Are you a Registered Occupational Therapist, Social Worker, or Nurse interested in making a difference in mental health and addictions?

If you are experienced in mental health and addictions, or pondering a shift into the mental health and addictions sector, then we would love to hear from you.

Working in Mental Health isn’t what you might think, the last year has seen some big challenges and there are more coming. However we are doing some great work and we are having a real impact on the lives of some of our most vulnerable people. It’s an exciting time to get involved with the government recently releasing its report from the enquiry into Mental Health and Addiction.

We have opportunities both in our community teams and inpatient services team, and are keen to work with interested applicants to see what roles could be the right fit for them. We have a flexible work force and therefore we can look at part-time, full-time or casual.

If you feel like a change, and you’re up for a challenge, then let us know and we look forward to discussing the options available with you.
