Let's face it...
We work to live, not live to work. So why not spend your working hours earning a fantastic wage, allowing you to live how you really want?

We are in a unique position in the Wheatbelt - just 2 hrs drive North East of Perth, where we are the only private physio in the district! Since our conception nearly 4 years ago, we've never been able to keep up with the demand. This makes our clients very appreciative of our services, and also makes for a great opportunity for the right person/s.

What can we do for you?
We promise to give you the freedom in your timetable to work when YOU want. This could be 1 day a week DI/DO to earn some extra $$ or a full time position. It could mean living in Moora during the week (rent subsidised by Rural Health West) or it could mean driving up the day/s you'd like.

For the right applicant, we can employ on a permanent full time basis with benefits etc.

We believe that Health Practitioners should practice what they preach. We know that when you feel great, you'll help others to feel great too.

Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a down-to-Earth physio with an adventurous spirit, that likes country drives and is as comfortable treating a 10 year old with a footy injury as they are an 80 year old farmer who was kicked by a horse. This is a predominantly musculoskeletal caseload.

Ability to perform dry-needling would be great - but not necessary. Our clients request it frequently! We offer annual $$ toward PD if you wanted to do your DN course!

As business owners and parents of 3 boys under 6 - we're busy living our lives, too. So the right applicant will need to be self-motivated and happy to work unattended. Micro-managing is so last decade...

We assume if we hear from you, that you are qualified for this position, so please don't worry about a resume. We are keen for you to send us a friendly email telling us about yourself and why you're perfect for this role! Feel free to include any questions you have for us.
