Are you passionate about working with young people?
If so, you should consider applying for this position with headspace as a contracted practitioner! Several vacancy have been created due to growth of our headspace services in Southwest Sydney, Western Sydney, as well as Far Western NSW (telehealth initiative).
Specifically, we have vacancies in the following headspace services:
- headspace Bankstown
- headspace Castle Hill
- headspace Parramatta
- headspace Broken Hill (telehealth contract - position can be based from any of our headspace services)
We are looking for practitioners who are ideally available 2 - 3 days per week.
headspace works from an early intervention framework with young people who have mental health issues or emerging issues. We deliver four core services which includes general health, mental health support, vocational services, and alcohol and other drug services.
headspace offers a busy and supportive team environment. As a contracted practitioner, you will receive referrals from the headspace team and we will do all Medicare claiming and almost all the admin work for you! As a contracted practitioner you will be part of our very supportive team of clinicians and professionals.
We offer a highly competitive hourly rate despite being a bulk billing service which we achieve by only charging you a small percentage of your earnings for room hire and admin support. You will need to have (or be eligible to obtain) a Medicare provider number, professional indemnity insurance, and an ABN number.
You must have some experience working with young people with mental health issues, but not necessarily from private practice settings. We welcome applications from Psychologists and Clinical Psychologists, as well as Occupational Therapists, Accredited Social Workers, and Mental Health Nurses.
