About your opportunity

Casual position. Hours as required.

The Psychology Service at the Townsville University Hospital provides enhanced access for patients and access to psychological assessments and interventions that contribute to the patient's ongoing clinical management and care.

The role will:

  • Deliver best practice psychological (clinical, health, and psychometric) services to patients and their families in collaboration with the multidisciplinary teams.
  • Manage an appropriate caseload using effective time management and prioritisation skills, including clinical and non-clinical responsibilities and the maintenance of accurate patient records and documentation. As experience builds, apply increasingly independent clinical judgement to more complex clinical decision making under the clinical practice supervision of a more senior psychologist.
  • Provide support and cover as required across services in order of priority of service needs if required and as directed.

Casual pay rates are between $48.22-$64.69 p.h. (HP3), plus there is up to 12.75% employer contribution to superannuation.


  • Applicants must possess an Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) accredited four-year qualification in Psychology, and be eligible for provisional or general registration with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA), Psychology Board of Australia (PsychBA).
  • While not mandatory, a PsychBA Area of Practice Endorsement in Clinical Psychology or Health Psychology would be highly regarded, as would PsychBA approved Supervisor status.
  • A Criminal History check will be undertaken.
  • This is a VPD risk role.
