Job description

What would you prefer:

- 5 shorter days working and 2 days off OR 3 longer days and 4 days off?!

I know what I’d choose:

- 3 longer days with 4 whole days off to do what I please!

 

I’ve got an amazing opportunity where you could either start your career or develop your skills as a support worker in the Kenton & Walker area in Newcastle upon Tyne. We don’t just employ our staff by their experience, (although it helps) your personality is worth more than gold to our residents.

 

Lets talk residents:

We have a wonderful bunch of residents who all have different dislikes and likes. The one thing that ties them all together is- Autism. Autism is a bright spectrum which presents itself on every single person differently.

Age range is between 19-60 and all have different hobbies of their own which you would accompany them to do. Activities such as swimming, rock climbing, hiking, pub lunches and coffee morning at costa will become the normal routine as providing independence is vital.

 

You need:
  • Compassion, patience and to be understanding

  • Have previously worked with Autism is desired but not essential

  • Experience working with challenging behaviour is desired but not essential

  • A passion for working with Autism is a must

  • Good English language and written skills

 

Why us?
  • We offer a sleep-in rates of £66 a night (maximum 2 a week)

  • Full comprehensive training which includes challenging behaviour and safeguarding face to face

  • 1:1 care doesn’t start until full induction is complete

  • Overtime rates available

Such a great opportunity available for those with experience and without! Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
