Occupational Therapists 

 
     

Occupational_Therapy.jpgOccupational Therapists within Auckland District Health Board (ADHB) are employed within interdisciplinary teams in a variety of settings. The settings include Mental Health and Physical Health services for child, youth, adults and older people.
 
Due to our large and comprehensive range of services, ADHB seeks to recruit Occupational Therapists of all experience levels on a regular basis.  New graduates have the opportunity to join our rotational programmes where they are closely supported and supervised in their first professional year. Exciting opportunities for career development will challenge and develop your professional and clinical skills, as well as your knowledge and critical thinking as an Occupational Therapist in the following practice areas.
 
Mental Health Settings

  • Community Services including: Child and Youth, Adult and Older People’s Health, Day Programmes, Early Intervention and Trans-cultural services
  • Specialist Services including: Eating Disorders; Maternal Mental Health and Neuro-behavioural Services, Maori and Pacific Island Health
  • Inpatient Services including: Child and Youth; Adults; Older People and Residential Recovery Programmes 

Physical Health Settings

  • Community Services including: Child and Youth, Adult and Older People’s Health, and Day Programmes (e.g. Rehab Plus,  A+ Home Health Links; Mobility Solutions)
  • Adult Services including: Neurology, Medical, Orthopaedic, Oncology, Cardiology, Respiratory Rehabilitation, Oncology and Pain Clinic
  • Child & Youth Inpatient and Community Services including: Community Child Development Team, Starship Children’s Hospital (acute care and outpatient clinics) and Paediatric Liaison 

Both the above practice contexts have a commitment to supporting staff in their professional development consisting of regular internal and external training and professional networking opportunities.  Supervision is valued and supported by the organisation, at both managerial and professional levels.  Interprofessional learning and practice is also emphasised.  We have working relationships with the occupational therapy schools and staff are actively encouraged to offer undergraduate occupational therapy student placements.
 
Under the Health Practitioner Competence Assurance Act (HPCAA) 2003 Occupational Therapists need to be registered and have a current Annual Practicing Certificate and if necessary staff are supported to achieve this.  Performance planning and appraisal systems are integrated with the Occupational Therapy Board New Zealand’s Continuing Competency Framework.
