Re: Occupational therapist position

I am writing to apply for the position of occupational therapist at Life Ready, as advertised recently on SEEK.com.au.

I am a motivated and passionate occupational therapist, with a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy, a Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance (Occupational Therapy), and over two years’ experience in an occupational health setting.

In my current role, I am responsible for managing a large case load, working with a wide range of clients in both private practice and hospital settings. I am experienced in performing client and workplace evaluations, including ergonomic, ADL and functional assessments, as well as developing, managing and modifying individual care plans for optimal results.

I have experience in mediating between insurers, employers, unions, GPs and other specialist health practitioners to achieve the best possible health outcomes for the client. I am also responsible for the delivery of injury management training and consulting services to corporate clients, focusing on the minimisation of workplace injury risk and work environment modification.

I am a self-motivated professional who is passionate about caring for clients and getting the best results for their recovery. I possess very strong communication skills and pride myself on my highly developed interpersonal skills, which have allowed me to achieve great results both individually and when working as part of a team.

I am approved by WorkCover to conduct workplace assessments, and I am registered with both Occupational Therapy Australia and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. I hold a current driver’s licence and National Police Clearance.

My resume is attached and I look forward to being able to discuss the position with you further.

Yours sincerely,

Dimi Breckin
