About You

You are an experienced leader and manager who is passionate about supporting your clinical team and driving their professional growth. You are passionate and dedicated to your clients, the quality of services you provide, and the outcomes your clients receive. You thrive on this and find it extremely rewarding. You are a reflective leader and practitioner, a lifelong learner, and deeply value clinical supervision and continuing professional development.

You relish the idea of sticking to time, giving appropriate attention to detail and prioritising tasks, so you can get out the door and focus on your life: the things you cherish, that lift you up, keep you grounded and balanced and revitalise you. You are committed to genuine self-care and are able to balance this with ongoing consistent, reliable and dedicated client care.

You are a warm, diplomatic, assertive, supportive and approachable leader and feel at home in a team environment. You are contained, calm, grounded, independent and have good boundaries. You really get the importance of maintaining a cohesive and supportive team. You believe that working together lifts us all up.

You are a confident practitioner who appreciates full admin support and established systems, policies and procedures to free up your time, so that you can do your best work.

You align with our values of Commitment, Abundance, Integrity and Connection.

About our Rooms

Based in the Belconnen and Gungahlin town centres in Canberra, we are close to major arterial roads with loads of natural light and lifts for accessibility. We are close to public transport, shops, good schools, good coffee, food, gyms and shops. Our Belconnen rooms boast stunning views, easy access to walk around the lake at lunchtime, plus end of journey facilities including showers, lockers and a bicycle tyre repair station. We have a dedicated Groups Room and an Assessment Room for psychometric testing.

About the Role

This role involves managing some of our Clinical Team and providing therapy and/or assessments to clients. There is capacity to provide Clinical Supervision to Psychologists who you do not directly manage. Whilst most of our team are in Canberra, we have five Psychologists and three support staff across Victoria, NSW and South Australia. You could work in our rooms in Canberra or lead from interstate. We are scheduled to open an Adelaide clinic in early 2024, so there is an opportunity to join the Adelaide team.

Key responsibilities include:
  • Clinical Team Support
  • Direct Line Management
  • Clinical Governance
  • Clinical Supervision (of non-direct reports)
  • Quality Improvement Processes
  • Clinician Professional Development
  • Direct Clinical Services

The role would suit an experienced Manager and Registered Psychologist, with or without an endorsement in Clinical, Clinical Neuro, Counselling or Educational and Developmental Psychology.

Unlike many other private practices, we offer a career pathway to ensure your continued growth. We want our team, and Psychologists around the country to achieve their highest potential and get the best outcomes for clients. With this in mind, we are developing an Academy for Provisional and Early Career Psychologists. We have the capacity to nurture, grow and develop team members with all levels of experience, and actively draw on our in-house expertise to do so. We are seeking a leader who is passionate to join us in this vision.
