Individualised Growth

Your professional journey matters to us. As part of the LS family, you'll be supported in understanding and articulating your individual needs and career aspirations. We are committed to assisting you in developing skills that align with your interests and helping you evolve into the best clinician you can be. 

 

Flexibility in Practice

We understand that a fulfilling career is one that adapts to your needs. Negotiate your working hours, explore flexible arrangements and enjoy options like a 9-day fortnight, and RDO every month or flex time. Your work-life balance is not just acknowledged; it's actively encouraged. 

You'll also have the opportunity to provide flexible support options to your clients, based on best practice guidelines, and not based on how an administrator chooses to book your calendar up. We focus on the needs of each client, so through supervision, you can develop individualised plans for clients that may include more than 1 session per week, group sessions, community visits or functional treatment options. Flexibility is also carried over to our service delivery.
