OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST – Guide Dogs Queensland
Uniquely different, mainly in-home, client-centred role involving assessment, planning, relationship building & more in a progressive, contemporary support environment.
Due to recent expansion, a full-time position has become available for a well-qualified and dedicated Occupational Therapist who has experience working with people who have a disability.
To secure this exciting and absorbing position, you’ll need to be an emotionally mature individual with experience in a comparable role, some NDIS knowledge and the enthusiasm to learn more. Nationally accredited Occupational Therapy degree qualifications and registration with OTA and AHPRA are essential.
Working closely with a multidisciplinary support team, much of your work will centre around getting to know your clients’ lives – their goals, aspirations, environment and movements. You’ll carefully assess their situations and determine exactly what will be needed for them to achieve the most rewarding of independent lifestyles.
As you design and implement purpose-built programs to achieve these goals, you will follow all the procedures that ensure they access all of the NDIS funding to which they’re entitled.
Among its many aspects this pleasantly busy and multi-faceted position will involve regular travel within an allocated region, both in your support role and to liaise with potential clients or conduct home/workplace environmental risk assessments.
You’ll also be given opportunities for continuing development and encouraged to conduct workshops so staff, volunteers and other stakeholders can increase their understanding of the impact of vision impairment on daily living activities.
For this genuinely interesting role, you will need to be a committed, professionally driven OT practitioner.
Organised and capable, you are an enthusiastic problem solver with excellent people skills, great communication, high levels of integrity, a strong work ethic and are able to bring a current First Aid Certificate and Open Driving Licence. Of particular value in this role will be your calm and unflappable demeanour.
