Are you a mental health clinician looking for a change? This full time position with headspace in Burnie may be your chance for a tree change. As an added bonus you will have the opportunity to apply your skills making a difference in the lives of 12-25 year olds.

The Position

headspace is seeking a suitably qualified mental health clinician (psychologist, social worker, OT or registered nurse) to join their new team in a full time capacity for a fixed term of 12 months, with a possible extension.

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 are already living here in Tassie then you know how great it is otherwise you may be looking to try it out. 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-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.

Burnie is a vibrant and creative beachside city located on a scenic stretch of Tasmania’s coast, with loads of shopping and foodie options and a Makers Workshop where you can view local craft and artisans. If nature is more your calling then you have access to nearby waterfalls, bushwalks and can spend your weekends visiting iconic tourist destinations like Cradle Mountain.

What's on offer?

The successful applicant will be joining an energetic and dedicated team and will have access to considerable clinical support.

You will be offered an above award salary which will be negotiated depending on skills and experience. This also includes salary packaging options and the prestige of having worked with a nationally renowned organisation and having a positive impact in the lives of some of Tasmania’s youth.

In addition to all of the above HR+ can help you make the move with a $5000 relocation grant and the option of taking up a Health Workforce Scholarship (up to $10,000 per year over a 2 year period).
