Why Choose a Career in Allied Health?
There are many reasons why people decide a career in allied health is for them. Here are just a few - and perhaps exactly what you’re looking for:
Most people working in the allied health sector will say their job is rewarding, just like Amanda, who’s a Regional Manager and Registered Psychology at Altius Group.
Reflecting on her job, she mentions “...I reflect on the amount of people that we’ve been able to help, it’s really heartwarming and it’s something that really inspires me and gets me here every day”.
Going to work every day means there is a chance to make a difference in the lives of many, and the work is appreciated not only by the patients but also by the patients' family and friends who may be caring for them. Allied health jobs make life-changing differences every day.
Just as no two patients are the same, no two days are exactly the same in the allied health world. There is always something new to experience and learn. Advances in technology, for example, mean the industry is always evolving and improving. Every year, new medical technology helps save lives and improve the quality of life, and working with new technology keeps the job interesting.
Physically Active Role
Few allied health jobs make staff feel tied to a desk, and instead, most require greeting patients, demonstrating, manipulating, stretching, and bending. Working in non-sedentary jobs means staff members are looking after their health as well as their patients.
Allied health is a perfect career choice for someone who wants to work part-time, full-time, or as a casual. Many of our staff members work part-time to fit in work around study, caring for their children or elderly parents, or pursuing other interests. Offering flexibility ensures happy employees and low turnover rates.
Allied health staff are in demand. Our ageing population and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia mean there are more job vacancies than qualified staff to fill them. Allied health workers can travel around the country (and often overseas) knowing their qualifications will be recognised - so you won't need to worry if you want to pursue a new job somewhere else!
