Clinical Leadership

Your NExt Career Move

 Senior Therapist / Subject Matter Expert

 

A message from the team at Kadia: 

Kadia is an established Occupational Therapy Service in the Eastern Region of Melbourne (Head office in Kilsyth). 

Over the last year we have seen exceptional clinical outcomes with an NDIS recommendation acceptance rate in the 90th percentile leading to high client satisfaction rates. 

With increasing demands on our specific skills, our team are ever growing as we provide support for those in the eastern regions of Melbourne. We also provide online services state-wide and are building a strong reputation of providing innovative, client centric support.

“I will never forget the day that I walked into the office, and saw a number of team members working on a unexpected, and last minute review report together. I remember thinking that such support was un-usual, that often workplaces have such time pressure that such collaboration was not possible.  Now I realise – here, it is just the Norm”
