Role Type: Full time or part time positions available
This practice is a growing children's therapy service located in tropical Mackay, Queensland. We provide friendly, high quality clinic and community-based services, and have strong links and collaborate frequently with other local and state wide pediatrics services.
We believe that all children, regardless of their abilities or differences, have value and should be given opportunity to achieve that value. To achieve this, we work hard to support parents and families, provide high quality therapy, and develop a supportive, enriched and inclusive environment and community. We love what we do, and cherish and celebrate our client and team achievements and successes.
Mackay is a regional city located on the coast of Central Queensland, with 15 different beaches located within a 5-30 minute drive of the city heart. To the North of Mackay is Airlie Beach and the Whitsunday Islands (approx 1.5-hour drive), and to the West is the Eungella National Park (1-hour drive) which provides a great location for exploring bushwalking and camping. Mackay is a large enough town so that it’s community does not miss out on the city perks such as major shows and sporting events, festivals and many community supports, but is also small enough to be friendly and welcoming.
