Independence Coach (Occupational Therapist)

Posted: August 7, 2018


Langley – Part-time (minimum 15 hours/week) Occupational Therapist by profession and Independence Coach by nature!

You have a passion for people; a curious, open mind and a desire to make a difference in the lives of others. You are a relationship-builder and thrive on the learning and development of others. You find opportunity or create it and are prepared to dive into an evolving role for a company on the path of growth — whether you’re a recent graduate wanting to make a difference, or an experienced professional looking for a fresh challenge.

We’re looking for just the right person to join our team as Independence Coach for CONNECT Langley. As Independence Coach you will be responsible for delivering occupational therapy services as you live the CONNECT promise every day — Making Lives Better. You will be part of a team of dedicated individuals that supports our transitional and residential residents to find A Better Way After Brain Injury.

You will report directly to our Site Leader in Langley and will have an opportunity to play a key role in mirroring CONNECT’s services by working with your Independence Coach counter-part at CONNECT Lake Country.

The check list:

  • An Occupational Therapist registered (or eligible for registration) with COTBC;
  • self-starter and relationship builder;
  • Comfy working in the ‘grey’. Able to imagine a world without boxes and seek out or create opportunities for A Better Way;
  • Open, honest and authentic communicator;
  • Can dance in the moment;
  • Flexible;
  • People and community focused; and
  • Contribute to the development of services at CONNECT Langley based on your own unique strengths and interests

What the role looks like: As a member of an integrated, multi-professional Coaching Resource Team you will partner with our residents helping them as they redesign their lives after brain injury. You will shape the development and delivery of occupational therapy services in keeping with the culture of CONNECT, building capacity amongst our team to work together to meet the goals of the individual, the shared goals of the team, and support CONNECT’s vision to transform the way in which people living with brain injury are served in our communities.
