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.
Lead the Team
At MoveAbout, you can be a leader while receiving ‘just the right level’ of support you need. Being a family run business created by two OTs, there is always support regardless of your level.
Our vision for you is that you can lead the team and run the clinic with autonomy. Yet that doesn’t have to be straight away. You can start as an OT Clinical Team Leader, supervising and mentoring, and progress to being the Clinical Manager.
Whether you have experience leading a team or if that is the next step in your career, you should reach out to us about this role.
Be Inspired & Inspire
You will be 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.
As Clinical Manager, you will develop the clinical excellence of your team through weekly 1:1 mentoring, group mentoring and in-session coaching.
As the Clinical Lead and Senior Occupational Therapist located at Bella Vista, you will manage a team of 7 Occupational Therapists and support the families that access our services.
You will support our team of OTs with their caseloads which include young children with delays or disabilities, including children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and children with trauma related difficulties. You will have the opportunity to maintain a small caseload through weekly therapy or intensive therapy (client attends 5-10 days in a row).
You will be supported by the Directors who are Occupational Therapists and have run this successful business for 14 years. This allows you time to grow and learn within the leadership role, receiving both therapeutic and business-related mentoring.
You will support the Directors to identify areas of development and training for the therapeutic staff.
You will have the opportunity to grow into a Clinical Manager with autonomy to run the practice while having therapeutic and management support always available when needed.
