Spinal Cord Injuries Australia (SCIA) is a member-based national for purpose organisation that promotes independence and provides services to people with a spinal cord injury and other physical disabilities to assist them to get 'back on track' and achieve their goals. Working together with our clients, we assist in the elimination of barriers that prevent social inclusion for people with a spinal cord injury and other physical disability, ensuring that the society in which we live is accessible in every way.

SCIA is looking for an outstanding Physiotherapist with a passion for delivering quality neurological rehabilitation programs to join our NeuroMoves Canberra team.

NeuroMoves provides a suite of exercise services for people with neurological conditions. Our specialist program offers the opportunity for people to improve their functional capacity, acquire new skills and prevent secondary health complication. The program’s welcoming, motivating and supportive environment promotes elevated independence and overall health, fitness and well-being.

NeuroMoves is currently operating in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane, Lismore, Adelaide and Perth and our therapist team of 45 is comprised of exercise physiologists and physiotherapists.

The Physiotherapist will work autonomously under the guidance of their supervisor managing a case load of clients with varying neurological conditions. Responsibilities include assessing individual client needs and setting goals accordingly, providing guidance to less experienced staff and preparing reports/plans for clients, medical and health professionals and external funding agencies. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to deliver the full suite of services and become trained in our high specialised program areas such as functional electrical stimulation, activity-based therapy and locomotor training.

This is a fantastically rewarding area of work, with the ability to facilitate meaningful change in the lives of others. You will have the opportunity work with other like-minded therapists and be trained to utilise highly specialised equipment and support networks in supporting your client to achieve their goals.

To succeed in the role, you will have the following experience, attributes and capabilities:

  • Tertiary qualification in Physiotherapy.
  • Registered with Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
  • Proven clinical experience with excellent clinical reasoning skills.

  • Ability to be involved in work of a highly physical nature.

SCIA has a dedicated, supportive and innovative culture and so we are looking for someone who will fit well into our team by having a positive attitude, strong relationship building skills and a passion for improving the circumstances of marginalised and disadvantaged people.

This is a part-time role working 30 hours per week. SCIA offers a flexible, inclusive and friendly work environment and an attractive remuneration package including PBI salary packaging options.

SCIA will provide:

  • An excellent induction and training program as well as ongoing training & support provided to further develop neurological skills
