Behaviour Support Practitioner – Flexible Hours! Kameleon Group

JOB DESCRIPTION

  • Are you an experienced Behaviour Support Practitioner who is passionate about behaviour, and committed to person-centred best practice? 
  • Are you experienced working with participants who have complex and challenging behaviours?
  • Apply now to join our team, and utilise your behaviour support skills!

Due to client growth, we are recruiting in the Hobart and surrounding area for Behaviour Support Practitioners who have experience working with participants across all age groups, in a very flexible and autonomous role, either part-time or full-time.

About us

At Kameleon Group, we deliver Specialist Behaviour Support services. We utilise proven methods to provide Positive Behaviour Support.  Our practice is supported by Trauma-Informed Care and other proven methods of Behaviour Support. 

We are an NDIS-registered provider, and we work throughout QLD, NSW, and TAS. Some of our practitioners specialise, but across the entire organisation, we work with all ages, all diagnoses, and all behaviour. 

We utilise an array of technologies to allow you to focus on delivering exceptional services in an efficient way – you probably didn’t get into this field for the admin time, so we work to keep that to a minimum!

About the role:

This is a hybrid working from home and mobile role. You will be based at home (no commute!) and will go out to visit people in their homes, schools, workplaces, programs, and in the community. 

Being a behaviour support specialist involves working with people and their support networks to bring about behavioural change. We do this by understanding the relationship between a person’s environment (social and physical) and their behaviour, and then influencing that person’s environment so that it sets them up for success. Another important part of the role is supporting skill development, to ensure people have effective ways to get their needs met.

Our practitioners meet with clients, conduct assessments, analyse behavioural data, develop strategies and Positive Behaviour Support Plans (PBSPs), support implementation of those strategies and plans, monitor progress, and review where necessary. The role involves other elements, too – connecting with other team members, attending training, participating in projects or research, facilitating workshops, and more. We are proud to have a diverse and passionate team, and we support people to lean into their strengths and interests. 

About you 

  • You are a Behaviour Support practitioner preferably with 2+ years experience 
  • You are registered with the NDIS as a Behaviour Support Practitioner (Core level or above)
  • You value integrity, collaboration, and transparency 
  • You are passionate about this work – the science and the people 
  • You are friendly, empathetic, and a clear communicator 
  • You have relevant undergraduate qualifications (Psychology, Social Work, Counselling, Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology, Early Childhood, Teaching, Mental Health, ABA etc.)
  • Ideally, you have postgraduate qualifications or are working toward them
  • You have experience working with children and people with disability, and you are familiar with the NDIS 
  • You have experience undertaking functional assessments and developing PBSPs 
  • You have experience in coaching families and support workers, ideally in implementing PBSPs that you have written 
  • You are Covid-19 vaccinated + boosted, as per NDIS requirements 
  • You have a current driver license, and an insured roadworthy vehicle 
  • NDIS worker screening checks, Working With Vulnerable People clearance, and any other checks required in Tasmania
