Are you a NZ registered Occupational Therapist committed to quality, client-centred care and interested in working in a supportive and friendly team environment?

APM is a rapidly growing health services company and we want YOU to be part of our Taranaki team!

Based in New Plymouth you will be delivering a wide range of rehabilitation services in the wider Taranaki region. You will have opportunity to have a mixed case load, providing rehabilitation to clients of all ages to assist them to return to work or independence, whilst building your clinical expertise.

We are looking for people who have enthusiasm and passion for delivering amazing service to their clients, enjoy working as part of a team and have excellent communication (both written and verbal) and relationship-building skills.  Experience in any of the following areas is preferred:  Musculoskeletal, Multi-Trauma, Vocational Rehabilitation, Concussion, Community-based Rehabilitation, Pain Management, Brain Injury or Spinal Cord injury Rehabilitation, Support Needs assessments (SNA), Housing modification, Wheelchair and Seating Assessments and Mental Health.

You will be comfortable working autonomously, yet part of the wider allied health team.  The work is varied and dynamic, so you will need to be proactive, flexible and adaptable in response to whatever comes your way.   First-rate time management, administration and report writing skills are also important to meet our contracted service requirements in a timely manner.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a company that is committed to supporting your personal and professional growth.  Whilst this is advertised as a full-time position, we would also like to hear from applicants interested in part time or independent contractor roles.

Essential requirements:

  • The relevant tertiary qualifications (BHSc OT, BPHTY, Nursing etc)
  • Current registration with your professional body or ability to apply for this
  • Minimum of 2 years’ post graduate clinical experience
  • A full NZ/ Australian Driver’s Licence
  • A positive attitude
  • Intermediate to advanced computer skills (including Microsoft Office).

Benefits and culture

  • A highly competitive remuneration package including a base salary of $60,000 to &75,000 (based on experience), company vehicle for work and some personal use, mobile phone and laptop, generous CPD budget and regular in-service training.
  • Reimbursement of APC and Professional Membership (OTNZ).
  • At APM we strive for good work life balance with opportunity for flexible working options.
  • Our mission is to create positive change and enable better lives. Our values underpin our work – integrity, customer focus, respect, empathy, achievement, teamwork and enthusiasm.

If this sounds like you, please apply online with your CV and covering letter explaining why this role is for you.  If you want to have a confidential chat about the role, please phone Kylie Wild on 021 473 352.  All correspondence will be kept strictly confidential
