Staff Speak on What it is Like to Work at Brain Injury SA (BISA)
“Working with wonderful clients who are inspirational, to achieve their goals whatever they may be, is what I like about working at BISA.”
It is great to be working amongst a great team who are all passionate about helping clients with Brain Injury.
Working at BISA has diversified my skills because every person we see is different and has different needs and goals. This has challenged me in new ways and assisted in my professional and personal development/growth.
I would say to others that if you are wanting a role that is rewarding and challenges you to think outside the box, really use your skills/knowledge and your innovation/creativity to help others then this is the role!
“No-one with a brain injury has the same experience or needs as anyone else.”
Working at BISA brings you into contact with a wonderful range of people from many different walks of life.
As staff, we have an inter disciplinary approach here that means you get to work with highly skilled colleagues who have many distinct areas of expertise.
It is a great way to learn more every day.
“There are a variety of reason why I love working at BISA, which are both clinical and non-clinical. I really enjoy working with our participants, getting to know each person and building strong relationships while helping them achieve their therapy and life goals.”
I have met a lot of incredible people with amazing stories and seeing them make progress is an absolute of working for Brain Injury. The Brain Injury SA team members are outstanding, I have been working in my field for nearly two years now and have developed close relationships within that time, all team members and I ensure that we create a welcoming and fun environment for the staff and participants. The positive work life balance that Brain Injury SA offers should be a must in all workplaces, we have flexible working hours that allow us to take time for ourselves when needed.
Working at BISA has given me experience into that role that allied health professional have in assisting people to embrace life after a brain injury and the empathy and kindness that is necessary to work within this specialised field. It has given me a greater understanding of how people overcome a brain injury and I have gained a better perspective on the challenges that people may face and ways in which we can help them overcome the barriers. It has helped me gain confidence and knowledge in this area and this has been supported with ongoing personal/professional development opportunities.
I started working at Brain Injury SA as a New Graduate, fresh out of University, which is a daunting process within itself however my transition from University to full time work was relatively smooth. I had a lot of support and guidance when I first started, and this helped shape the health professional I am today.
“BISA has afforded me the opportunity to start my career as a psychologist, something that gives me a great sense of purpose.”
Here I am surrounded by people who are passionate about their work and authentic in their approach in offering support and facilitating change. My opinion and suggestions have been considered with respect despite being an early career professional. Most importantly, it is immensely gratifying to be able to work with our participants. When something ‘clicks’ and participants are able to gain greater personal insight and to build skills and the confidence to achieve their goals that is the cherry on top!
“Working at Brain Injury SA continues to be a truly unique and rewarding experience.”
Every day, I have the opportunity the improve the lives of people with acquired brain injury and make a meaningful change in their rehabilitation journey. The best part is, I get to do this in a team of like-minded people who share the same passion for helping others as I do.
Brain Injury SA has provided me with countless opportunities to develop and specialise clinically. This is thanks to the abundance of knowledge and experience about neurological rehab I am surrounded with each day. Beyond this, I have experienced immense personal growth here thanks to support and guidance of the team around me.
I honestly could not have wished for a more positive new graduate experience. It really has given me the confidence in my clinical knowledge and myself to progress in neurological rehabilitation.
