At Melios our Neurodevelopmental Clinical Team provides high quality online autism and ADHD assessments and interventions. We are an innovative company and always strive to do the right thing for our clients and our workforce, and we’re looking for people who want to do things differently too.

We pride ourselves on working together as a team - no easy win, considering everyone is home-based and we span from the southwest of England, to Ireland and even up to the Outer Hebrides in Scotland! We are the true meaning of mutli-disciplinary - not just clinically but also working with our growth and commercial team, and our all important administrative team members. By having dedicated administrative support, clinicians are able to focus on the clinical aspects of their roles whilst being confident that they have support around session booking, responding to client queries and managing their caseloads.

We require clinicians who are committed to delivering the best outcomes for neurodiverse children, young people, adults and their families.

At Melios we pride ourselves in both our clinical quality and our speed of delivery of service and are seeking exceptional clinicians who can support us on this mission. Our clinical team is highly efficient and everyone takes pride in moving cases through our service, to achieve outcomes for families as soon as possible, without compromising on quality and clinical robustness.
