Sensational Kids is 11 years young and going strong. It is a company based on strong values of integrity, learning, fun, professionalism and innovation. We are an energetic, creative and skilled team and are looking for motivated, friendly and talented Occupational Therapists to join our team.
We see kids aged 0-18 and provide child and family-centred therapy incorporating a range of therapeutic models including DIR Floortime well as other models for best practice.
We would love if you are available to work on Saturdays (but this isn't a deal breaker) as we have high demand for these appointments. We also need you for 1-3 days during the week. You will be part of a brilliant team of Speech Pathologists, OTs, Psychologists, Dietitians and Music Therapists.
As an OT on our team you will provide assessment and treatment of children and adolescents, and support/ training for parents. That’s our bread and butter. You may also be obliged to eat cupcakes if it’s someone’s birthday, attend our awesome end of year party or the many social events we run throughout the year (we have some mean lawn bowlers in the team and even better wine and cheese connoisseurs!) or take part in our whole team training days or frequent PDs.
If this sounds like your cup of tea (or coffee - we don’t discriminate) we’d love to hear from you.

A warm and friendly team environment with social outings, regular chocolate and a couple of parties thrown in (ie lots of fun)
Client referrals and ongoing provision of clients for a caseload (the work is varied and challenging - keeps it interesting)
Complete administration support including booking of appointments, management of timetables, invoicing and accounts (we help with all the annoying stuff)

A very well-equipped therapy environment (so much equipment we don’t know what to do with it!)
Good remuneration based on experience (we like people to be happy)
Computers, stationery, assessment & therapy equipment as required (easy access to the things that make your job easier)
Therapy assistants across the team to help with resources, support or admin
Main Duties and Responsibilities:
