Seeking Occupational Therapist

If you are a motivated Occupational Therapist who enjoys working with technology and is wanting to join a specialist team, then this position could be for you.

The TalkLink Trust is currently seeking expressions of interest from experienced Occupational Therapists who have, or wish to gain, advanced skills in the area of assistive technology.

We have two full-time positions coming up in our Auckland office. One is a permanent role and the other is one-year contract to cover parental leave. An extension to the fixed term role may also be possible.

The TalkLink Trust provides specialist services in Assistive Technology/Augmentative and Alternative Communication throughout New Zealand. TalkLink works with both adults and children who experience difficulty with spoken and/or written communication.

The successful applicant will work as a member of a skilled and supportive inter-disciplinary team and will focus on technology access, assessment and training. A high level of interpersonal and organisation skills are essential. A degree in occupational therapy, or equivalent qualification and current registration by NZROT is required. Experience in the area or practical technical competencies are preferred. On the job training and support will be provided.

The role is based in Auckland, with offices in pleasant surroundings at the UNITEC Institute of Technology. Regular travel is necessary so applicants must have a full driver’s licence. Periodic out of town travel is also required, so applicants will need to be available for occasional overnight stays. Experience in working with people from different cultures is desirable. The TalkLink Trust is committed to honouring the articles of Te Tiriti O Waitangi.

If you feel this role is a good match for you, please submit a cover letter along with a current copy of your curriculum vitae with the names of at least two referees.
