Welcome to CBC!
Here at Complex Behaviour Change Pty Ltd we are champions of change! While we might be the new player in the NDIS Registered Provider space, we are already a respected and much sought-after service, with a proven track record of providing quality life enhancing services for people of all abilities. In fact, to ensure the quality and effectiveness of our services, we train, coach, and supervise our staff to live our values and implement our model of practice. Putting our participants first, our aim is to be a sector leader in the world of disability support across Victoria and eventually Australia! To do this we need you - staff who dare to think differently, who want to make a difference in the lives of people, and who strive to be the best they can be. So, if you want to stand out and have a fulfilling career, then join us today!

About You…
• You are a qualified and experienced behaviour support or therapeutic support practitioner, self-driven and able to work independently, with strong commitment to human rights and person-centred approaches.
• You will be familiar with supporting people with a disability and/or complex needs, their family and support teams to assist them to achieve their goals.
• You will be an excellent team member and communicator, and able to work effectively as part of a multi/inter-disciplinary team to provide a holistic approach to high quality positive behaviour and therapeutic supports.

No matter where you live in Victoria if you have these attributes and a passion for fostering positive change in the lives of vulnerable people, we are keen to know more about you.

About the Role…
We are excited to be building our capacity to provide specialist behaviour support and therapeutic supports to NDIS participants across Victoria. To achieve this, we are establishing local area-based teams of Specialist Services practitioners in metropolitan and regional hubs across the state. As our new Practitioner in our Specialist Services team, you will be responsible for providing specialist support services to NDIS participants across the lifespan or students in school or children in out of home care, and support teams.

Integral to your success will be your participant focused people practices, your ability to role model our organisational values and to provide safe and quality services. The role involves a 6-month probation period for all new employees and requires all practitioners to participate in an 8-week intensive Practitioner Development Program (PDP).

Given that we are establishing our services, committed and experienced staff who demonstrate exceptional practice during the PDP and subsequent work, will be considered for future leadership roles within the local area teams or across the state. Staff who do not role model our values or meet our minimum standards of practice during the PDP or anytime thereafter during the probation period will not be able to continue with CBC.

  • Experience working with individuals, families, and children with a disability and/or complex needs
  • Experience providing training & coaching to teams and supporters
  • Ability to work effectively with a range of stakeholders including individuals, families, support teams, Local Area Coordinators, NDIA, the Office of the Public Guardian, schools, government agencies and specialist support services
