Our meet and greets are complimentary 1-hour (maximum) sessions to allow both parties to find out whether they are a good fit for each other. You will have a complimentary meet and greet with each allied health assistant that you are interested in if they have submitted their application.
During the meet and greet, both parties should discuss as much as possible to ensure they will be a suitable fit. Topics to cover should include availability, expectations, experience and ongoing sessions. Please refer to our meet and greet guide for more information about what happens and what should be discussed.
We will aim to reach out to you - however, it would be great if you could email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know how it went!
