WANTED: Fantastic physiotherapist to join an awesome team!
Tired of treating necks and backs all day?
Ready for a tree change and some fresh country air?
Look no further – Good Country Physiotherapy has the job for you!
We are looking for a full-time permanent physiotherapist to join our team in the Limestone Coast of South Australia, commencing immediately.
The position is based in Naracoorte with two days per week at the coastal town of Kingston SE. The working hours can be flexible and there is an option to work 0.8FTE or 0.9FTE by negotiation.
Naracoorte is a town with a population of over 5500 people. It is home to the World Heritage Naracoorte Caves, nearby Ramsar-listed wetland of international significance, Bool Lagoon and has its very own swimming lake! It is known as the heart of the Limestone Coast, midway between Adelaide and Melbourne and within close proximity to the world famous Coonawarra wine region, the historic port of Robe, the second biggest city in South Australia Mount Gambier and the Grampians National Park just over the border in Victoria.
Ideally, you will have at least one years’ experience in a private practice or general hospital setting, and/or possess some rural experience. The role requires an ability to work autonomously, although comprehensive support and training are provided. As travel is a requirement of the job, a drivers’ license and own car are essential.
The caseload is a large mix of musculoskeletal outpatients with approximately one day of occupational health physiotherapy per week. It is desirable but not essential to have some pilates, dry needling and occupational physiotherapy experience. The opportunity to work with sports teams outside of normal hours is also available to interested applicants.
This is a chance to join a team of six physiotherapists with over 60 years of combined experience. You will work in close association with our Naracoorte-based Practice Principal, who is a past Olympic physiotherapist with a Masters in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy and a Masters in Sports Physiotherapy.
We offer a supportive team environment with regular paid professional development onsite, a professional development fund for offsite courses and fortnightly mentoring from senior physiotherapists. We have a close working relationship with local and city-based doctors, medical specialists and other health professionals, ensuring best care can be provided to our patients.
Accommodation is available in Naracoorte and assistance with relocation is negotiable.
The position has a starting salary of $85,000FTE, depending on experience and qualifications.
