Time to Shine Therapy Clinic - Mernda, Victoria

Do you want to work at a private practice that is passionate about working with children, adolescents and families? Are you experienced and enthusiastic about working ONLY with children,adolescents and families? If this sounds like you, then we want you!

Time to Shine Therapy is looking for a Psychologist to join our growing practice. We are a young and dynamic private practice working with children, adolescents and families based in Melbourne's north eastern suburbs. We are a multidisciplined clinic consisting of 7 Psychologists, 6 Speech Pathologists and 10 Occupational Therapists! We are looking for a Psychologist to join our team with an existing caseload that is ready to go. Your case load will be managed by you (contractor role) and with our current expansion to a second location we will over time be able to suit the days you wish to work. Days and hours are flexible and negotiable long term but we are requiring someone who can take over a current caseload from another psychologist whom has gone on maternity leave. 

At Time to Shine Therapy we have a cohesive team of practitioners (psychologists, speech pathologists and occupational therapists) that are passionate about working together to assist children, adolescents and families in our local community. We are interested in building a strong practice culture founded in team-work, collaboration and passion for the work we do. In an industry where our work can be isolating, Time to Shine Therapy is wanting to keep the workplace with a sense of purpose and belonging, where practitioners work independently as well as together on promoting our brand and our services to the local community. You should also enjoy the workplace you work in, and we know you will with our fun and energetic young team.
