Vacant Positions

The COVID-19 pandemic has consumed our minds, socially distanced our hearts and challenged our expectations for 2020. For many Melbourne children, this has meant rapidly adapting to remote learning and socialisation and coping with ongoing uncertainty and change. These immediate stressors are in addition to the mental health, developmental and learning challenges that many children face outside of the pandemic. At Mind & Seek, we have a rapidly growing waitlist for children, adolescents and parents seeking help during these difficult times. We are seeking a highly motivated and passionate child and adolescent psychologist to join our service as a part-time contractor. 

Mind & Seek is a child and adolescent private psychology practice in Melbourne’s inner north west of Melbourne. Mind & Seek is part of the Western Psychological Services network, which has been helping families in the North-Western parts of Melbourne for over 25 years.

As a sub-contractor, you will provide counselling, intervention and assessment services for children and adolescents who present with learning, developmental, emotional and behavioural difficulties. During Stage 4 restrictions, we are primarily offering telehealth consultations (working from home) and will resume face-to-face services as guided by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and Australian Psychological Society (APS).

The contractor role offers:

  • A professional, friendly and flexible working environment.

  • Regular and ongoing individual and peer supervision (including opportunities for clinical endorsement).

  • Administrative support and access to clinical resources.

  • A diverse range of client presentations to deliver evidence-based therapeutic interventions to young people aged 3 to 16 years and their families.

  • Telehealth and face-to-face consultations available (some opportunities to work from home).

  • The opportunity to complete a range of psychological assessments and reports for the purpose of diagnosing developmental or learning presentations.

  • EXCELLENT remuneration and flexible working hours.

  • Two locations available - 2+ days currently available at Mind & Seek Essendon and / or 1+ days available at WPS Melton (see www.wpsychology.com for more information about our Melton location).

  • Support and opportunity to develop own areas of interest and expertise.

  • An established network of connections with local GPs, paediatricians and schools.

Essential Criteria

  • Full registration as a psychologist with AHPRA.

  • Capability to work independently in conducting assessments and counselling for children, adolescents and families.

  • Skill and expertise in providing psychological interventions and therapy to children, adolescents and families.

  • Strong commitment to ongoing professional development and ethical practice.
