Occupational Therapist, Wellington – 2 x Full-time, Permanent
Are you a NZ registered Occupational Therapist committed to quality client-centred practice and interested in working in a supportive and friendly team environment? Due to continued business growth we are looking to expand our team with two roles!

Based in Wellington you will be delivering a wide range of rehabilitation services in the wider 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 with enthusiasm and passion for delivering amazing service to their clients, who enjoy working as part of a team and who have excellent communication and relationship-building skills. Previous experience in working with either Mental Health or Neuro Rehabilitation is preferred.
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. Travel throughout the region is required and a company car is provided.
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.

• A positive attitude and willingness to learn.
• Intermediate to advanced computer skills (including Microsoft Office).
