Positions Vacant: Occupational Therapist and/or Physiotherapist

Position: Occupational Therapist and/or Physiotherapist

Country: Timor-Leste

Length of placement: 1 year +

Start Date: July 2011

An Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist is sought by one of Palms’ Dili-based partner organisations.

Our partner organisation provides support to people with disabilities, including service and equipment provision, training to people with disabilities and their families in areas such as Community Based Rehabilitation.

The volunteers will work closely with two Timorese intern physiotherapists who are working towards acquiring their full qualification. Both require significant input, support and mentoring from an experienced therapist to ensure they can undertake all tasks required independently within 6-9 months of supervision.

We provide pre-departure preparation, flights, accommodation, a basic living allowance, personal and professional support during placement and re-entry assistance on return home. Applicants will need to attend an orientation course prior to placement.
