NEW GRADS THROUGH TO EXPERIENCED LEADERS - OPEN TO ALL! 

Seeking talented therapists committed to sharing knowledge, improving their professional skills and changing the lives of the little people we work with.

We rarely talk of KPIs and talk regularly of how we can improve the service for our clients and work environment for our team. Come join a team who genuinely care for each other.

Sensational Kids has been running for 13 years offering tailor-made, individual and group therapy to our community. It is a company based on strong values of integrity, learning, fun, professionalism and innovation. We have a 9/10 Employee Happiness score from our team!

We see kids aged 0-18 and provide child and family-centred therapy incorporating a range of therapeutic models including DIR Floortime well as other models for best practice.

Our team is growing and we have the following positions available: 

ORMOND Full Time or Part Time position, employee or contractor options. All days available.

  • New grads: Reduced caseload and loads of time for learning.
  • More experienced clinicians will start with or work towards a leadership position within the team including supervision of more junior team members if you are keen on this.
  • Caseload will be a mix of face to face and telehealth with the majority of sessions in our purpose-built clinic rooms.  You will have your own room and computer/ laptop on site.

Who we are looking for: 

We are very careful with who we select to be part of our team, as our team is pretty special. We are looking for fun, energetic, positive team members who don't mind a challenge, thrive on an interesting and varied caseload and who are happy to support and be supported by our team.

We are looking for a therapist who is flexible, mature and knows how to ask for help when they need it. We are also importantly seeking someone who is happy working with a largely NDIS caseload and who is keen to further develop their clinical, professional and supervisory skills. We are a large team so there is plenty of opportunity to progress in your career with us.

Your role would include:

  • Assessment of children for various conditions utilising standard formal and informal measures
