Senior Consultant: Psychologist / Rehab Counsellor / OT Strive Occupational Rehabilitation


The Organisation: Strive Occupational Rehabilitation (ARPA Accredited)


We’ve been helping people rebuild lives and reconnect to work through health and wellbeing outcomes since 2004. We believe that people are the centre of every organisation, and when people feel connected at work, they thrive. Our mission is to help individuals and teams bring out the best in themselves, their colleagues and the organisation. And we do this every day by taking a different approach to occupational rehabilitation: we’re not just returning people to work, we’re helping them thrive in the workplace. 

Strive is an equal opportunity employer supporting a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our workplace culture is enriched by differences in ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age and family arrangements. We encourage applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. 

Our company is built on values of integrity, respect for others and a commitment to quality health and wellbeing outcomes.
