The Occupational Therapy Manager will provide clinical leadership to a team of occupational therapists based in the Waikato/Lakes area and would be working within a large team of highly experienced, post graduate qualified Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Psychologists.  Active+ Waikato provides a supportive and widely varied environment to grow.  You would continue to maintain your OT skills by carrying a clinical caseload, but the role holds a generous allocation of non-clinical management time.

  • Maintaining relationships with key stakeholders/suppliers/clients
  • Working with the Management team on Strategic Planning and development
  • Continuing to maintain your occupational therapy skills by carrying a caseload.

 The successful applicant must be able to demonstrate:

  • A knowledge of ACC Contracts
  • Clinical and people leadership experience
  • A strong passion for delivering service excellence.
  • The ability to build and maintain relationships with key stakeholders.
  • A warm and friendly manner, enabling you to work well with others and understand multiple perspectives
  • The ability to problem solve and use initiative
  • A high standard of proficiency using Microsoft suite (Word, Excel, Publisher, PowerPoint, Outlook)
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Clean, full driver’s license

 We offer an excellent remuneration package including salary, phone and use of vehicle.  A mixed employment model of Contracting and Employee can also be offered for the right candidate.   If you are a hard-working team player with a sense of fun and are looking to work for a premier NZ Rehabilitation service, then this is the role for you!  Please apply by emailing your CV and cover letter to [email protected]
