Our Culture

“What you believe about a person will influence what they can achieve and who they can become.”

At Young Allied Health, we truly believe that beliefs and attitude shape performance and potential. This is why we always expect and believe the best for each of our staff and clients.

Young Allied Health is a family owned local business in Townsville. What we love about being a small business is that no member of the team is just a number, but we’re a family. We are committed to the professional and personal development of each of our team members and take pride in supporting the clinicians in achieving clinical excellence. We do this by offering regular team meetings, access to in house and external professional development, and our commitment to continuous reflection, learning, and quality improvement in all processes.

Through living out our values as a business, we enjoy a strong team culture where the team truly feels like a family. Each member of the team knows they are valued and we love getting together for our staff meetings, laughing over lunch, or letting our hair down at social events.

Current Opportunities

New-Graduate Clinic Program

We love having new graduate clinicians at Young Allied Health! The enthusiasm and fresh perspective is always an exciting addition to the team and we enjoy watching the confidence grow of our new clinicians. To help make the transition to working life as a clinician smoother and provide the appropriate supports, we have a few additional processes in place. For new graduate clinicians, expectations for how many clients you see in a day will be reduced in comparison to more experienced clinicians. The expectation is that you will start with a smaller caseload during the first part of the year and slowly build your caseload and expectations per term.

As part of these supports, you will be provided with:
– Opportunity to observe sessions of other clinicians (both speech and OT)
– Weekly supervision (by a senior clinician of your same discipline)
– Structured induction program to orient you to all Young Allied Health policies and procedures
– Fortnightly staff meetings
– Monthly clinical case focused meetings
– Generous professional development allowances to access external PD
– Additional in-house professional development opportunities as part of our team training days


Our occupational therapist new graduate positions have now been filled for 2023.
