The Best Place to Work as a Paediatric OT
Here at MoveAbout we have a mission to develop ourselves into the ‘Google of Allied Health’, fostering the most supportive and inspiring atmosphere in all of Allied Health and being the leader in clinical excellence.
There are lots of great OT clinicians in Sydney who are in demand, and there are also other well-resourced clinics. We understand both of these things, so we are continually pushing ourselves to be the best workplace in OT, in addition to being the best Paediatric clinic in Australia.
MoveAbout Therapy Services clinics are a place where our Paediatric OTs are engaged and connected to each other, their work, the families they support, and their personal and professional growth. Our work environment is fun, nurturing, inspiring and challenging, with an emphasis on supporting our amazing team who support our wonderful families.
Co-Create Your Career Path
At MoveAbout, we work with you to identify your goals and passions so that we can develop a leadership career path for you within MoveAbout. Being a family run business created by two OTs, there is always support regardless of your level. And being a team 15+ OTs, there is so much support and also scope to lead in your areas of specialty and passion.
Our vision for you is that you can have autonomy in your daily work with the ‘just right’ level of support.
Whether you have experience as a paediatric OT or if that is the next step in your career, you should reach out to us about this role.
Supported & Inspired
You will be supported, inspired and challenged here at MoveAbout through opportunities for clinical reflection, 1:1 mentoring, group mentoring, in-session coaching, peer co-treats, and mentoring with Master Clinicians from the US and Canada, including Kim Barthel, Sheila Frick, Tracy Stackhouse and Beth Osten.
Being an OT at MoveAbout
As an Occupational Therapist at MoveAbout, you will support families and children with delays or disabilities, including children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, behavioural challenges, sensory processing disorders, gross and fine motor difficulties, and children with trauma related difficulties.
You will commence with a small weekly caseload and build your caseload slowly over 4-6 months.
During this time, you’ll get to observe lots of sessions each week and engage in trainings, including our ‘Intro to MoveAbout’ training program. This allows you time to grow and learn the role.
