This role may suit an experienced clinician or a newer graduate with personal experience of recovery and passion to make a difference. A combination of training and supervision will be negotiated and tailored to support your growth and efficacy as a professional.
Depending on client load, other non-client-facing operations management may be also be available.
This opportunity would suit professionals currently in their own private practice, or emerging therapy professionals wanting to work on a casual/contract basis.
