Occupational Therapist | DOTS Allied Health Services

Summary

Looking for a job where you are valued for your clinical skills and given autonomy to practice effectively?

Keen to focus on the clients rather than KPIs or policies? To achieve an effective work / life balance?

We are looking for two OTs who love what they do and want quality OT to be their work focus. Who want to feel part of a team that is supportive and has an approach that favours care over numbers. Who want to feel like they are a part of something positive and helpful. (Not just part of a system).

We are looking for committed and professional OTs for our established community-based caseload. This caseload offers you the opportunity to get to know your clients.

Ideally, you have at least 2 years' experience in rehab, broad hospital experience, disability and / or community. Our clients are diverse. A background in one of these areas generally means that you have broad exposure to many health conditions and disabilities and the subsequent impacts on lives.

We have a job that you will love - helping you to achieve work / life balance with real flexibility. (We mean this. Work is something that you may be very passionate about but there’s a good chance that you’re more passionate about your family!)

We are offering a full-time, permanent position and a permanent part-time position starting immediately.

This is all mobile, community OT. No parking issues and no peak hour traffic. Our work is all in-home – rehabilitation, home mods, aids prescription etc. (DVA, Private, Medicare and NDIS work). We truly work towards enablement and promote independence. 

Work from home or the clinic in your own time with the dedicated support of an experienced clinical and admin team. 

Enjoy autonomy and recognition of your experience and capacity. (This isn’t a flippant statement. We believe in the skills of our staff. We will also support you carefully).

DOTS Allied Health has operated in and around Brisbane since 2006. We have established a good reputation and great ties with other health services. Our adults team includes 16 OTs, 2 DTs and admin support designed to allow you to focus on the clinical.

Full training (including on the road training) provided with thorough ongoing support. We are not going to dump you with procedure manuals and let you work it out.

We have a job you're going to love! We know this because our staff stay with us for ages and love what they do. When we advertise, it’s because we have maternity leave to cover, an expanding caseload to cover or a staff member leaving because they are ready for a change.

We work with you for performance development and clinical skill growth. We provide PD with a focus on clinical skills as well as workshops with suppliers. (This is to be sure that we are across the ever-changing landscape of equipment options and their pros, cons and features). We offer some financial support for PD.

We're all highly experienced and frankly, good at what we do. We are looking for other experienced OTs who are interested in providing high quality OT.

Want to know more? We are happy to put you in touch with current staff so you can find out what they really think – pros and cons. (Sadly, we do not offer a job without imperfections!)

The available caseload is based in the Brisbane Bayside area, Redlands, Wynnum / Manly and surrounds. 

Interested? Applications (including three referees, their phone and email contacts) with a cover letter can be emailed to our lovely admin team (Lynda, Christina and Emma) at admin@dotshealth.com.au

Got questions? Email them to the same place.
