Experienced Occupational Therapist | Sydney | NSW

Phone: 1300 852 072
Email: kim.love@interface.com.au
Url: www.interface.com.au

Summary

Are you looking for a change from case management or clinical work? Would you like to use your core OT skills and clinical skills to try something new? We offer full training, flexible hours and working from home, excellent remuneration and challenging work with an employer who cares and supports its valued team.

Experienced OT -  Sydney

 

Interface is a team of Medico-Legal Occupational Therapists that are experts in assessing the care needs of individuals. While we prefer you to have around 10 years of clinical experience, you do not need to be experienced in medico-legal assessments – we have a tried and true onboarding process that will have you up and running! If you are in two minds about making a change, we can start you off with some trial assessments to see if Med Legal work is the right fit for you and your lifestyle.

 

This role is for you if:

  • You are willing to travel. Assessments are mainly in the greater Sydney region, but there can be travel throughout NSW and occasionally interstate.
  • You can work autonomously. Most of the work is home-based and you will be given the autonomy to manage your own work hours (outside client assessment times).
  • You are looking for flexible work hours. Many of our team members balance part-time clinical work in a hospital setting; others balance the demands of a family.
  • You want to grow professionally and learn from other OTs. Our experience has shown that great medico-legal OTs come from a range of clinical areas and put a high value on professional development.
  • You are curious! Curiosity is one of the most valued attributes of our team. We are genuinely interested in the people we assess and what impacts their lives.
  • You enjoy report writing. To really succeed and love medico-legal work, report writing is an invaluable skill. You must be able to write a report that is supported by evidence (clinical and research) and, at the same time, is easily understood by its readers.

 

What is involved in each assessment?

  • A thorough review of all available medical information
  • Assessing the individual’s functional capacity in their home environment
  • Writing a detailed report that comments on an individual’s reasonable and necessary past, present and future equipment/treatment/care needs, as well as providing an opinion as to how a claimant can restore functional independence
  • Potentially attending court as an expert witness

 

To apply, or if you would like any more information, call Kim Love on 1300 852 072 or email kim.love@interface.com.au
