Purpose of the Position

We are looking to expand our Wellbeing team and welcome a new Wellbeing Support Practitioner.

Being Found is contracted to provide an in-house wellbeing service for our client who is a tertiary education provider. Based at our client’s Sydney campus in Surry Hills, the Wellbeing Program aims to offer support for students as they undertake their studies.
