    Hi all!

     

    I'm an Occupational Therapist and will be looking for hospital based work in Adelaide from mid November. I've got all my registration sorted, just need to get a job now!

     

    Does anyone know of any good websites that I should look at?

     

    Thanks

    You will be laughing occupational therapists are in demand. I would approach the hospitals directly or try seek.com.au. I work for a community based company that are always wanting OT's

    Hi Karyn,

     

    I am a fellow OT and as already mentioned I dont think you will be short of work, the only thing that tends to be tricky is finding someone to supervise your 6 months practice audit assessment period.

     

    SA Health is the best site for Hospital based Jobs, OT's can carry out workcover assessments here so plenty of opportunities in that area, or if you want to locum Wellness and Lifestyles and Therapy Solutions are large providers.

     

    Best of luck!

    Ohhh kaz you better get moving, first phase desktop reg is straight foward but does take about 4-8 weeks....second stage is a nightmare though and a real pain to get jobs, as you have to have a job with insurance to get reg but need to have reg to get a job!!! :arghh: what happened to me was my work SA gave me a temp contaract to get limited registration then you have to conduct a practice audit with the OT COUNCIL (which is not the ot board) over the next 12 months before they (OT BOARD) will grant you full registration, if you let this slip at anytime ie dont get all paperwork in on time etc they pull your reg and you cannot not work.

     

    Its not too difficult but wish someone had explained it to me first as it take me a while to get it all sorted, im now half way through my audit and working :)

     

    Occupational Therapy Council (Aust & NZ) Inc. For you 1st stage audit and 2nd stage audit

     

    Occupational Therapy Board of SA - Home Page For your registration

     

    Hope this helps pm me if you need more help.
