A temporary to permanent opportunity for an Autism Key Worker

Your new company

You will be working with a small provider of individualised care for young people aged 10 and upwards with autistic spectrum conditions, including Asperger Syndrome/Higher Functioning Autism. They offer the highest standards of care and have outstanding opportunities for training, development, and progression.

Your new role

You will be required to work with autistic individuals referred to the service and develop personal plans. You will provide personal 1-2-1 support, helping them to develop their independence and also plan activities (and subsequent risk assessments) based on their choices. The successful applicant will carry out referrals to determine suitability for the service and will be required to drive a company vehicle to transport young people and staff to and from activities.

What you'll need to succeed

It is essential that you will have an NVQ Level 3 in Children and Young Peoples Workforce and a full UK driving licence. You will have an excellent knowledge of autism, how it affects an individual and good practice methods. You will have experience providing care and support to adults and children with support needs and be able to engage with social and communication difficulties.

What you'll get in return

This organisation is looking to expand and although this position is initially on a temporary basis, the likelihood is that you will be invited to apply for a full time role providing that you meet the high levels of service that Hays strive for.
