Q&A with AEP, Justin McMenamin

People Stories 16 Aug 2021

We sit down with Justin McMenamin, an Accredited Exercise Physiologist based in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast to find out more about his role, and how he got started in the industry.

Justin McMenamin is an Accredited Exercise Physiologist.

How did you get started at KINNECT?

I was recruited by a university friend and joined after a stint in private practice for a role in Gladstone. At the time, my partner had just got a job on the Sunshine Coast so moving to QLD from Victoria was a great opportunity.

Having spent nearly a year in Gladstone and travelling every weekend to visit my partner on the coast or family in Victoria, I asked for a transfer to the Sunshine Coast and was great timing that the business was growing and a role was available.

Tell us one of your Career Highlights?

While in Gladstone, I supported a lady who had been locked up at home for 3 years with mental health problems as a result of bullying. Within 6 months, I helped her into a new job with a new employer. It was pretty amazing and a powerful insight to the change we can help make at KINNECT.

What does a typical day look like for you?

I’m usually up at 5 and start the day with coffee and making lunches for myself and my partner. I’m at work by 7:30 to get cracking on emails. If I’m meeting clients, I like to get this done in the morning and then return to the clinic in the afternoon to complete Return to Work plans and the necessary admin and desk-based work. On-site work mixes things up though so it’s a good variation.

What do you like most about working at KINNECT?

“Definitely the people and the culture. It’s a great work environment with great people. We take our work seriously but we also really know how to have fun. People say all the time that it’s like a family, and it really is.”

What would you tell others looking for a career in Workplace Rehabilitation?

It’s a really rewarding career and it wasn’t something I was fully aware about while at University. You really get to help people holistically and improve their whole life. As a career, it suits people who are great with people, but also equally good at admin and keeping organised.
