Occupational Therapist | Manawatu-Whanganui_NZ

  • Develop your clinical, business and leadership skills.
  • Leading integrated health provider with scope for you to make your mark
  • Competitive salary, performance based incentives and professional development

Take the lead and drive community and vocational rehabilitation work. Excellent support and vast career opportunities

My client is one of the largest integrated health providers in New Zealand. They have a reputation for providing excellent multidisciplinary injury management, vocational, community and musculoskeletal rehabilitation services.

With a stable and supportive multidisciplinary team in place and a wide network of vocational rehabilitation colleagues and mentors on hand, they now require a confident and self-motivated Occupational Therapist to join their team in Palmerston North to focus primarily on vocational rehab. 

This is an opportunity to carve your own way. Leadership and business development opportunities are there for the taking.  You’ll be required to build relationships with clients and employers, coordinate return to work programmes, perform assessments and audits, investigate equipment needs and provide workplace training.  However as the unmet need is so great in the region, you’ll be supported by the practice manager to take the lead in this area and continue to gain referrals and build a team to deliver services.

It is essential that you are passionate about community and vocational rehabilitation. You will build solid relationships with your stakeholders through your clinical excellence and your professional, positive and confident manner. Whilst you’ll be required to work autonomously, you still have the benefit of being part of a fun team back at home base as well as a great vocational rehab support network down the road in Wellington for you to skype and meet with regularly. Career opportunities across the network of clinics are vast.

It goes without saying that you’ll be a qualified Occupational Therapist with a current practicing certificate enabling you to work in New Zealand. You’ll hold a current drivers licence.

The successful applicant will receive a competitive salary based on experience, performance based incentives, professional development allowance and a vehicle for work use.

Apply now, or for a confidential conversation and to discuss this position in more detail, please don’t hesitate to phone Jeanette Rendle on 06 280 1374 or 027 705 7079.
