About us

Able Australia is a leading provider of disability services across Tasmania, Victoria, the ACT and South East Queensland. For over 50 years we have been delivering innovative support services to people with multiple disabilities and deafblindness. As a registered provider of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), our vision is to enable the people we support to live the life they choose.

Committed to the values of Trust, Respect, Excellence and Kindness, we provide high quality supports that reflect evidence-based best practice. We strive to ensure our clients live better days, every day.

About the Role

Are you a professional, keen to make your mark, have the ability to work in a creative environment and would enjoy the opportunity to work with our Centre of Excellence?

We are looking for a compassionate and dedicated Occupational Therapist to join our growing and newly formed Allied Health team. As the successful candidate, you will be working three days per week as part of a fast moving and highly skilled team to provide Occupational Therapy services to adults with disability.

This opportunity is ideal for someone who is interested in further developing their skills in working with people with sensory disabilities. We will offer you a supportive team environment, salary packaging and Auslan training.

As a valued part of the team, you will also receive ongoing mentoring, support and professional development that will lead you to start taking on a caseload of people with deafblindness. You don’t have to have a specialisation in this area before you join us, as this is something we will guide and support you through. You will learn both from highly skilled and experienced colleagues as well as through more formalised training.

If you are someone who is people focused, goal oriented, passionate about finding solutions and takes pride in building and maintaining strong and positive professional partnerships, we would love to hear from you.

If you have any questions, or want to check if this role could be the right fit for you, please don't hesitate to email or call Clare Humphries, National Head Allied Health & Behaviour Support, 0402 369 529 or clare.humphries@ableaustralia.org.au
