Job Description:


Psychologist – Paediatrics– Level 3 – Fixed term, part time

Tasmanian Health Service – North-West Coast

To be Tasmanian is to pursue quality over quantity. We create, preserve, and protect the unusual. With quiet confidence, with passion and perseverance, we pursue the extraordinary. Could you be Tasmanian?

You could be a Psychologist anywhere. What’s different about Tasmania is our culture and our lifestyle. You will have a powerful connection to your clients and their families, and the community will encourage your success. Our isolation helps drive a culture of invention and human connection, which feels both old fashioned and… like the only future worth pursuing.

Here you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to breath-taking coastlines, National Parks and incredible fresh produce crafted by our locals. After a hard day at work, you don’t have to sit in traffic for an hour. You decompress with a coastal drive through quaint little towns or put on your boots and tell it to the mountain.

We are small enough here for you to shape and influence your work and make a real impact every day. Yet we are big enough for you to feel part of something important, somewhere you can belong and be surrounded by diversity, friendships, professional support, and positive lifestyles. Tasmanians are connected to the land where we live, and to the stories of the people who have cared for this place for tens of thousands of years.

You’ll play a leading role in our inclusive and expert team across the North-West, working alongside our Paediatricians, fellow Allied Health professionals and Nurses to provide comprehensive care that is centred on the unique situation of each individual you meet. This is how you can gain true meaning from your work. The team will rely on you thriving in your role and will be invested in making this a reality. Take a look at the Statement of Duties below for more details.
