Private Practice Dietitian – Fuel Your Life

Queensland

- Application due: 17/09/21

Contractor

Want a flexible role that will give you experience across a vast range of dietetic clients? Want a role where you call your own shots but are supported by over 45 other experienced dietitians? Want to be a part of a company that wants to see the real you every single day and not just another carbon-copy graduate?

Then, we definitely have the role for you!

We are seeking an Accredited Practising Dietitian Contractor to join our youthful, fast-paced and quality orientated dietetic organisation. We are the largest dietetic private practice in Australia, operating across over 250 locations consisting of gyms, medical centre, aged care facilities and more. In 2020 we have partnered with elite sporting clubs of the Melbourne Storm, Melbourne Victory, and Brisbane Roar. We have achieved this growth in only 4 years and are looking to continue to build the business into all aspects of dietetics that any dietitian would want. We want this company to be where you achieve every goal you have.

As a company we focus heavily on the support and development of our staff and the culture that breeds. You will have access to over $750’000 worth of professional development each year. We are no fuss, straight-forward and action-orientated. For us, your attitude is the more important than your skills, experience, or knowledge. We train you clinically, but we can’t force you to open to learning. People who can demonstrate the right attitude and mentality are what we are looking for.

We aren’t some corporation where you won’t have anything to do with the people that lead the company. Everyone has a name, a face, and you will become a member of our team. Tyson Tripcony and Peta Cullis, who lead this company, are both experienced dietitians and ensure that all processes of the company are focused on the support and development of dietitians.

Our vision is to become the greatest dietetics organisation of all time.

Our Practice

Our dietitians are open to all ways of practice.  We practice using all treatment options, all tools in our toolbox, in the best interests of our client and what they want to achieve. We will challenge what you believe is possible and help you achieve the best results for your clients in the short and long term. We are an all-inclusive practice, with the client at the center of the care, with their goals and needs at the forefront.

Dietitian’s wishing to practice in ONLY one way and are not open to practising in many different ways, implementing many different strategies to get the best results for their clients, need not apply.

Our Values

  • We do not pretend to be anyone but ourselves.
  • We are not intimidated by challenges and seek to face them.
  • We are obsessed with growth but remain humble.
  • We make decisions and act quickly.
  • We are always on hand but will not handhold.
  • We are a team of misfits with a common goal.

The Role

We currently have a role available in Townsville, QLD (Job ID: CD42). This is an existing role, with a full workload ready for the successful applicant to take on straight away.

The role will consist of seeing clients across Townsville and the surrounding regions to provide one-to-one nutrition advice and support. You will see clients in their homes, in medical practices and clinics, and within gyms (depending on the region and what works best for the client). You may see a range of people, ranging from Veterans, NDIS clients, weight loss and management clients, and pre- and post-surgery clients, among others.

As part of this role, there will be the flexibility to book in your clients, arranging appointments to maximise your effectiveness and efficiency during your days and optimise your work:life balance. Please note: a valid Driver’s License and car are required for this role. Though you will have the support of our admin team, you will be responsible for ensuring your clinical notes are completed for each appointment, and that all relevant paperwork for each client is continuously up to date. Paid marketing is a part of the role and will be essential to your success. This includes presenting to GP clinics, sporting clubs, and RSL’s, among other venues.

We offer a huge range of optional supports for everyone within our company, to help them (and you) be the best dietitian possible. This starts with professional development and support from Senior Dietitians within the company (as well as the creators of @dietitian.life). We will not hold your hand, but we will support you in every way possible to see you succeed. What you put into this role, is what you will get out of it. Quick career advancement is possible for the right applicants – in the last 18 months we have had 6 staff move into management roles within 12 months of joining the team.

The opportunity is there for you to shape these roles to suit you. If a certain aspect of dietetics interests you, we will encourage you to pursue it where possible. We encourage all our staff to be up front about their goals, so we can move the organisation for YOU!

Remember that no matter where you work for us in Australia we ensure that you get the same experience that you would anywhere else in Australia. The big positive of working for a national company like ours is that if you work for us for 18 months anywhere in Australia, and then you wish to move “back home” to continue your career, we could look to move you within the company and do just that!

We encourage all experienced and new graduates to apply – your attitude is more important than your skills.

Other locations may be available in the future as well. We will be shortlisting, interviewing and hiring as applications are received, so don’t wait, get in quick!

Please ensure your application is in PDF format and notes the Job ID of the role. You must hold, or have applied to obtain, Accredited Practising Dietitian status to be eligible for this position.
