We’re Hiring! Receptionist/Clinic Assistant ✨

We are seeking an all-knowing, all-caring, front-of-house & administration angel for Zhong Centre; Australia’s leading TCM clinic, offering cosmetic (or aesthetic) acupuncture, health acupuncture, and intravenous (IV) vitamin therapy.  We’re not a regular TCM clinic, we’re a *cool* TCM clinic!

2023 and beyond call for different paths and new adventures, so why not start a career that you can call your own? With a combination of work-life balance, an avenue for growth, and encouragement to be your own personality, this part-time role is based in an allied medical clinic that is experiencing exponential growth.

Working alongside a team of registered Acupuncturists and Nurses, you will be the first and last point of contact for all clients who come into the clinic. You’ll be the voice on the phone and the magic behind the emails; the one who our clients will get to know as well as they know their practitioner. Your high energy, coupled with the professionalism of wanting to be the best you can be, and the need to lift others around you up will exude from the reception desk, right down the halls and into the treatment rooms.

Your outward enthusiasm will be equally matched by your inward desire to be organised and in control of each day – Yin Yang anyone? Client relations are just as important as what happens behind the scenes, and these responsibilities will include administration, taking care of stock, organisation of the clinic’s booking system, and keeping the presentation of the rooms and front desk to the highest of standards.  Your foresight is unmatched, multitasking your thang, and your initiative a thing of beauty!
