Are you a passionate paediatric allied health professional?

  • 2 mins

Working with children, and young people, is no doubt one of the most important and rewarding roles within the disability and health sectors. Paediatric allied health can help children to develop their physical, social, and mental capabilities, as well as assist and educate their parents and caregivers to help develop environments where they can thrive.

Paediatric allied health can pose challenges and complexities, but it also comes with some of the most rewarding outcomes. The skills that you can build with young clients will be used and developed by them throughout their life.

If you are a new allied health professional or an experienced therapist, you might be interested to know that HenderCare’s quality SA Allied Health team is looking to recruit a:

Don’t just take our word for it, Senior Occupational Therapist, Alice, explains why she enjoys working with Paediatric clients as a HenderCare employee:

“Working in Paediatrics is so broad, and at HenderCare you get the opportunity to find and peruse your niche areas of interest.

We have the opportunity to work with so many amazing children and their families, and even if it’s for a short time, we are so lucky to share a small part of their life and help them feel more confident and supported to be themselves.”

Alice also added that it’s important to remember that ‘Paediatrics’ doesn’t always refer to young children.

“People sometimes forget Paediatrics is not just younger children but includes those up to 18 years. We have an amazing opportunity to see growth and development over many different life stages and celebrate so many different wins”.

If you have passion, drive, are client outcome-focused and believe you would be a good fit for the HenderCare team, please contact or call 1300 764 433.
