Be an Occupational Therapist at Early Bird Therapy

We’re looking for an enthusiastic Occupational Therapist to join our team.

 

Your key role will be the provision of Occupational Therapy services for young children. We’re keen to help you develop as a professional and will tailor your caseload to suit your interests and strengths as a clinician.

The role will also include:

  • working closely with families and educators to improve child outcomes using family-centred, functional goals

  • collaborating with other professionals

  • keeping accurate records

  • participating in professional development and supervision

 

A competitive salary is negotiable based on your experience and you will also have access to regular clinical supervision and a dedicated professional development budget. Work/life balance is important to us, so work hours and start date are negotiable.

 

Skills and Experience
