Fixed term part time role available – 0.3FTE

Rotating roster shifts – weekday and weekend work

We’re looking for an Occupational Therapist to join the Hoki ki te Kāinga service. We are an interdisciplinary team that works in the community setting to support people in their transition home from hospital. Our service focuses on providing rehabilitation in the home environment, to help people increase their independence and function.

We want someone who will grow with us! We encourage and support people who are innovative, eager to learn and enhance their skills, and are passionate about caring for our community. You’ll be dealing in the business of people every day so communication, teamwork and empathy should be high on your list of attributes.

You’ll bring your experience of working within the rehabilitation setting, and your exceptional interpersonal skills. You’ll be passionate about improving health outcomes for our clients, and making a real difference to the people you work with.

If successful, you would work closely with a number of clients. You would complete goal setting in collaboration with the person and their whānau, and identify goals that are meaningful to them. You would develop individualised rehabilitation plans to increase their independence in activities of daily living, with the aim of making every moment a possible rehab opportunity. A key component of this role is the oversight of the client’s rehabilitation program and the coaching and supervision of rehabilitation assistants.

This position would require you to deliver occupational therapy specific interventions to a wide range of clients, as well as working in an inter-professional manner with a smaller group of clients. You would have the opportunity to develop both your occupational therapy and your inter-professional skill set, in a very supportive environment.

 This role includes weekend and weekday work, and rostered days of the week are able to be negotiated before commencing in the role. It includes excellent pay rates including penal rates for weekends and statutory holidays worked. It is possible for a part time staff member to job share this with another DHB role.

Through our values here at the HBDHB, we are proud of our team’s diversity.  We believe in the strength of a diverse and inclusive workforce, to help us achieve the best outcomes for our patients and the communities in which we operate and serve.

We’re committed to delivering and living our DHB values of He Kauanuanu – Respect, Ākina – Improvement, Rāranga te tira – Teamwork and Tauwhiro – Care. You should be someone who has similar personal values.

This is your opportunity to be part of an innovative service and to make a huge difference in people’s lives. We want your input in bringing about this change and shaping how our service develops.
