Graduate Positions

Exciting opportunities for new Allied Health Graduates

Are you a final year student or new graduate in the fields of Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy or Speech Pathology?

Xavier provides employment opportunities each year for you to join our team.

At Xavier, your caseload will provide you with a broad range of experience to develop your clinical knowledge and skills. We will develop your learning and mentoring program around your individual needs and not a one size fits all approach. Each day is different and full of variety.

At Xavier, we recognise that interventions provided in the person’s everyday environment are best practice and the preference of most of our clients and families. As such, Xavier remains a community service with the majority of appointments taking place in homes. Xavier also provides a clinic option for families who prefer to come to us. The work we do is suited to professionals who enjoy working independently as well as being part of a multidisciplinary team.
