Job Description

Senior Physiotherapist – Community Outreach at Department of Health

Tasmanian Health Service – North West Regional Hospital

To be Tasmanian is to pursue quality over quantity. We create, preserve, and protect the unusual. With quiet confidence, and with passion and perseverance, we pursue the extraordinary. Could you be Tasmanian?

You’ve invested in your leadership and your clinical skills so you can make an impression in your career, advancing the Community Physiotherapy profession and improving the lives of the people you serve. You could put this skillset into practise anywhere.

What’s different about Tasmania is our culture and our lifestyle. You will be encouraged to be yourself, to learn, to grow and to develop meaning in your work. You will have a powerful connection to your patients, and the community will encourage your success. Our isolation helps drive a culture of invention and human connection, which feels both old fashioned and… like the only future worth pursuing. Here you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to breath-taking coastlines, National Parks or award-winning restaurants or bars. After a hard day at work, you don’t have to sit in a car or a train for an hour. You can decompress with a walk along your local beach or put on your boots and go tell it to a mountain.

We are small enough in Tasmania for you to shape and influence your work and make a real impact every day. Yet we are big enough for you to feel part of something important, somewhere you can belong and be surrounded by diversity, innovation, and friendships. Tasmanians are connected to the land where we live, and to the stories of the people who have cared for this place for tens of thousands of years.

There are over 30 of us in our Physiotherapy department working across the North West Region. In this position, you will promote and provide optimal specialist physiotherapy care to community clients at both centre based and in home locations across Primary Health Services North West. You will have a hands-on approach as well as provide consultancy and advisory service.
