Clinical Psychologist - Full Time

Headstart is a vibrant and energetic practice specialising in psychological, speech pathology and occupational therapy services for children, adolescents and adults. Our primary areas of expertise lie in the area of autism and related disorders; both detection and intervention. We do however, attract clients with diverse presentations and we would encourage the successful applicant to pursue their area of interest or expertise.  We currently have 13 psychologists, eight speech pathologists and three occupational therapists working in the practice, all of whom bring their own areas of expertise. Clinicians consult from any or all of the following locations: Wayville, Gawler and Black Forest.

The successful Clinical Psychologist will have at a minimum completed a Masters of Clinical Psychology or equivalent and will provide clinical services on a full-time employment basis. Supervision and professional development opportunities will be provided.

All Psychologists are supported by reliable and efficient administration staff who take care of all bookings and payments. While there is an existing referral process, you will need to be energetic in securing a strong client base. We welcome an experienced Clinical Psychologist with sound communication skills who can commit to full-time employment. We offer an attractive salary which we will negotiate depending on level of expertise and experience.
