New Jobs4physios website to connect allied health professionals with potential employers
30 July 2015
The Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) today launched Jobs4physios, an online employment portal designed to connect physiotherapists and related allied health professionals with healthcare employers.
The website www.jobs4physios.com.au will replace the APA’s Classifieds Board, and will provide separate sections for employers to post vacancies and for job seekers to search for roles. Jobs4physios is expected to provide a strong alternative to employment websites Seek, MyCareer, Indeed and Melbourne Health.
“We recognise the diverse and unique skill sets possessed by staff in physiotherapy and the difficulty some organisations face finding qualified people. Jobs4physios will make a difference for APA members as they look to employ experienced candidates, and will assist individual members as they navigate their career paths within the profession,” APA CEO, Cris Massis, said.
Jobs4physios will attract physiotherapists, students, and allied health professionals who are actively looking for employment, as well as those who are already employed and not necessarily seeking a new position. Hospitals, private practices, multi-discipline practices, allied health providers and recruitment agencies will benefit from the increased talent pool Jobs4physios is expected to aggregate.
Employers who advertise on Jobs4physios will be included in the APA’s monthly members’ careers email, and will also have the opportunity to purchase banner space in prime locations across jobs4physios.com.au.
“Banner advertising will be particularly important for employers seeking professionals for difficult-to-fill or high-level appointments, as it will influence passive job seekers who may be highly qualified and happily employed to consider a new, advertised position,” Mr Massis continued.
Employers will also be able to search the Jobs4physios resume database of qualified candidates; manage jobs and applicant activity directly from the site; and limit applicants to those who are qualified – ultimately filling jobs more quickly with great talent.
Candidates will be able to quickly search and apply for relevant jobs; set up job alerts so they are the first to know when a job is posted that matches their skills or interests; create an anonymous job-seeker profile; upload their resume for employers to search – even if they don’t plan to actively apply for positions; as well as access job searching tools and tips.
“With Jobs4physios, APA members can look forward to a functional, user-friendly location that matches a broad list of jobs with the industry’s best talent – physiotherapy has been waiting for a site like this,” Mr Massis said.
