We have a unique opportunity for a Behavior Support Practitioner to work in a supportive, high performing team to make a real impact on recidivism and reintegration within a marginalised group of the community.
The Australian Community Support Organisation (ACSO) is a dynamic, values-driven NFP, focused on partnering with Government and the community to co-design services that create real social change. We’re an organisation with a bold vision to create a safe and inclusive community freed of crime and prisons. It’s our goal to reduce re-offending and our mission is to help people transition from prison, assist them in the community, stop them from re-offending, and intervene to divert others from committing crime.
The Behaviour Support Practitioner (BSP) will be expected to work closely with ACSO’s High Risk and Complex Needs managers and staff, to assess clients' behavioural needs, develop behavioural change programs and to evaluate the effectiveness of those programs for the person and the overall service. Behaviour Support Practitioners are responsible for overseeing the use of restrictive intervention under the Disability Act with high-risk clients in the community. BSP’s are required to complete administrative tasks, as well as face to face work with clients and their support staff. BSP’s are also involved in providing high-level clinical consultation and training to other areas of ACSO.

ACSO embraces diversity within its workforce and as such encourages applications from appropriately qualified and skilled people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, including those from Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander heritage. ACSO acknowledges the traditional Aboriginal owners of country throughout Victoria and pays respect to them, their culture and their Elders, past, present and future.
