The Australian Physiotherapy Association have just relaxed their registration process for Irish and UK trained physios, making it easier than ever to work in paradise!
Wellness Embodied is a boutique physiotherapy practice in Cairns, Far North Queensland, owned by 2006 TCD graduate Suzanne Rath. We have friendly clients, a great city centre location and a small rehab gym with weights, clinical Pilates, vestibular rehab and biofeedback equipment. Our current three physiotherapists see a diverse range of clients in line with our clinical interests- these include complex pains, whiplash, headache and migraines, neurological rehab (MS and post stroke) and vestibular rehabilitation. We have scope to expand into further areas, including Women's Health, to facilitate the clinical interests of our staff. We also have a contract with remote communities in the Northern Territory, which offers unique travel and work opportunities for interested physios.
Cairns is a tropical paradise with a population of approx 150,000 and is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. Cost of living and ease of travel is far superior to major cities like Sydney and Melbourne. Described as 'where the rainforest meets the reef', there is something for everyone here: every major sport (including year-round Triathlon), new performing Arts Centre, multiple festivals yearly, scuba diving, waterfalls, camping and an international airport with excellent connections to Japan, Singapore, Bali, PNG and China (as well as all major Australian cities).
As a growing practice, we have roles available on a rolling basis from October 2019. We can accept physiotherapists on limited registration (and have previously had physiotherapists on supervised practice plans). We can also accept physiotherapists on working holiday visas, with a view to sponsorship. Your position would depend on your experience. For new graduates, we have a comprehensive new grad development plan which includes longer initial appointments and daily teaching time. Our clients are mainly private, with growing numbers of MS and post stroke rehab clients attending under the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
Above award salary and opportunity to earn bonuses and extra income on commission and through remote work as desired.
4 weeks annual leave per year plus the opportunity to take unpaid leave by agreement.
A roster to suit your lifestyle. Our clinic operates between 7.30am- 6pm and we strive to facilitate reasonable requests of staff who need to train or other personal activities on certain days.
Enviable CPD budget, inservice training time, personal and professional development opportunities.
The opportunity for physiotherapists established in our practice to progress their career according to their areas of interest, as well as their individual personal needs (e.g. increased income, increased flexibility, lifestyle, etc.).
