlers and preschoolers – supporting families to establish goals for their child that are meaningful and relevant to them, and provide specific assessment and intervention within the home or community setting.

Your role:

* Flexible working arrangements – work the time fraction, hours and days that suit you!
* Predominantly outreach support with home visits and community visits to support infants and children in their own natural environments. As we cover a broad area of Melbourne, your caseload’s geography could potentially be negotiated.
* The potential to deliver services to a small clinic caseload based in Carlton North.
* Utilising standardised assessments and evidence-based interventions where appropriate (we can discuss a plan for PD and support around this if needed).
* Assistive Technology prescription and associated report writing for funding purposes (specific support and upskilling can be provided in this area).
* Protected time for regular supervision, caseload specific support (including the option for joint client sessions with our experienced OT team), internal and external professional development targeted at your individual learning needs and interests.
* Access to a work computer and phone to set you up for working out and about.
* Full admin support as needed, so you can focus on your clinical caseload.
* Above award salary, negotiated based on qualifications and experience.

Our requirements:

* Relevant qualification in Occupational Therapy.
* 2 or more years experience working with children and families in an OT role.
* Full registration with AHPRA and a current Working With Children Check.
* Your own car and driver’s license (we will reimburse your kms).
* An ability to work autonomously when out and about in the community, with good time management skills.
* A commitment to lifelong learning and becoming the best OT you can be.
