Why do you work at Everyday Independence?
  1. Career Progression and Learning:  Our therapists rated our development programmes > 9/10 in our 2019 Team Survey. All therapists at EI have a career pathway and many tell us that “if you have worked at EI, you are so well trained you can work anywhere”.

  5. Support: Everyone has access to support and scheduled professional development across the week.  Therapists access coaching, mentoring, shadowing, learning communities and much more. Therapists tell us that accessing the right support at the right time has the biggest impact on their work with their clients.

  3. Our size: With nearly 250 employees, our team members tell us that they like the opportunities that size brings (eg. career development, scheduling caseloads that are close to each other, specialisation and being part of team that look out for each other).  We have found that becoming bigger has enabled us to become more connected. 
  4. Our geographical reach – we have 14 locations in metropolitan and regional Victoria and NSW.  We have employees move for career opportunities and for life circumstances.  When our clients move we can support them in their new location without a break in service, often supporting them to access their new home and community with confidence for the first time.
