About the role

Cire Community School is a leader in delivering innovative programs to students from Years 5 to 12 who have disengaged from education. The Community School offers an alternative to mainstream schooling, supporting some of the region’s most vulnerable and marginalised young people.

Unlike a traditional Wellbeing role, our Positive Behaviour Support specialist aims to work proactively rather than reactively. The role offers a unique opportunity to focus your attention on identifying, recording and interpreting student observations before recommending supports to increase students’ participation and engagement in their learning. Cire Community School provides a therapeutic environment, ensuring the PBS framework is delivered through a trauma-informed lens.

Working as part of a truly cohesive team, you will collaborate with students, teachers, and learning support professionals to establish strategies that reduce the likelihood of dysregulation. On a day-to-day basis, you will identify and support students requiring assistance with their wellbeing needs; encouraging engagement, providing interventions and referrals, working with external professionals and student support groups, liaising with parents/guardians and providing programs to student groups. Your days will be varied, always active and working with purpose to support the overall wellbeing of Cire students.

Due to our Monbulk Campus opening in Term 1, 2024, Cire has multiple permanent part-time opportunities, 4 days per week, commencing flexibly from now through to next year.

The Perks

At Cire, we know that our employees are our greatest asset. That’s why we offer a competitive salary and benefits package that helps you keep more of your hard-earned money. With salary packaging and novated leasing, you can reduce your taxable income and put more money back in your pocket. And because we’re a not-for-profit organisation, you’ll feel great knowing your work directly benefits some of the most vulnerable people in our community.

In addition to competitive salaries, we offer a range of benefits that include access to EAP services, discounted childcare, and discounted courses. We also offer ongoing support and mentoring to help you grow in your career. So, if you’re looking for an organisation that values its employees, come join us at Cire.
