About this Job -
We are recruiting a brand new team and are looking for genuinely caring and hands on individuals to join our team of Support Workers for our new site that opened in Summer 2018.
As a Support Worker at The Acorns day service and community outreach you will work with people who have autism, Asperger's syndrome and other varying degrees of learning disabilities. You will promote independence and support them to lead as fulfilling life as possible, incorporating both therapy based activities and social based activities. You will support people who wish to participate in home and living activities with the opportunity to practice their daily living skills in a supportive environment. You will also support people with activities such as sensory, art, craft, music, movement and drama, gym and community outings. As part of the role you will also support people in their own home, at work, in an educational setting or in the community meeting their wishes, interests and needs.
The individuals we support at this service enjoy a lot of community access, so confidence in lone working is essential. We are therefore looking for Support Workers with previous experience who can hit the ground running. However we will still provide a full training programme that is specific to the needs of the individuals we support.
You'll join the team working on a rota that includes early, late, weekend, night and Bank Holiday shifts. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a motivated and determined team. So make a great career move.
