Location: North West Tasmania       Occupation: Occupational Therapy, Psychology       Position Type: Full Time, Permanent, Part Time      

Psychology CAFFE is seeking a psychologist or mental health occupational therapist with experience working with complex presentations, who enjoys making a long term difference to clients.

The Position

Psychology CAFFE has a very cohesive team of 15 clinicians, many work closely together with families, and other services, including CAMHS and ACMHS.

Whilst Psychology CAFFE can offer employment full time or flexibility for the right candidate, they do have a mixed model, and will consider contracting for this position. It is all about the right fit for you and for them. We expect you will be based in Ulverstone, and will travel to Burnie, living between these locations will place you on the most beautiful coastline of Australia.

To apply for the role you will need full registration with AHPRA as either a psychologist or a mental health occupational therapist, and eligibility for a provider number.

  • Knowledge and experience with complex mental health presentations across the lifespan
  • PBA approved supervisor status will be highly regarded
  • Family Therapy Training or PBS proficient status an advantage

To make sure their team are valued as highly as their clients, you will be handsomely paid, and will be passionate about what you do. You will excel in an extraordinary way if you are invited to be a part of their team, as they are quite fussy, and for a good reason, their clients and their community deserve the best.
