About the new service

The Royal Commission into Victoria’s Mental Health System has challenged us to think beyond incremental improvement to deliver a mental health system that helps all Victorians live their best lives. In a region characterised by fragmentation, complexity, and access barriers, implementing the Greater Geelong and Borough of Queenscliffe (GGQ) Local Mental Health and Wellbeing Service is a key step in realising this goal.

The GGC Local Mental Health and Wellbeing Service is delivered by a consortium of equal partners: Barwon Health, Watharoung Aboriginal Cooperative Ltd, Wellways Australia and ERMHA365.

The GGC Local Service is underpinned by positivity, hope and inclusion. No matter whether a consumer, carer or provider enters or seeks assistance via digital platforms, contact centre, or physical locations, the first engagement will always start with a simple question: “Welcome, how can we help?” Drawing on established services, networks, and pathways, the GGC Local Services provides seamless integration between local, area and wellbeing services for the benefit of consumers, carers, and providers. This is supported through standardised assessment tools, treatment and support processes, care plans and care coordination, colocation of services and regional navigational pathways.

The three core elements of our service are people, purpose, and place and we are seeking mental health professionals ready to be part of a central and accessible service that understands the needs of their community.

About the Roles

The vision of the Locals Service for the GGQ region is a unified, mental health and wellbeing system that is underpinned by the approach of “How can we help?’

We have a variety of opportunities suitable for mental health professionals to assist us in implementing this vision across a range of disciplines and experience levels.

Opportunities include:

  • Senior Mental Health Clinicians  

  • Clinical Allied Health Staff (Psychologist, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers)

  • Contact Centre Navigators

  • Concierge Reception Staff

The breadth of positions within the new service means we can provide candidates with career opportunities and working arrangements that can suit their individual circumstances and professional goals.

Please indicate in your application what positions/ roles for which you are interested.

Applicants may be contacted for interview prior to closing date.

Please note positions will be involved in the implementation phase of the service as well as clinical/operational functions.  At full operationalisation of the Locals Service, all positions will include a requirement of occasional after hours work.

  • Relocation Package & assistance available for suitable interstate candidates

  • Located in the centre of Geelong's CBD, we also offer an easier commute from the Western Suburbs of Melbourne, rather than travelling across the city

Diversity and Inclusion

We strongly encourage and warmly welcome people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, people with a lived experience of mental health and disability and people who identify as LGBTIQA+ to apply.
