Multiple Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 Positions Available for Immediate Start

The Department of Health (DoH) has multiple full-time and part-time Occupational Therapy vacancies across various locations within Tasmanian Public Hospitals, including Burnie, Latrobe, Launceston and Hobart.

Although positions are offered on a per-hospital basis, the recruitment process is a single state-wide recruitment campaign. A single application will allow you to apply for places at all four hospitals.

These positions would suit energetic, and flexible Occupational Therapists who enjoy a diverse case mix, busy work environment and opportunity to contribute to service development.

The Occupational Therapy Department in each region provides inpatient services to all acute and sub-acute wards including emergency medical, surgical, paediatrics and rehabilitation. The Department also provide services to outpatient clinics, district hospitals and community-based programs.  These roles require working with a person-centred approach to promote, develop and provide high quality evidence based occupational therapy services.

These positions also offer the opportunity to rotate through all areas learning as you go, supported by preceptors and supervising staff. Alternatively, some positions offer the opportunity to specialise in a specific area of service delivery. Our Occupational Therapists are provided with regular education sessions, access to funding sources for CPD and strong professional and social networks.
