CAREER PATHWAYS

Administrative and clinical career pathways

Upon graduation, after many years of study, we understand that you want to get the most out of your clinical training. We also appreciate that the physiotherapy industry generally lacks the ability to provide talented and motivated individuals structured pathways for career progression. Recognising this, at Back In Motion Health Group we've designed a structured career pathway allowing you to get the most out of your physiotherapy education and experience to date.

No matter where you are in your career, whether you're just starting out, fresh from university or have had experience in another area of physiotherapy or private practice, take a look at our career pathways model. Excitingly we invite talented and committed clinical and non-clinical staff the opportunity to explore practice ownership under our model. The Head Start Pathway is one of many ways we make this opportunity accessible to our staff.

To find out more about our job opportunities and career pathways, contact us on 1300 859 581 or people@backinmotion.com.au

Below is a simplified career pathway model for both physiotherapists and administration staff.

Physiotherapist and Director

Back In Motion Hawthorn

What are the three best things about being part of the Back In Motion Health Group?
  • 1. The model. It works.
  • 2. Having the specialised staff at the National Support Office assist in the areas of marketing, website and social media, and business development help grow our businesses. They have a bird's eye view of multiple businesses and can provide guidance that you just can't get on your own.
  • 3. The support of other directors - both from a clinical resources perspective, but also a business and social. It leads to camaraderie and constructive competition that's both enjoyable and builds accountability.
How has Back In Motion assisted your personal and professional development?

I have learnt a great deal from being in the franchise not just through the formal programs, but informally through knowing so many intelligent and helpful people. This includes the National Support Office staff as well as other directors nationally.

What does Back In Motion offer that other employers don't?

All of the above!

Plus, SOS Health Foundation which was founded by Back In Motion founder, Jason Smith, has given me a platform to give back to the community by providing voluntary physiotherapy services to those in need. I've grown to see that being significant is more rewarding than being successful. This has lead me to see my work and career in a different light.

What are the most rewarding aspects of your job?

Helping clients strive for optimal physical health. Not just from the point of view of aiding them with pain relief but also helping them improve their lives and relationships by being healthier and fitter. We help people enjoy life, and that is a very rewarding thing for me too.

  • 3. You feel supported and guided with a comprehensive framework of people and systems.

What are the three best things about being part of the Back In Motion Health Group?
  • 1. The team - Team culture is highly valued in our clinic. This has created a group that I love working with and have made lifelong friends since starting with.

  • 3. Highest quality care given to clients, creating better outcomes.
How has Back In Motion assisted your personal and professional development?

Since working at Back In Motion, I have completed 3 times as many PD hours than I did with my previous private practice role.
Not only clinical skills as a physiotherapist, but I had the opportunity to develop leadership skills to help reach my personal goals in and out of the clinic as well.

What does Back In Motion offer that other employers don't?

Back In Motion provide flexibility in my role with work hours and the opportunity to treat more of the clients that I want to treat. I have found that my director prioritises the well-being of his employees. He makes it a priority to spend time with me and regularly discuss how I'm going and my personal and professional goals to help me feel more satisfied within my role.

What are the most rewarding aspects of your job?

Attaining long term results for my clients and making meaningful connections with clients and peers.
