An exciting opportunity for an experienced acupuncturist / Chinese herbal medicine practitioner to join our Fertile Ground Health Group Acupuncture team is now available.
Are you our new Acupuncturist?
Fertile Ground Health Group practitioners are leaders in their respective professions for IVF support, fertility and pregnancy related treatments and are well respected among medical specialists and experts within this area of practice. The launch of the new preconception bible (Create A Fertile Life) by the team at Fertile Ground, along with moving to beautiful new premises and creating The Melbourne Apothecary, has seen huge growth for us in what evidently (and very sadly) has been a devastating year for many other practices and dispensaries.
We are ready to grow our team and we are looking for our next incredible Acupuncturist. To be eligible for this position on our Acupuncture team, you already have passion, confidence and experience in reproductive health, pre-conception care, infertility, IVF/ART, pregnancy, birth and beyond. Importantly, you also have a point of difference and love treating conditions or patient groups we don’t already have covered by our expert practitioners.
Sound like a fantastic opportunity for you? Would you like to join us?
Benefits of being on our Acupuncture team
You will have a fabulous, supportive team of well-known professionals to work, grow and collaborate with, along with a highly experienced business management and support team to guide, develop and expand your professional profile. You will have new patients waiting to see you and the established reputation of Fertile Ground Health Group to provide you with a consistent flow of patients on an ongoing basis. You will also have an opportunity to develop a mentee relationship with one of our highly experienced Chinese medicine practitioners in the area of fertility, IVF and pregnancy if this is of interest to you.
Is this you?
You value collaboration and your ability to develop referrer relationships and patient results are a must. You want to establish yourself as a leader in your profession and you are willing and ready to raise your profile through opportunities that excite you (or even scare you at least a little in all the juicy, good growth ways). You understand the value of writing blogs and social media, marketing contribution, networking, speaking opportunities (to health professionals or patient groups), running workshops, classes or support groups (in person, on zoom or on social media). The opportunities for growth within our team are endless, especially with your full access to all the foundational goods that come as part of the extensive springboard that is Fertile Ground Health Group.
What we’re looking for
We are looking for an experienced Chinese medicine practitioner who would like to simplify the work involved in running a business, who is ready to focus on being a fantastic and fully supported practitioner, dedicating efforts to growing patient reach and enhancing their profile and career with Fertile Ground Health Group.
Mentoring in the specific field of fertility and IVF is also available for the right candidate if needed.
Practice session times
You will need to commit to a minimum of three sessions per week including alternate Saturdays (if not every Saturday). You will be working in one of Australia’s most intentionally beautiful and vibrant clinic spaces with an extensive dispensary supplying all of your prescription needs. We stock a Chinese raw herb, granule and pill dispensary and supply needles, moxa, and general equipment and other needs for practice. There is an extensive nutrition and western herbal dispensary available at The Melbourne Apothecary too.
What is The Melbourne Apothecary?
The Melbourne Apothecary (MA) as been created to provide Melbourne’s first prescription-only naturopathic dispensary, serving the Fertile Ground Health Group team as well as filling prescriptions for Naturopaths all over Australia. The MA serves to protect the privacy of our fertility and IVF patients (for those who need it) along with opening up to the general health population as a street-frontage “shop”. It is a truly beautiful space and strives to be an example of what is possible.
