Complex Psychology is a boutique allied health consultancy that provides a range of allied health services. We are in high demand as a result of our experience assessing, coordinating and treating clients who have extremely complex needs and for our expertise in negotiating complex service system challenges. Due to high demand for our services, we are seeking a part-time speech pathologist to undertake a variety of different assessment, coordination and treatment roles. We are flexible regarding hours and happy to negotiate with the right individual.
At the heart of what Complex Psychology does is our dedication to working with clients who have multiple and complex needs.
Due to the expansion of our practice, we are seeking a speech pathologist who is keen for a challenge, but looking for a flexible, interesting and supportive workplace. Prior to COVID-19, Complex Psychology had a flexible approach to work, including work from home arrangements. Our offices are located in Port Melbourne, but we can implement partial 'work from home' arrangements for the right person. Ultimately, we are looking for a speech pathologist who can complement the services we offer to older adolescents and adults with complex needs. The role would suit a person who is keen for a challenge, wants to work with clients who have extremely complex issues (often a combination of serious mental illness, intellectual disability, brain injury, severe substance misuse, neurodevelopmental disorders, etc.) and who are frequently a risk to themselves, others and the community. Despite the challenges our clients face, we are committed to working with them in an ethical and strength based framework.
Whilst there would be a focus on speech pathology assessment and treatment, part of the role would potentially also include behaviour support interventions, specialist support coordination and also coordination under the Multiple & Complex Needs initiative (MACNI). Depending on the individual, it may also involve the provision of behaviour support services to NDIS participants.
Applicants with a range of backgrounds are encouraged to apply, including those with experience in forensic services/corrections/prisons, rehabilitation services, disability services, AOD programs, clinical/forensic mental health services and program management.
We encourage applicants to make contact to discuss the role with either Lucy O’Hanlon, Senior Occupational Therapist/Team Leader, on 0427 867 763 or firstname.lastname@example.org (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday), Jacqui Brown, Clinical Psychologist/Director, on 0427 721 076 or email@example.com (Monday and Thursday) or Michelle James, Senior Psychologist/Team Leader on 0488 071 424 or firstname.lastname@example.org (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday), using the subject line: Speech Pathologist - Complex Needs enquiry via EthicalJobs.
Internal and external supervision is provided, as is regular CPD. Travel within Victoria, including some limited travel to rural and regional areas may be a part of the role and it is essential that applicants have access to their own vehicle.
