  • A minimum of five years’ post-graduate clinical experience as a practitioner dealing with the public
  • A current Annual Practising Certificate

The indicative starting salary for this role will be $78,468. This is exclusive of ACC’s 9% superannuation contribution which would bring the total starting package to $85,530.
