About Monash Health 

As the largest public healthcare services provider in Victoria, Monash Health provides integrated health care services available to over 1.3 million people, representing 32% of the population of greater Melbourne.  We are one of only four accredited Academic Health Science Centres in Australia and in early 2017 we opened a new 230 bed dedicated Children’s Hospital, co-located with Monash Medical Centre, Clayton. 

Our Integrated Community Health Team (ICHT) is part of our Community Services Directorate and conducts a wide variety of health related activities, from screening through to managing chronic conditions.  We are now looking for an experienced Podiatrist to join our Living Well team covering parental leave until 31 January 2019, ideally working four days a week between Monday and Friday. 

About the Role 

Our ICHT team uses a multidisciplinary approach in its work with clients who have a range of chronic diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular and respiratory disease.  Based in the Greater Dandenong and Cranbourne area, our clients may not be readily engaged with health services and may also have insecure housing arrangements.

Working within a multidisciplinary model of care, you will provide individual podiatry treatment including assessments, reviews and care plans.  Providing patient centred care, this will include general podiatry biomechanics and delivering some group-based education, aimed at enhancing independence and improving health outcomes for our clients. 

About you

You enjoy the ability to work autonomously within your scope, while making a positive contribution to the further development of the service.  You are a genuinely passionate and caring person and you are highly committed to delivering exceptional care. 

You have:

  • Current AHPRA registration as a Podiatrist and experience using self-management approaches to client care
  • Demonstrated ability to work both independently and effectively within a team
  • A keen eye for identifying new and better ways of doing things
  • Proven ability to meet operational and project targets 
  • Well-developed interpersonal, organisational and delegation skills

From a clinical perspective, you can demonstrate experience undertaking assessments, developing and coordinating care plans and delivering group-based self management education programs.  You have worked with socially and economically disadvantaged communities and you understand and practice the social model of health. 

 A current Driver's Licence and regular access to a reliable vehicle are also required.

In return

You'll work in a team comprising a range of allied health professionals, that works effectively and collaboratively together.  The team is well supported and recognised for the good work that they do.  This role provides the opportunity to make a real contribution to improving the health of adults living with chronic health conditions. 

In addition, as an employee of the largest public health service in Victoria, you will have access to benefits including salary packaging options that increase your take-home pay, onsite staff car parking and gym and a generous Employee Assistance Program.

Monash Health recognises the value of equal employment opportunity and is committed to promoting fairness, equity and diversity in the workplace.  Any offer of employment will be confirmed on the successful outcome of a Police Check and Working with Children’s Check.  

 Please note that applications will only be accepted via the Monash Health Mercury System only and we are unable to accept email applications.
