Join Us

Come and join our growing team in an incredibly rewarding role where you will be highly valued by your clients, your team members and your community. 

We are a growing paediatric therapy service based in Mackay, on the east coast of Central Queensland.  We offer our therapists a highly supportive working environment, where you get to work alongside other passionate and experienced therapists and are supported to follow your passion for paediatrics with long-term opportunities for growth within our team.  We truly care about our team members and want to see them happy and successful in their clinical practices and in life.

Our Service

We provide friendly, high quality, and holistic therapy services for children of all ages and abilities, from babies to adolescents and young adults.  We provide both clinic and community-based services, and have strong links and collaborate frequently with other local and statewide paediatric services.  We are passionate about our mission of ‘Helping children to move and play to the best of their ability’.

The Positions

We have opportunities available for enthusiastic physiotherapists and occupational therapists to join our team.  Full time or part time positions available.

Our Community

Mackay is a regional city located on the coast of Central Queensland, with 15 different beaches located within a 5-30 minute drive of the city heart.  To the North of Mackay is Airlie Beach and the Whitsunday Islands (approx 1.5-hour drive), and to the West is the Eungella National Park (1-hour drive) which provides a great location for exploring bushwalking and camping.  Mackay is a large enough town so that it’s community does not miss out on the city perks such as major shows and sporting events, festivals and many community supports, but is also small enough to be friendly and welcoming.

Move and Play Paediatric Therapy has built a strong reputation in the Mackay community and we have positive relationships with family doctors, local paediatricians, the local hospital, and most importantly, parent word-of-mouth.  We love where we live, love connecting with our community, and love providing community support to children and families in the Mackay and surrounding communities.
