    ABI Community Services has an opportunity for a Physiotherapist with experience in paediatrics. We are a leader in the field of brain injury rehabilitation in NZ and an accredited provider of community based rehabilitation for children and adults with a range of conditions including brain injury, neuro-developmental challenges, cerebral palsy, multi-trauma, cognitive and sensory issues.

    Key clinical roles include rehabilitation of clients to facilitate return to pre-injury activities, or to achieve their developmental potential, including provision of any equipment needs and training of family and other carers. We have a strong client and family/ whanau focus.
    Our base is in Massey, however we see our clients in the community setting across the wider Auckland region in homes, schools/ kindy, and other relevant settings.
    You would be working in a supportive multi-disciplinary team environment alongside occupational therapists, speech-language therapists, clinical psychologists, dietitians, registered nurses and social workers. We can offer you excellent opportunities for paediatric professional development. You would also have the opportunity to contribute to rehabilitation service planning and promotion, training and development of fellow team members, and clinical research.

    The successful applicant will have a Bachelor of Health Science- Physiotherapy (or equivalent) and a minimum of two years’ experience (paediatric experience preferred).

    We require a high standard of work and in return offer you excellent opportunities for professional development and a great team environment. We are committed to our staff and offer flexible working hours.
