About the role  

We are looking for qualified Psychologists, Social Workers or Developmental Educators who believe in making a genuine and positive impact in the lives of children in the community. 

You will be a part of our Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) team partnering with families to assess their child's needs and make recommendations about the best plan and strategy going forward. This role would be right for someone who wants to put their previous therapy experience to use. This role will involve a mixture of both face-to-face assessments of children and office-based administrative tasks.

  • Assess and accurately report the functional impact of a child's developmental delay to assist in the preparation of applications for access to the NDIS scheme with regards to early intervention.
  • Assess and prioritise needs to clearly and concisely summarise relevant information to make recommendations to support NDIS plan approval.
  • Conduct first plan and review planning conversations with clients – over the phone and in person.
  • Liaise and work cooperatively with key stakeholders to successfully implement NDIS plans.
  • Demonstrate a consistent drive to making a positive difference empowering the lives of children, their families, carers and the wider community at large.

The successful applicant will have:  

  • Relevant qualifications in Psychology as well as eligibility for AHPRA registration or relevant qualifications in Social Work or Developmental Education
  • Experience working within Allied Health, NDIS and with children highly desirable
  • Experience supporting children and families using a key worker, family-centred and capacity building model by translating professional advice into practical strategies and routines for families.
