Do you have a passion to support children with disabilities and their families? As the physiotherapist you will work within the Mango Tree Centre based in Tonga.
The Centre requires a skilled paediatric therapist to consolidate and build on child assessment and treatment skills, in order for the centre to provide quality, sustainable therapy services and support to children with disabilities and their families.
In this role you will be expected to build the capacity of the host organisation by increasing the staffs' ability to accurately assess children and implement individualised therapy plans. You will also engage families to ensure therapy will continue in the home setting as well as upskill the staff in wheelchair and equipment provisions as required by the children. Through these activities you will assist staff with the development and management of client information systems, policies and procedures.
Through your work at the Mango Centre you will ultimately improve the quality of life for children with disabilities and their families in the Nuku'alofa region.
