Work Life Integration

Work Life Integration is a self-management style where instead of being directed that things must be completed with specific hours - you are trusted to balance your needs and the needs of the position.  


You might be someone that enjoys teaching a Yoga class in the morning - at 9 am and why shouldnt you?  Instead of missing that aspect of your life to meet an arbitrary 'working day' develop a plan that allows you to work at the best time for you.


With all the opportunities that the Central West of New South Wales offers being able to be flexible allows you to enjoy the most of what the region has to offer to create a lifestyle that is driven by your choices.

Working full time is only supposed to occupy 42% of your waking hours but when you love your work and you get to choose how to do it - it means that instead of a daily grind you actually have a life.

​About the role

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a Registered Psychologist or Endorsed Psychologist who has the drive to work with complex clients and develop genuine rapport to help change lives.


This person is able to be autonomous in their work but engage with a team in order to meet their own needs as well as clients.  This can mean providing and receiving peer supervision or just working well alongside a professional admin team.


Ultimately - we are looking for someone who wants to develop into an expert in their field and develop mastery of their craft - as well as have a stimulating and engaging relationship with colleagues.

Locations

We currently have opportunities in our Bathurst and Orange offices for this position.

What do we offer?

We offer a salary and conditions that suit both your needs and the companies needs.  Whilst we use the Health Professionals and Support Services Award as a base we understand that in the Allied Health industry particularly - no two peoples needs are going to be the same.  To support that we work with you to develop a package to meet your needs.  For some people Parental Leave is essential whilst for others Supported Study Leave is the key to achieving a work life integration - others want the company to provide their accommodation.  Rather than offer a predetermined set of conditions we will meet with you and work out the best option for every one within the scope of a 'package'.


Anticipated Package Range: $70,000 to $115,000 (ex. Superannuation and leave loading) variable dependent on expertise and experience


What sort of things should you consider?

Without trying to preempt your lifestyle in the past people have asked for and negotiated options such as:

Study Leave - For each week the staff member included in their package the company provided an additional week
Parental Leave - Taken over varied time periods and with the company topping up the minimum allowance to maintain the standard wage
Work from Home - Or alternative hours arrangements to suit your worklife integration
Accommodation Provided - Accommodation provided by the company as part of the package
Internship Supervision - Costs covered by the company 


However this list is not comprehensive, we want you to tell us what sort of supports can help you to grow and develop mastery over your craft in a positive and enduring experience!

​Great Location

With offices in great locations in the Central West of New South Wales and more planned to be open, this role opens the door to a different lifestyle.  Personally, I love it!  Instead of a commute - from my front doorstep to the office is a 7 minute drive with minimal traffic.  Regional centres offer all the benefits of a metro area without all the hassles.
