Work Life Integration

Work Life Integration is a self-management style where instead of being directed that things must be completed with specific hours - you are trusted to balance your needs and the needs of the position.  


You might be someone that enjoys teaching a Yoga class in the morning - at 9 am and why shouldnt you?  Instead of missing that aspect of your life to meet an arbitrary 'working day' develop a plan that allows you to work at the best time for you.


With all the opportunities that the Central West of New South Wales offers being able to be flexible allows you to enjoy the most of what the region has to offer to create a lifestyle that is driven by your choices.

Working full time is only supposed to occupy 42% of your waking hours but when you love your work and you get to choose how to do it - it means that instead of a daily grind you actually have a life.

​About the role

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a Senior Clinician and Behaviour Support Practitioners who have extensive experience assisting people and their support networks meeting behavioural needs.  The position would be supporting young people, aged people and people with a disability.  This person (we hope its you!) has the drive to work with complex clients and develop genuine rapport to help change lives.


This position is not discipline specific as challenging behaviour work is a discipline in its own right.


This senior clinician (we hope it is you!) has the drive to be autonomous in their work but engage with a team in order to meet their own needs as well as clients.  This can mean providing and receiving peer supervision or just working well alongside a professional admin team.


Ultimately, for the senior role - we are looking for someone who is an expert in their field of work and wants to continue to refine their mastery of the craft - as well as have a stimulating and engaging relationship with colleagues.

For the Behaviour Support Practitioner role, we are looking for someone with experience supporting people with complex and challenging behaviours to increase their quality of life and meet their goals and aspirations.

​Great Location

With offices in great locations in the Central West of New South Wales and more planned to be open, this role opens the door to a different lifestyle.  Personally, I love it!  Instead of a commute - from my front doorstep to the office is a 7-minute drive with minimal traffic.  Regional centers offer all the benefits of a metro area without all the hassles.
