Occupation Matters welcomes all enquiries from occupational therapists for part-time, full-time and contract roles across Melbourne.

Who we are:

Occupation Matters is a mobile occupational therapy service, supporting adults (18+ years) with disabilities, injuries, and illness in northern and western Melbourne and via telehealth around Australia.

Our core business is comprehensive functional assessments for people with complex psychosocial disabilities and conditions under NDIS. We also provide physical and functional assessments for other insurers and Medicolegal purposes throughout Australia.

Additionally, we provide occupational therapy solutions for assistive technology, work transition and work participation, and occupational coaching for planning life transitions.

We are growing and would love to find the right people to contribute their skills set, and meet our diverse clients’ needs.
