The Child Development Network (CDN) is seeking an enthusiastic, experienced, and self-motivated Clinical Psychologist to join our team to provide clinical psychology treatment services for children and families.
Hours are negotiable, but would ideally encompass at least 2 days per week once established.
This is an opportunity to join a well-established, successful, private multidisciplinary service in Park Road, Milton, one of the best areas of Brisbane.
Our team includes paediatricians, psychology (clinical and neuropsychology), educational services, and collaborative partnerships with allied health. The service is well set up to meet the clinical challenges of children who have complex developmental special needs.
From its beginnings in 2001, the CDN continues to grow and develop. We have new people joining our clinical and administrative teams. The service operates with freshness and forward thinking.
At the CDN, you will enjoy a collegiate working environment, established administrative systems and a strong referral base from all over Queensland. You will have the opportunity to build your own practice as quickly as you wish.
The CDN is a company with a small board of directors, all of whom work in the practice. For the right applicant, opportunity exists after an appropriate period of time to buy shares into the practice, and join the board as a director.
All CDN clinicians are self-employed, operating their private practice within the organisation under a service agreement.
The CDN structure allows our professionals to collaborate around the care of the children and adolescents we see, and to learn from each other.
Clinicians working in private practice enjoy a close partnership with families over time. Each child presents a unique opportunity to learn as you follow progress. This will enable you to build your professional knowledge, skills and confidence in a manner that cannot be achieved any other way.
The CDN is located in the heart of Milton, an established ‘cafe district’ of Brisbane. We are a short stroll from the railway station and the river (ferry terminal).
The precinct is welcoming and family friendly, with a range of dining options and boutique shops. Our less formal meetings tend to occur al fresco, accompanied by good wine and food.
From the outset, our clinical purpose at the CDN has been excellence in child development, learning and behaviour. In addition to helping children in the short term, we focus on longitudinal care towards optimised long term outcomes. We are strongly networked with schools and professional colleagues.
To achieve this, the CDN management has worked hard to build a robust infrastructure so that clinicians can concentrate on their practice.
We have great staff, both administrative and clinical, a number of whom have been with the service for many years. It is a good place to work. If you come to the CDN, it is likely that you will want to stay.
We operate using primarily paperless systems. Our software is tailored not only to support individual practice, but also to facilitate collaboration between CDN clinicians for individual children.
Brisbane is a city that is coming of age. Located on the beautiful Brisbane river, it is a physically attractive city with good infrastructure and a pleasant climate.
The pace in Brisbane is gentler than Sydney or Melbourne. It is a great place to raise a family. Housing is still modestly priced. There are plenty of good schools spread over a wide geographical area.
