Senior Positive Behaviour Support Practitioner

Community Services Bespoke Solutions

We are looking for a superstar… or maybe even a unicorn... to become our inaugural Senior Positive Behaviour Support Practitioner. You will join our highly engaged and motivated team who allshare an energy, passion and drive to create lives with meaning for people with disability.

We are on a mission to find someone who is a leader in their current profession, and who wants to be a leader in the disability sector. Someone who isn’t afraid to be groundbreaking in their approach. Someone who will rise to a challenge and is fierce in their relentless drive to ensure people with disability are supported the way they choose.

Community Services Bespoke Solutions exists to support people with disability to live an independent life on their terms. Everything we do is focused on working alongside Participants to develop their capability and independence and become the director of their own life; make their own decisions, speak up about what they want, and how they want their supports and services delivered – to live the life they choose.

We want someone who is a go-getter and a force to be reckoned with when it comes to Human Rights. Someone who intrinsically understands that enabling people to live their lives and make meaningful choices is best done by assessing, creating, developing and implementing Positive Behaviour Support strategies with a holistic focus.

You will share our passion for real life outcomes and a desire to change community perceptions and acceptance. You will dream of working within a highly motivated team that develops bespoke solutions for people with disability and complex needs. You will have enough passion to stay motivated when faced with systemic challenges.

You should be the type of person who understands that colouring outside of the lines is sometimes the best approach and you will definitely need to be comfortable operating in the grey… rather than the black and white space. You will be happier working WITH people rather than doing FOR them and you will be energised by the work that you do.

As an experienced practitioner, you will be focused on engaging with a Participant and their stakeholders to build your understanding of the Participant’s life world. You will take the time to understand not only the function of the Participant’s behaviour, but to also carefully consider their environment, history, personal interactions, identified goals and more. You will bring the information gathered and assessments completed to life through the development of a Positive Behaviour Support Plan, developed and underpinned by evidence-based practices. You will implement the plan in conjunction with the Participant and support team whilst maintaining ongoing engagement with all stakeholders.

Does this sound like you so far? Great! Please read on…

You will need to be comfortable working closely with a wide variety of people – including people with disability and/or mental illness, support workers, Nominees and Guardians, extended support networks and other professionals involved in supporting the Participant.

With a proven track record in positive behaviour support, you will be responsible for:

  • developing individual strategies to meet the needs of people with disability and people with complex mental health issues with a focus on reducing the occurrence and impact of behaviours of concern and minimise the use of restrictive practices.
  • undertaking behaviour support assessments (including functional behaviour assessments) and develop behaviour support plans that may contain the use of restrictive practices.
  • collaborating with external support services and stakeholders to ensure a Participant’s behaviour support strategies are appropriately developed and managed.
  • planning and facilitating training for support workers and / or teams
  • providing information and advice to Participants and their families / carers / nominees about restrictive practices.
  • Lodging Positive Behaviour Support Plans containing regulated restrictive practice/s with the relevant authorities and preparing and uploading monthly reports on the use of restrictive practices to the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.

This is a new role for CSBS, and our new superstar will be responsible for the development of ‘how we do, what we do’. This will include building the team of supports around you, informing and leading the development of structures and resources and establishing networks to build an organisation-wide positive behaviour support framework.

Stand out skills and values:

  • A thorough understanding of the external systems, how they interrelate and how to navigate them, to support participants, providers, guardians and nominees to manage Restrictive Practices.
  • A thorough working knowledge of the NDIS Commission system and expectations of providers
  • A very strong commitment to ensuring the Human Rights for people with a disability are upheld
  • A strong alignment with advocacy of all levels that enables people with a disability to live the life they choose and deserve
  • You will share our firm belief that a PBSP is only effective if implemented properly.
  • You will have a strong desire to continually develop and lead staff practice.
  • You will have a sound ability to think divergently and to fearlessly innovate with the people whose lives your actions will impact on.

We would like you to demonstrate:

  • A formal qualification, relevant registration and experience in delivering Positive Behaviour Support solutions.
  • A sound knowledge of Positive Behaviour Support Models and Restrictive Practices.
  • A strong commitment to deliver evidence-based, functional behavioural outcomes.
  • Meet capability requirements for approval as a NDIS Behaviour Support Practitioner.

Essential Requirements

  • Relevant legislative personal history probity checks, including Yellow Card and Blue Card Positive Notices, or the ability to gain and maintain these.
  • Demonstrated intermediate ability to use Microsoft Office software, Client Management systems and the willingness to learn new systems and technology.
  • An Open Driver’s License and reliable vehicle.
  • The ability and willingness to travel within the Brisbane, Gold Coast & Sunshine Coast regions.

Flexible working hours & location options

This role is full-time with flexible working hours.

Depending on your preference, you could be based at our Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, or Gold Coast Office and commute to various locations within these regions to support NDIS Participants and their support workers. You will also have the flexibility to work from home as required.
