Working and supporting people with Autism is both challenging but extremely rewarding. Seeing their independence grow and need for support decrease shows that you are enriching and improving their lives.
If this is something that you think drives you then get in touch with us now as we are working with a leading provider of a range of services to adults with autism and have roles across south London for new staff to join their growing team.
Working on a temp to perm basis you will be assisting adults in a supported living environment with all aspects of their daily life and helping them to get full value from everything they do.
We have opportunities for Support Workers and Senior Support workers - either working days or waking nights on a rota basis (including weekends)
Hours are between 7am - 10pm (either early or lates) or 10pm - 7am (waking nights) and you need to be available for any hours in either days or nights (dependent on role applied for)
You will have been a support worker rather than care assistant or carer and be passionate about improving and assisting in helping your service users become as independent as possible.
You don't need to have worked specifically with Adults with Autism but will need to have an understanding of the needs of this service group.
As this role is temporary to begin with, you will need to go through our compliance process which includes full ID and right to work checks, minimum of the last 2 years of satisfactory referencing and must have a DBS with the update service or willing to apply for one with us (£50 cost).
Interested? Then please contact me now to discuss the role and next steps, or call 0208 680 8183 - please mention you are interested in the Autism support worker roles
We also work across a number of other areas including learning disabilities, mental health, supported living, challenging behaviours, family care support workers, homelessness support workers, youth workers, misuse of drug and alcohol, housing associations, domestic violence, and managerial roles. So if any of these are more within your remit then let me know.
