Are you an Early Childhood Intervention Practitioner looking for the next step in your career? Do you have the drive to work with and learn from some of the most skilled Allied Health professionals within the disability sector? If you answered with a resounding YES, then read on about this wonderful opportunity!

Windermere’s Early Childhood Intervention Practitioners (ECIPs) provide services to children aged 0-7 years who have a disability or developmental delay. As a registered service provider under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and with more than 20 years’ of service delivery experience, a dynamic team ready for change and market presence in some of Australia’s fastest growing regions, Windermere are in a prime position for NDIS success. We want to share this with you.

About The Role

We are currently seeking a full-time SeniorECIP to join the Early Intervention Therapy Services (EITS) team. As a Senior ECIP, you will utilise the Key Worker model to provide a range of targeted early childhood therapy services to children aged 0-7 years. Your core focus will include:

  • Working in partnership with families in the natural environment to encourage children’s active participation in everyday routines;
  • Helping children to learn new skills by developing meaningful goals and providing strategies that are comprehensive and well-planned;
  • Delivering flexible and personalised therapy that is fundamental to children’s specific needs, and
  • Aiding consumers to navigate complex service systems to identify appropriate information and support.

As one of 5 senior workers, you will play a pivotal role in leading a team of 5 practitioners to deliver therapy services. You will also bring with you strong leadership, coaching and supervision experience to support, mentor and lead an established team of practitioners.

You will be tertiary qualified in Early Childhood Education and will have demonstrated experience working with children with additional needs within therapy services. You are organised, adaptable and enterprising in your practice. You are open to change, embrace feedback and work collaboratively with others. You can think on your feet and make decisions quickly. You appreciate continuous quality improvement and thrive in an environment which provides you with the opportunity to work autonomously as well as part of a high performing team. Your exceptional leadership and people skills with a natural ability to listen, learn, influence and build effective relationships with your team will be key to your success.
