This is a rare opportunity to learn, grow and build a solid base of clinical experience …
For 60+ years, this non-profit has provided disability support to Brisbane children and families. Multi-disciplinary services are purpose-designed to help children and young people, with high needs, to live the best lives possible with their families.
Based in a comfortable and contemporary suburban clinic, set in leafy surrounds, convenient to Brisbane, you’ll be working to the Manager Allied Health as part of a lean, hard-working, multi-disciplined team. Collectively, all of these committed professionals provide the evidence-based services that enable clients and their families to promote their independence and inclusion in their communities.
To be considered for this busy role within a fast-moving and continually changing clinical environment, you will need to bring qualifications that include a recognised tertiary qualification in Speech Pathology, certified membership of Speech Pathology Australia, experience in paediatric care – ideally with children living with disability – and a working knowledge of AAC.
While you don’t need to be a senior practitioner, you do need several years’ experience where you’ve worked both autonomously and as a contributing member of a healthcare team.
Emotionally mature and passionate about providing support to children with special needs, you’ll be excited to learn that your boss here is an expert Speech Therapist who is extremely well equipped to mentor you and guide your professional development.
What could be better? A great place to work with a supportive team, guidance from an expert and a wonderfully wide range of cases where each day you really can help to bring added richness into the lives of disabled children.
The only minor drawback is that by keeping costs to a minimum, clinical personnel – of which you will be one – must be prepared to do their own admin without the support of costly clerical backup.
If you have been waiting for a career-changing opportunity like this one – and can meet all (or most) of the criteria above – don’t delay in getting your application to us. Openings for jobs with such excellent prospects rarely last very long. Oh and don’t forget your detailed cover letter and to advise on the days/hours you prefer to work. Good luck.
In addition to your Driver’s Licence, you will need experience with AAC, a recognised tertiary qualification in Speech Pathology and certified membership of Speech Pathology Australia along with a Medicare provider number (or willingness to obtain) and all current suitability cards.
