ABOUT US

SKMV is a not-for-profit children’s charity committed to projects that support the most rural regions of Africa in the development of education, family advocacy and sustainable living. Alongside this, we are a provider of supports to the disability community in Australia with particular focus on Melbourne and Darwin.

Our initiatives across both charity and respite arms of the business aim to serve the vision that every person deserves a prosperous life, no matter their age or circumstance, and we are looking for someone like you to help us deliver exceptional value toward this mission.

At SKMV, we work closely with clients, their families and support network, to develop functional behaviour assessments and behaviour support plans that can be followed to ensure a reduction of behaviours of concern, a reduction of restrictive practices, and improvement of quality of life.

THE OPPORTUNITY

We are looking for an engaging and experienced Behaviour Support Practitioner (BSP) to join our rapidly growing team in Darwin.

This is a unique opportunity to progress your BSP Career. As a Senior Clinician, not only do you have your own small caseload, providing both assessments and therapeutic interventions to a variety of people of varying ages and abilities, you will also assist in the clinical support of graduate and junior clinicians across a range of areas. In collaboration with your supportive multidisciplinary team, you will be working with clients and their families and caregivers, many of whom have NDIS funding, both in the community setting and in our clinic spaces.

At SKMV, no two days are the same, though a typical week as a Senior BSP may involve:

  • Working with clients with a range of presenting needs including complex care, intellectual disabilities, communication difficulties, mental health and behaviours of concern
  • Providing high quality specialist care to clients in order to optimise and improve their health outcomes and psychological wellbeing
  • Undertaking comprehensive functional behaviour assessments
  • Assisting people in the understanding and adjustments of attitudes, expectations and behaviour
  • Developing individualised, client-centred behaviour support plan recommendations, and working within a multidisciplinary team to implement such recommendations
  • Reviewing comprehensive behaviour support plans
  • Training and supporting colleagues, providers and families to implement behaviour support plans and related strategies
  • Promoting provider, family and other caregiver involvement through individual and group caregiver and provider training
  • Understanding of restrictive practices and the role of the Quality and Safeguards Commission
  • Providing consultation and supervision to core PBS practitioners working with participants with complex needs
  • Ensuring SKMV's services maintain best practice and develop the tools to provide positive outcomes for participants
  • Demonstrate the ability to maintain clinical standards of recordkeeping and reviewing of clinical work
