We are always looking for experienced and compassionate paraprofessionals to join our growing team.
Our main office and clinic is near Dufferin and Steeles, which has a full Physiotherapy Clinic and rooms for other treatment and meetings. However, most of our work involves assessment and treatment in the home, workplace or school, in person or virtual.
Hours are flexible and salary is competitive.
At NRS, we can offer you the best of both worlds
Like a sole practitioner, you will have full flexibility in terms of:
- Work hours – from one or two clients to augment your current practice to full time work, with coverage for extended leave of absence for periods throughout the year (e.g. for those who wish to work only summers or not at all in the summer)
- Age of client- pediatric, adolescent or adults
- Location of work- as we service the GTA, all of Southern Ontario and have a growing number of clients in Northern Ontario.
As well, like an employee of a large organization, you will enjoy:
- A steady flow of referrals
- Administrative support for reporting, invoicing, billings etc.
- Being part of a well respected multi-disciplinary team
- Access to skilled Rehab Coaches to carry out programs under your supervision
- Ongoing professional development opportunities (including access to clinical supervision and training, conferences, opportunities to participate in research etc.).
