Who We Are:

At Better Rehabilitation, we are people people. We are committed to supporting people of all ages living with a disability or neurological disorder. This commitment has benchmarked Better Rehabilitation as a premium NDIS provider, and to continue leading the movement of lifelong journeys for participants and staff alike, we are looking for passionate and caring Occupational Therapists to support people to live their best lives.

Our values are at the core of what we do. When you join our team, you will see that your colleagues embody our values of:

  • We Get Sh*t Done!

Our participants and colleagues rely on us. We don’t waste time and work hard to help participants achieve goals they never thought possible.    

  • We are People People

We are proud to be an organisation free from politics and bureaucracy, and genuinely care about our interactions with one another and our participants. We take pride in treating each client based on their individual needs.

  • Work Smarter, not Harder

We find ways to improve outcomes using the resources we have. Our team is diverse, and we leverage one another’s strengths to get the best result.

  • Frankly, we Give a Damn

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:

As is the nature of the NDIS, you will be providing assessment and rehabilitation Occupational Therapy services across a varied caseload ranging from Paediatric to adult clients all with differing neurological and disability conditions. You will be working with the clients and their families and caregivers, many of whom will have NDIS funding.

At Better Rehabilitation, no two days are the same, though a typical 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
  • Collaborating with your multidisciplinary team consisting of Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Speech Pathologists to share knowledge and ideas
  • Celebrating success stories with your participants, their families, your colleagues, and your supportive management team
  • Attending formal and informal opportunities for learning and development

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. Our policies to achieve this include:

Training and Development:

  • Access to industry leaders for structured on-the-job training, including weekly clinical supervision, onsite in-services and formal and informal feedback sessions
  • An inter-disciplinary, internal mentoring program focusing on the holistic picture of your career
  • Access to our regularly updated Professional Development Calendar to promote continuous learning in areas of interest. Some of our upcoming events include:
    • Capacity building under the NDIS: Routines based intervention and coaching;
    • Which device will suffice: Power, manual and power assist wheelchairs; and
    • Home Modifications: The Two M’s, Major and Minor.
  • 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
  • Our policy is to promote internally where possible. You will be informed about our internal pathways and coached to achieve your career goals with us

Supporting You through Work and Life:

  • 8 weeks paid parental leave, interstate relocation opportunities, and long-term unpaid leave to pursue interests and events outside of work without breaking your continuity of service
  • Access to external professional services for mental & emotional wellbeing through EAP, our confidential counselling support service
  • Regular team bonding and celebrations of each other’s life events
  • Access to flexible working arrangements to enable you to balance life and work

What we are Looking For:

We recruit on the philosophy of once a Better Rehabber, always a Better Rehabber. This means we have a strong focus on personality, cultural fit and long-term career potential. Afterall, we are a movement, and this is a career, not just a job. If you meet the below criteria, we would love to speak with you:

  • 3+ years relevant experience
  • You are driven, autonomous and passionate about pursuing your life and career goals
  • You are a people person and want to be a part of something bigger
  • You are adaptable, professional and a strong communicator
