    Jobs for mature ( older) people

    Hello all, the are Australian employers who are open to hiring mature workers. The organisation (Life Insurance) I work for in Brisbane has a diversity policy and proactively employs older workers. Roles include Admin, Claims Managers, IT, change management, finance, payroll and customer service. Worth exploring employers advertising a diversity policy. Good luck.

    Occupational Therapist needs advice

    Hello Yang it would be helpful if you outlined your nephews experience and which state he intends to move to. As a previous post mentioned, target rural areas.

    Occupational Therapist needs advice

    Hello Deanne It probably depends on your OT skill base. You could be supervised within context of an injury management company. You could work as a rehab case manager for Employment Service or A Not for Profit...or for an insurance company. There are options. If you would like to PM me feel free.

    Confused, stressed and feeling sick!

    Hi PaddyMacs. I understand where you are at and feeling 'cold feet'. No one can make the decision for you as only you know your family circumstances. The first 12 months abroad is hard work in my opinion on many fronts. One option is to not sell everything; rent your house, stick things in storage, organise a sabbatical from work, travel light and just plan to work and live abroad for a defined period such as 12 months or 24 months. Treat it like families who sail around the world for a year or two and live abroad, a grown up working holiday. An enrichment experience. If you love it down the track rethink your plans. If your parents are up for it, they could come and join in as well for a period.

    Any young couples in brisbane/brisbane bayside??

    Hi, we live in Wynnum North with kids, it is very family oriented. W ynnum is very quiet of an evening. Manly has slightly more action. Joining in some of the local sporting activities would be your best bet. There is a free community fitness programme on Wynnum Esplanade during the week contact Kris Fleming 0458002959. There is an adult swim club at Manly Pool (early morning) and a Triathlon club. There is a 'walkers groups on the Esplanade' check this out via Wynnum Facebook page or Meetup website; Park Run happens every Sat morning 7am at the end of Wynnum Wading pool (register online), Wednesday afternoon Go Sailing (WAGS) is free sailing at Manly Yacht Club - you would be crew and novice or skilled is welcome. The Bayside PCYC has facilities and classes for adults as well as kids. This includes squash courts, gym, martial arts classes. There is adult touch rugby and league (Bayside Bugs), softball, netball etc etc If you look at the local Wynnum Quest newspaper you will see there are free trial kayaking and sailing events held for kids and adults. Thorneside has a canoe club on Tingalpa creek / river. Sleeman Sports Complex Chandler - adult badminton Wed nights. Wynnum library has evening events (poetry/ writers / bookclub). You can check out this an other local events on the Brisbane City Council website. We know younger folk who go to the Wynnum Manly Leagues club, it does cater well for all ages and decent drink prices. The Manly Hotel probably the widest range of music on and dance area and I see quite a few 20/30 somethings involved. The Wynnum Manly Trailer Boat Club has some music and charity events. The other option is to join in some of the charity and volunteer organisations this could include Coastguard, Red Cross etc Food for thought?
  11. Hello, Seeking some help from any OTs out there who have been through the AHPRA process. I am having difficulty formulating case studies...I have printed out 4 anonymous reports that I have completed over the past couple of years and then attached a theoretical framework comment. Just wondered what other people did. Also what did you list for clinical reasoning? Any advice or some samples would be gratefully received as I seem to be getting bogged down in the detail.... thank you
  12. Any examples of what people put down and how much detail for Clinical Procedural skills on the APHRA CV would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Temporary rental in Wynum/Manley west area

    Hi Mike, It won't matter if you stay in the city and just drive to Wynnum until you find somewhere or stay at a holiday park. Motels will be expensive. I would use the suggestions already listed on the PIO forum where other people stayed more centrally in Brisbane until you sort a long term rental. I just moved to Wynnum North with my family. We had planned to move Northside Brisbane however OH found it too built up, plus he is into sailing. Due to the Port motorway and Gateway Bridge, Wynnum North is only 15 minutes to Ascot where I have a family member. It is 25 mins drive into the city. Here are some options, I have not seen the rooms however I would expect the Anchor to be reasonable. The Waterloo has a renovated restaurant and 'gaming lounge' however the bar is still old style. They don't have any rooms available until the 17th July (I just checked). Wynnum Anchor Motel 14 Adam Street, Brisbane, Queensland 4178, Australia http://wynnumanchormotel.com.au/ Its a quiet location. You are in walking distance of the lovely Wynnum Esplanade. Its more Wynnum Central / Wynnum North) ie 10 minute drive to Manly West. The Waterloo Bay Hotel (it has serviced apartments) http://www.waterloobayhotel.com.au/ Address: 75 Berrima Street, Wynnum, Queensland 4178 Phone: 07 3893 2344 Fax: 07 3393 4520 Email: info@waterloobayhotel.com.au I just used http://www.realestate.com.au to find a rental. We ended up renting through James Dean Residential http://www.jdre.com.au (their office is in Tinglapa) they seem to look after the rental properties very well. The rental application went through in 24 hours very smoothly following the viewing. They were completely fine with foreigners renting and not having all the necessary paperwork, providing you have demonstrable capital and/or permanent job.
