There is also the potential to be involved in workshops and retreats.
Part-time or Full-time available.
We know you want to work somewhere that has the utmost professionalism but where people aren’t afraid to have a laugh! We know you want to feel connected to the people you work with.

We aim to be flexible in the ways that you need, to support you to live your best life. You will enjoy full autonomy over your calendar, choose the hours you work. You could do 2 sessions in the morning go the gym, come home and do another 3 sessions. If you have young children you may want to save on childcare by doing a couple of sessions at night, it is entirely up to you.
You will have a regular one-on-one catch up with our Clinical Director to assist with any clinical support needs. Our warm, caring and highly skilled support team are available to assist you and meet any needs as they arise. Our support team are our cultural ambassadors. They create a warm and welcoming environment for our clients and our team, they drive opportunities for connection, they are kind and compassionate and inject joy and laughter into the everyday.

We also provide a comprehensive on-boarding process and an informal buddy system for new team members. We value learning and connection, we are committed to providing opportunities through online mediums but also believe that face to face connection is invaluable. One of the things we are most proud of is our annual professional development retreat.
We offer competitive remuneration, including an annual professional development allowance. We value loyalty and you will enjoy increasing financial remuneration the longer you are part of our team. We offer flexible, transparent non-restrictive contractor arrangements.

Stirling Connections aims to offer our team the flexibility to live the life they want. Perhaps you want to work from home with young children, travel around Australia, or you are looking for flexibility to build session hours around the things you enjoy - a yoga session, morning at the beach, time with family, or catching up with friends.
We emphasise building a great culture as we believe if you create a great place to work you attract the best people and in turn the highest quality care for our clients.
