About Monash Health

Monash Health is Victoria’s largest public health service.  We are proud to provide healthcare to one quarter of Melbourne’s population, across the entire life span from newborn and children, to adults, the elderly, their families and carers

About the role:

Monash Mental Health Program is strengthening its front end services. This increased capacity means shorter wait times to access treatment for people seeking help, continuity of care and improved therapeutic effectiveness.

At Agile Psychological Medicine (aPM), we believe our community should be able to access therapeutic care at their first interaction with our mental health services.

By partnering with our emergency points of contact, aPM offers people personalised therapeutic interventions at the time they are help seeking.

To deliver this we need smart and experienced psychologists to join our dynamic teams located in Berwick, Dandenong and Clayton. Grade 3 psychologists will need to have clinical or forensic endorsement, and Grade 2 psychologists would ideally have relevant clinical experience post-graduation.

Our clients have a range of backgrounds, therapy goals and needs, so you will need to employ a flexible therapeutic approach to obtain maximum benefit for each client. Client- and therapist-rated outcome measures are routinely used and consistently demonstrate improvement, even after just a few appointments with aPM.

Psychology and Specialist Services at Monash offers regular professional supervision, peer support and opportunity for career development to all of our 180 psychologists. We have Australia’s first Psychology Registrar and Graduate Education Program to support our early career psychologists, and support senior psychologists to maintain PsyBA supervisor status. Additional benefits include salary packaging, five weeks annual leave (pro rata), and paid professional development leave.

Please indicate in your cover letter if you are applying for a full time and/or part time role (note: 3 days per week minimum for part-time roles).

Monash Health employee benefits:

  • Salary packaging
  • Onsite staff parking
  • Discounted banking (BankVic)
  • Onsite Gym
  • Access to professional development courses and seminars

Monash Health will offer:

  • salary packaging
  • friendly and supportive culture
  • opportunity to experience various teams
  • on-going supervision and professional development

What’s in it for you?

You will be part of a dynamic changing environment that will have future growth. You will also have access to a range of corporate benefits, including salary packaging options that can significantly increase your take home pay and access to staff car parking.

Monash Health recognises the value of equal employment opportunity and is committed to patient safety and promoting fairness, equity and diversity in the workplace. At Monash Health we are relentless in our pursuit of excellence and work to our six guiding principles.

Preferred candidates will require a clear Police Check and a current Employee Working with Children’s Check prior to any offers of employment being made.

As part of our selection process, you may be invited by email to participate in an on-camera video interview. 

Please note, applications will be accepted via the Monash Health online Mercury System only. Email applications will not be considered.
