The feeling of your feet striking the pavement. The joy of dancing around when you hear your favourite song. The knowledge that you can eat, sleep and move with independence.
Many people take these things for granted. But not you. You have seen firsthand what's it's like on the other side. You've honed your skills and experience. And now, you're ready to make a real difference.
You are a Physiotherapist. For some people, this means shin splints and ACL recovery. Not you. You want variety; new and interesting cases within a community setting. You especially don't want to be limited to the four walls of a clinic setting.
Sound like you? We have the perfect opportunity for you!
