Birchwood (WA3)

up to 20 hours per week

£18,322 per annum pro rata (based on 39 hours per week)

This is more than a job; it’s a career that supports people to live life to the full.

We are looking for resilient and friendly Support Workers to join a team that works in partnership with people who use our services, to enable them to live as independently as possible and to be part of their local community. As a Support Worker you will encourage the health and well-being of the people that you support, through enabling them to be involved in a range of activities chosen by the person supported.

At Autism Initiatives we work alongside people with autism, providing specialist services tailored to each individual. Experience is not essential, but a genuine passion for providing person centred support as well as a positive attitude, is key to being successful in this role.

Staff are required to work shifts on a rota basis, including evenings, weekends and may also be required to complete sleep ins.

Support hours can be discussed at interview or via contacting our recruitment team - recruitment@autisminitiatives.org

In return, we will provide you with ongoing training and development, including supporting you to obtain your Diploma Level 2 qualification in Adult Care. This is a truly rewarding role, with the opportunity for you to develop your skills and knowledge and fulfil your career aspirations. Given the nature of this role, successful applicants will be subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure, the cost of which will be met by Autism Initiatives.

Please complete an application form and return this to ourselves to register your interest in a position.

Autism Initiatives is committed to working in partnership with people who use our services, their families, commissioners and others to provide a specialist, autism specific, person centred and outcome focused service for people with autism spectrum conditions.

All staff are expected to:

• Work in the context of Autism Initiatives’ Vision, Mission and Philosophy and to use our ‘Five Point Star’ approach in order to support people who uses our services in achieving their goals.

• Work to develop their abilities in line with the Autism Initiatives Competency Framework.

• Recognise the positive abilities of the people who use our services and support our shared belief in life-long learning.

• Adhere to the Autism Initiatives’ Code of Conduct and the General Social Care Council’s Code of Practice, showing a high degree of professionalism, resilience, and a willingness to remain committed during particularly demanding times.
