Knowing how to write an osteopathy job post can change everything

How to write an osteopathy job post that stands out from the crowd

Osteopathic clinic owners are desperate to find the right or even any associate for their osteopathy job advert. Unfortunately, job posts are either getting lost in the mix of dozens posted every month, or the associate isn’t a good match.

Getting the right associate osteopath for your business can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to knowing how to write an osteopathy job post. On top of all that, it can also be tempting to hire for speed instead of quality. After all, you just got a lot of work on your own, and now you need the hiring process to happen fast.

Is hiring fast ever worth the trade-off?

Put simply, no.

It may take longer than you hoped, but a bad hire can be devastating to any osteopathic clinic. If this is your first associate osteopath hire, you’re entrusting a new face to sustain everything you’ve worked hard to build so far. Whereas, if you’re adding another associate to your team, maintaining your clinic culture and upholding team dynamics are critical.

The right advert can change everything.

Writing a strong job post is the best first step you can take to attract the strongest associates and decrease the pressure of hiring fast.

Knowing how to write an osteopathy job post, much like osteopathy itself, is an art and a science. It will take time to get right. So, follow our guidance, and you’ll find similar results to our business coaching clients who not only get more replies to their osteopathy job advert but osteopaths who match perfectly with the job role, responsibilities and clinic culture.

How to write an osteopathy job post

Advert breakdown and explaination

Financial security & fast career progression opportunity in Redwood. Full-time Salaried Associate Position – $75,000

This title highlights the key benefits of the job and speaks to someone who values financial security in favour of a percentage split despite a higher earning potential. 

Think about what benefits you can offer and feature the best two in the title.

Here, we’re speaking to someone who values mentorship as well as an opportunity to work their way up the ladder – someone with ambition who wants to take on more responsibility.

We’ve created a friendly and supportive environment at our clinic, so you have everything you need to build a busy working week without burning out.

The key here is to create a sentence that says “no, you won’t be walking into a full list, but we’re here to give you the tools to help.” 

Are you enthusiastic about learning how to become a better osteopath? We have a 1:1 mentoring program focused on building your confidence, communication skills and technique tool kit so you can feel like you’re a part of something more than just a job. We welcome new graduates too.

This paragraph speaks to osteopaths who may not have a lot of clinical experience but are willing to learn the ropes with a team who care. 

Want to run a clinic of your own one day? We’re looking for an associate with the ambition and drive to become a clinic partner. So, if you want to skip the hard graft of building a clinic from scratch, keep reading.

‘Yes questions’, or questions that make the person answer either yes or no are useful in helping the reader decide if they’d like to apply or not. Think about the type of person you want to interview and write down questions that allow you to filter out those who wouldn’t be a good fit. 

Redwood is a fantastic place to live. If you enjoy the great outdoors, vibrant nightlife, beautiful walking trails, rich culture and an excellent shopping centre, you’ll love Redwood.

Talking about the location is a great way to show that you’re thinking about more than just the job. Some people may not have considered moving or commuting to where you are, so put your town’s best side in a positive light.

If you want to work for a clinic that cares about your career while offering financial security of a $75,000 annual salary and career development, then becoming an associate at the Redwood Osteopathy Clinic is for you.

Like any good job ad, wrap all the best bits into one sentence. This is especially important for those who skip to the end to read the best parts.

There is one clear theme thread throughout this advert: the associate. Take the values and benefits of working at your clinic and make the advert about them.   

The importance of clinic culture

Although tempting to be perfect, be real

A significant part of learning how to write an osteopathy job post is understanding your clinic culture.

The ideal associate will suit your clinic culture. In-fact, 73% of professionals leave jobs due to a mismatch of company culture. This means they share the same values and align with your vision, so it’s essential to interlace this throughout your advert and reiterated during the interview process.

So, start thinking about what you want your clinic culture to feel like so you can get off on the right foot to avoid disappointing interviews.
