We are delighted to announce that Konekt Workcare has joined our Defence Partner Friendly Employer initiative.
Konekt have written this week’s guest blog post to introduce themselves.
Konekt WorkCare is an organisation who pride ourselves in being an employer of choice. We have a national, geographical footprint that matches the ADF geographical footprint perfectly, allowing for office transfers when your partner is posted to another location around the country.
If you are an allied health professional (OT, EP, Physio, Psychologist, Rehab Counsellor, Registered Nurse or Social Worker) and enjoy creating and keeping Australian workplaces safe and returning injured or ill employees to work, then Konekt can support you in a rewarding role with the flexibility to move around the country as the need and opportunity arises.
We have worked closely with the ADF and DVA for the last 13 years and have a comprehensive understanding of the challenges faced by Members and their families.
Coming to Sydney, I found it difficult to find a workplace that would be able to provide a job nationally and would be understanding of my situation as an Army Spouse.
I found that most workplaces were looking at the five-year term more favourably than 2 years which is all I could commit to. I started with Konekt with only one year to go at my posting in Sydney and they embraced me with open arms.
They have provided me with plenty of options should I have to move again for the next posting. I am currently in the process of relocating one year on and Konekt have ensured that I have a position to transfer to without a hassle.
I would definitely recommend Konekt to other ADF spouses in Allied Health should they need that reassurance of a job at the next posting.

I joined Konekt due to being a national provider of Occupational Rehabilitation services and this provided me with the flexibility to remain employed upon posting and knowing I had a job at our new location.
Konekt has welcomed me with open arms at all three branches over two states and understand the uniqueness of being an ADF spouse and the knowledge and life skills this brings.
Career development continues with Konekt and a posting to a new location does not mean your career is on pause, actually the opposite, because of previous experiences with different customers, this will enhance your career development plan.
I am proud to be working for Konekt and assisting with providing high quality outcomes to our customers and working with a great team around Australia supporting each other.
If you are a ADF spouse with appropriate health qualifications and looking for a job that can provide flexibility, career progression and working with a fabulous team, join Konekt today!’
