About the job

Are you an experienced Support Worker with a passion for supporting individuals with complex needs and a good understand of positive behavior support (PBS) strategies? We are currently seeking experienced and passionate people who can implement and champion positive behaviour support at our supported living services.

What does the PBS Support Worker job involve?

Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) is about working in partnership with people, treating them with dignity and respect and understanding what behaviours tell us so that the person’s needs can be met in better ways.

What skills do I need?

Above all, we look for people who are friendly, patient, compassionate and honest. For this role, we need people with experience of supporting people with complex needs and implementing positive behaviour support.

Continuity and trust are very important in the work that we do, so reliability is key. The role is focused on building relationships, creating opportunities, and encouraging people to achieve their goals.
