Healthcare & Medical
Physiotherapy, OT & Rehabilitation
$80,000 – $119,999
Full time

Occupational Therapists (OT) know all too well the importance that Occupation plays in a person’s life but how well do we as OT’s truly adopt those principles. We hear many OT’s are stressed to their eyeballs, working long hours to get that report out, or squeeze that extra client in whilst trying to make ends meet and balance the family work equation. 

At Employer & Disability Health Solutions (EDHS), we recognise that every person has varying life demands and to attract the best talent (besides paying our people well), we as a business must change our thinking and expectations on how “work” is completed. COVID has taught us that there are many ways in which “work” can be done, and our philosophy is that businesses who continue to put the business first will stagnate. Our focus therefore is on the life demands of the people we employ and not the typical spread of hours in which work is done. People in a pre-COVID era required flexibility, but it took a pandemic for businesses (Including ours) to latch onto the concept of what this actually meant. Some people require school hours, others are happy to work a standard 38-hour week and yet again some would prefer to work longer days in return for full pay, but have every Friday off. At EDHS we recognise this and put you in the driver’s seat to determine your own work schedule, one that suits you and your life demands. All options are considered. We truly believe that in the next decade the typical working week will be extinguished and that these “truly” flexible working arrangements will be the future of Occupation and we want to be at the forefront of this movement.

So who are we? We are not an Occ Rehab company! We are all about helping people. We are a small Occupational Therapy (OT) based business in Shepparton and Mildura Victoria who focus on achieving health outcomes for people. This role is based in Shepparton but we believe it can be performed from any of the surrounding towns. We specialise in:

  1. Assisting people to recover from illnesses and injuries by helping them navigate the health system, ensuring that they have access to the best possible treatment at the right time (without those pesky reports that no one reads);
  2. Providing illness and injury prevention services;
  3. Assisting people with a disability identify services that they require to live and work autonomously in the community.

We provide a fun and vibrant work culture for our people with a very attractive remuneration package whilst balancing the work/life equation, allowing you as the expert in your life determine how this work will be completed. 

What are the role requirements?

Every day at EDHS is different but a quick summary of a typical OT day would be:

  • Talking with people who have an injury or disability about their condition(s) and how it impacts on their daily routine;
  • Liaising with our affiliate health partners including General Practitioners, Physiotherapists, Exercise Physiologists, Dieticians etc, to ensure our clients get the right treatment at the right time to maximise their recovery and independence;
  • Identifying solutions to problems to help people with an injury or disability manage in the community;
  • Preparing detailed reports such as Functional Assessment Reports used as a concise “mudmap” to allow other stakeholders to implement your recommendations; 
  • Assisting in the delivery and coordination of a range of corporate training programs;
  • Assisting our customers solve a range of health-related problems impacting their workplaces;
  • Assisting executing our Pre-Employment Screening Services. 

What are the benefits of working at EDHS?

  • We provide the work, you design the schedule on how your work will be done;
  • Family first mentality. Your family should always come first;
