The Child Development Service is a team of experienced Allied Health therapists who work with children and their families who live in the Coastal Otago region. We are a child and family focussed service and as such we work in either centre or community settings.

The Child Development Service (Vera Hayward Centre) is based at Dunedin Hospital which is centrally located in Dunedin City. For those of you who love the outdoors, we have beaches and tramping tracks located within minutes of the city and are easily accessed.

We currently have a permanent position available for a NZ registered Physiotherapist with a passion for working with children aged 0-16 years and their families/whanau.

We are looking for someone who holds registration with the Physiotherapy Board of New Zealand and a current APC and NZ full Drivers Licence.

This position would suit a Physiotherapist with a minimum of 4 years work experience. We are looking for an enthusiastic therapist who has had Physiotherapy work experience in Paediatrics and/or Neuro- rehabilitation who would like to consolidate or develop their Paediatric skill set. It would be preferable if you have had experience with Wheelchair and Seating assessments within your previous practice.

You will need to have excellent communication skills to enable you to liaise with hospital specialists, children and their families, education services and build strong links within the wider allied health team.

In this role you'll have the opportunity to use your clinical reasoning skills, excellent time management, communication and problem solving skills in an outpatient clinic or community setting.
