Behaviour Support Practitioner Flexible Hours Kameleon Group

JOB DESCRIPTION

  • Are you an experienced Behaviour Support Specialist who is passionate about behaviour, and committed to person-centred best practice? 
  • Would you like to join a progressive team who will support and value you? 
  • Utilise your behaviour support skills! 

This role will provide Behaviour Support services to the Logan and surrounding areas. We have a particular need for a practitioner who has experience working across all ages.  

We are also looking for practitioners in the Ipswich and Brisbane Area.  If your location and age group specialisation isn’t listed in our adverts, but there is a need for Specialist Behaviour Support in your area, please get in touch with us!

About us

We are an NDIS-registered provider, and we work throughout QLD, NSW, and Tasmania. 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 role has the flexbility to either be part-time or full-time.  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 (ABA, Psychology, Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology, Early Childhood, Teaching, Mental Health)
  • 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 for QLD, including both the Yellow Card and Blue Card checks.

What we offer our employees: 

Great remuneration and benefits 

  • Competitive pay – scaled based upon experience and qualifications
  • Regular pay reviews
  • Investment in external professional development opportunities which align with your professional development goals
