Work in a therapist’s wonderland

You’ll love coming to work in our ‘rainforest sanctuary’ – our purpose-built biophilic environment featuring natural materials,
floor-to-ceiling natural light and many beautiful plants.

We have applied the principles of trauma-informed care, body positivity and neurodiversity-affirming practice to create an
inclusive, calming space for consumers and staff.

Grow in community

So often, healthcare professionals work in isolation even when surrounded by colleagues.

In contrast, The Talbot Centre emphasises belonging and community as a part of our vision. We believe that people thrive when they are connected in community with others. This is important not only for our clients but for our staff as well.

Your work role is designed in such a way that there are many opportunities to be actively engaged as part of TTC community, with colleagues of similar and varied backgrounds and experiences.

At TTC we do not just sit in our rooms or pass like ships in the night, you will be engaged in teams, doing meaningful work together as well as your individual client work. We also have shared break times and a social committee that ensures maximum opportunities for social connectedness – and there is always plenty of food!

Grow in community

Career by DesignTM

Our drive to transform healthcare is not only for our clients and community. It is also for our staff.

Healthcare professionals do vital, meaningful work, often at great personal cost. The system, as it currently stands, preys on our compassion for our patients and pushes us to work in an unsustainable manner that often leads to burnout.

We developed Career by DesignTM to innovate the way we work in order to enable our staff to enjoy a long, sustainable, rewarding career that makes a difference.

Self-care outside work is important for personal refreshment. But it cannot be the whole answer. Work itself needs to change.

As part of our value of Learn-Share-Grow, we share lessons as we change the design of work to support each of our healthcare practitioners.

In Career by DesignTM, we work with you to:
  • Understand your professional and personal priorities and structure a role (or the steps towards it) that facilitates the best outcomes for both
  • Schedule regular conversations about any shifts in priorities (recognising that these can change over time), realigning plans to reflect the new situation

Best of all, we don’t make you go down only one path. You can choose to pursue several different areas of interest – just as our founder, Dr Amy Talbot, did.

quotation mark

Part of my story, part of the reason I started The Talbot Centre, is that I wanted to do lots of different things in my work. 

I enjoyed some niche areas of practice but I was interested in research, management, leadership, supervision, training and development. I liked working with both kids and adults. 

There was no job where I could do all those things – and I didn’t want 5 different piecemeal jobs so I created a role where I could explore many different areas of interest at once.
