At Aruma, we support people with disabilities to live great lives. It's the reason we exist - after all, why should anyone have to settle for anything less? And to make this a reality, we rely on the skill and commitment of our Aruma team.

When you're a part of the Aruma team, you're not just supporting people. You're pioneering new paths, challenging assumptions, daring to think differently, and telling society to raise its bar much higher.

About You

You are someone with a strong commitment to human rights and person-centred approaches. You will be familiar with supporting people with a disability (physical, developmental, psychosocial), their families and support teams to assist them to achieve their goals.

This role is a great fit for a skilled case manager or clinician with experience in complex behaviour. Applications from provisional psychologists with relevant skills and experience will also be considered. Behaviour Support Practitioner roles have previously been approved by AHPRA as a part of the 5+1 internship pathway to registration as a psychologist.
