Why Work at Back In Motion

Hear from our staff

Our staff share why they love being part of the Back In Motion family.

What are the three best things about being part of the Back In Motion Health Group?
  1. The model. It works.
  2. Having the specialised staff at the National Support Office assist in the areas of marketing, website and social media, and business development help grow our businesses. They have a bird’s eye view of multiple businesses and can provide guidance that you just can’t get on your own.
  3. The support of other directors – both from a clinical resources perspective, but also a business and social. It leads to camaraderie and constructive competition that’s both enjoyable and builds accountability.
How has Back In Motion assisted your personal and professional development?

I have learnt a great deal from being in the franchise not just through the formal programs, but informally through knowing so many intelligent and helpful people. This includes the National Support Office staff as well as other directors nationally.

What does Back In Motion offer that other employers don’t?

All of the above!

Plus, SOS Health Foundation which was founded by Back In Motion founder, Jason Smith, has given me a platform to give back to the community by providing voluntary physiotherapy services to those in need. I’ve grown to see that being significant is more rewarding than being successful. This has lead me to see my work and career in a different light.

What are the most rewarding aspects of your job?

Helping clients strive for optimal physical health. Not just from the point of view of aiding them with pain relief but also helping them improve their lives and relationships by being healthier and fitter. We help people enjoy life, and that is a very rewarding thing for me too.

What are the three best things about being part of the Back In Motion Health Group?
  1. The on-going support.
  2. GREAT team culture and environment.
  3. Seeing our clients leave and knowing they are completely satisfied.
How has Back In Motion assisted your personal and professional development?

Personally, I work in an environment which is fun, friendly and completely supportive.  Environment and culture are a big part of why I came to work at Back In Motion – I have not been disappointed!! Professionally, I am growing and learning every day and I can see the opportunities that lay before me and that makes me really excited.

What does Back In Motion offer that other employers don’t?

In the past I have found that other employers look towards ‘what you can do for them’ then incorporating that into you career plan.  Back In Motion looks towards ‘what can we do for you’ then you set a plan for what is important for you.

What are the most rewarding aspects of your job?

The relationship building, not only with the clients, but also my team members.  Also, it is extremely rewarding to see the clients leaving happy, and it’s even better when they return.

How has Back In Motion assisted your personal and professional development?

Back In Motion provides additional services over and above physiotherapy, such as clinical Pilates, running analysis and real time ultrasound. Specialist training in these areas has helped me to further expand on the knowledge I gained at university.

What does Back In Motion offer that other employers don’t?

Ongoing support, opportunity for growth and a friendly environment.

What are the most rewarding aspects of your job?

Having patients tell you that they’ve “never felt better!”
