Physiotherapist & Clinical Pilates Instructor - Part time

  • : Malvern Physiotherapy Clinic
  • : 24-Sep-2020
  • : Malvern East VIC 3145

Description

This position is a really exciting opportunity to join a vibrant and progressive clinic in Melbourne's inner South East surrounded by hospitals and medical professionals.

The job will provide you with:

  • The ability to work alongside and learn from the very experienced physio team
  • A supportive, fun and enjoyable workplace
  • A balanced role that will include in-rooms treatment and teaching Clinical Pilates
  • A base wage with bonus structure that financially rewards enthusiasm and effort
  • Regular education and development sessions to refine your skills and continually develop you as a physiotherapist
  • We are looking for:

    Malvern Physiotherapy Clinic is seeking a permanent part-time physiotherapist to work between 18 and 25 hours per week. The position would be ideally suited to a physiotherapist with current experience in private practice that has been working in a role combining Clinical Pilates and hands-on treatment. The role will be in part taking over from another physiotherapist who had a strong Pilates following, so this will likely form between 25% and 50% of the caseload. Most importantly, we are looking for someone who genuinely cares for and enjoys their role in helping people achieve their goals, and wants to be part of a great workplace and fun team.

    About the job:

    You will have the opportunity to treat a range of musculoskeletal conditions in-rooms as one-to-one consultations. We service a wide range of clientele from school students, recreational athletes, professionals, office workers, stay at home parents and retirees. Our strong relationships with local sporting teams, schools, and medical professionals will also provide you with additional opportunities to take your physio skills outside of the clinic. Along with the work being enjoyable, this diversity will also assist you to build your caseload. Our patients are primarily private fee paying patients, although we also provide care to a small number of compensable patients.

    In addition to the in-rooms treatment, we will need you to take Clinical Pilates sessions, which will make up a portion of the role. These will primarily be 45-minute classes of up to three people, along with some one-to-one sessions. The Pilates ethos of the clinic is to use aspects from a wide range of Pilates approaches along with your physio clinical skills to run individualised sessions based on the initial and your ongoing assessment. You will not be fixated into following a particular Pilates approach but rather encouraged to understand the strengths and weaknesses of each to be able to use them when appropriate.

    About the clinic:

    Our clinical team prides itself on delivering the best possible care to our patients. We have two shop-fronts, with one of these being a purpose built Clinical Pilates space. The physiotherapy side of the clinic is setup to cater for the best in modern practice with equipment to assist in evidence-based practice. This includes a real time ultrasound, hand-held dynamometer and an on-site gym with space to demonstrate return to sport and return to gym activities. You would be joining a multidisciplinary team of very experienced therapists that have worked hard to develop a strong reputation in the local area, and great networks with other health providers. The existing team consists of 8 physiotherapists including specialist, sports and musculoskeletal titled therapists who work in a range of locations including elite sport, one myotherapist, and a remedial massage therapist.

    What you need:

    Previous experience in private practice is essential so that you have developed your skills in musculoskeletal physiotherapy and delivering a private practice service. Formal Clinical Pilates training and experience is also required. As with any private practice physiotherapist role, being highly motivated, and possessing excellent time management skills are big assets. You will also need excellent communication skills, as building relationships with your patients is essential in them trusting you and your advice. Confidence in your own ability but also knowledge of your limitations is also an essential part of you being able to provide the high level service we expect.

    Additional details:

    Remuneration is structured as base salary with bonus payments and will be based on your level of experience. The exact structure of remuneration will be presented to you through the interview process.

    This role can offer you around 18-25 hours depending on your availability. As you will be taking on some existing classes, you will need to be available to work Saturday mornings from 8am until 12.15pm. The other days would ideally be Monday and Wednesday but there is some flexibility in this.

    Start date is negotiable.
