WE REWARD OUR TEAM!
At DST, we recognise and reward the hard work our team put in. Every year, our team members are nominated to win the prestigious title of SPIRITED person of the year. In 2021, three members of our team won an all-expenses-paid trip to the Northern Territory.
The SPIRITED award winner and two others recognised in our team enjoyed a seven-day tour around the Northern Territory. They gained valuable knowledge about regional services and the community. They created some beautiful memories along the way, taking in the stunning sites the NT has to offer!
MAKE FIRM FRIENDSHIPS
At Down South Therapy, we are a bubbly and friendly bunch. We have a dedicated Social Committee that organises activities and excursions to ensure the whole team are included, and great relationships are formed.
Our next big event is our ten-year anniversary Ball!
GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
We believe it is very rewarding to support our local community. Join our team and gain the opportunities to give back to our local community with therapy groups, charity fundraisers, and community events.
We are currently planning our next Community Christmas Party, our last event received over 400 attendees from our community, all who enjoyed a day of inclusive activities and entertainment.
DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT...
OT Team Leader Adam - Over seven years with Down South Therapy
"Since I started with Down South Therapy in 2014, I have seen it evolve and grow into a vibrant workplace with a strong culture. The level of support that our therapists receive is second-to-none, and although we are mobile, it is hard not to feel connected. I would not have become the therapist I am today without the support that I have received throughout my journey. It was amazing to have the opportunity for learning and professional growth that has seen me progress in my career. I cannot speak highly enough about my experience at Down South Therapy."
If you think you would be an excellent fit for Down South Therapy, we would love to hear from you!
