Here's how we can bring balance back to your life
Physiotherapy Position 28/10/19
Are you are a new graduate or experienced physio looking for your next career move?
Is this you?
You are a physio who enjoys working in private practice - but feel like you are missing something. Perhaps it is a greater challenge, a career pathway, wanting to feel part of a team or want to work in an inspiring physical environment.
You enjoy being busy problem solving by thinking outside of the box.
You enjoy sharing your wins with your team.
You are engaging and popular with your clients but also within your community and amongst your peers.
You may be considering how you could progress your career or further your studies in clinical or business roles.
You might even be considering reducing your working week to find better life balance.
You realise that the responsibility for keeping your diary full is a shared one and are willing to look for ways to nurture your referral base of your ideal client.
You don't discharge patients after one session, or use language like "just see how it goes".
You want the best results for your patients, and you are prepared to do whatever it takes to help them achieve their goals.
You realise the success of treatment involves your ability to listen well and communicate in a flexible way depending on the individual in front of you.

Launceston is just a hop to the snow for skiing on Ben Lomond in winter.

The position description..

We are flexible as to your preferred appointment length, and will customise your appointment delivery to your preference/ideal client. We usually allow 45 minutes for an initial and 30 minutes for a follow up consult, ensuring you have time to listen as well as treat.
We treat with a combination of well informed advice, manual techniques and exercise therapy and expect that you will too.

You are resilient-you step up when things get tough.
A remuneration package which rewards your efforts based on your performance.
