Are you a mental health clinician looking for a change but maybe not ready to leave your role for good? This 6 month position with headspace in Launceston is the perfect opportunity for a career break (with a generous salary) and to apply your skills making a difference in the lives of 12-25 year old's.

The Position

headspace is seeking a suitably qualified mental health clinician (psychologist, social worker, OT or registered nurse) to join their experienced Launceston team in a full time capacity for a fixed term of 6 months.

This is an ideal opening for a clinician to provide therapeutic counselling and support to young people aged between 12-25. This may include working with their families, school and linking with other community agencies.

If you aren’t already living here in Launnie then you may even be looking to try living and working here in Tasmania. Either way this might be a great way to test the waters and join this organisation for a fixed period!

As we mentioned you must hold a degree in psychology, social work, occupational therapy or other similar allied health discipline with relevant professional membership or eligibility for membership. Applicants will have knowledge and experience in the delivery of evidence-based counselling frameworks.

The Organisation

headspace centres act as a one-stop-shop for young people who need help with mental health, physical health, alcohol and other drugs or work and study support. No two headspace centres are the same, with each offering unique services that reflect the needs of its local community.

headspace is delivered in the north and north west of Tasmanian by Cornerstone Youth Services.

headspace Launceston is located in the CBD, with easy access to transport, car parks and endless food options. It is also just a stone’s throw away from the iconic Cataract Gorge.

What's on offer?

The successful applicant will be joining an energetic and dedicated team and will have access to considerable clinical support from Cornerstone Youth Services and headspace National.

In addition to all of the above you will be offered an above award salary which will be negotiated between $85,000 - $110,000 depending on skills and experience.
