Practice Information: The practice is a dynamic and fast-growing clinic. The demand for Physiotherapy in Bowen has simply been extraordinary since the clinic’s establishment in 2019. Being a regional location there is a low concentration of local healthcare services and specialities; consequently, the variety of clientele is fantastic, ranging daily from simple musculoskeletal injuries through to complex, community based Neurological care. Bowen Physiotherapy also offer pre-employment and corporate services. We are passionate about serving the Bowen community by providing high quality, primary healthcare services.
We’re currently seeking a physiotherapist to join our team in a full-time permanent role. As our new physiotherapist, you’ll have a strong commitment to high profession standards and demonstrate empathy for the needs of our varied client base. We’ll provide a supportive team environment where you’ll work side-by-side with the Practice director who is a full-time physiotherapist and be supported by our yoga instructor & admin support team.
Working at the practice will provide you with a varied and stimulating caseload, growth opportunities and the stability and support of a dedicated small team environment. If you are a new graduate, don’t let the variety sway you – we can manage your caseload to meet your strengths. Whatever your desires are as a clinician, Bowen Physiotherapy is the ideal place for you to work and grow.
