We are currently looking to recruit a Care Support Assistant to work within Adult Supported Living service in Durham.
This exciting opportunity is to support the delivery of positive activities and learning opportunities for adults with autism, other examples of neurodiversity and / or associated behavioural challenges.
We appreciate that applicants may lack direct or personal experience with autism and neurodiversity, however, we have developed a detailed training and induction programme for successful candidates. This includes a comprehensive welcome to working at the North East Autism Society and an introduction to autism (theory, communication, sensory differences and behaviour).
If you have a passion for helping others, if you’re willing to learn more about autism and neurodiversity, and you know you are someone who can really make a difference – then this could be the rewarding career you’ve been looking for.
Working independently and as part of a team, you will support adults to access a range of activities. You will need to be enthusiastic, able to use your own initiative, have a drive and resilience for what is often a demanding role; and you must be people-centred with good communication and interpersonal skills, possessing a flexible approach to working routines.https://www.networxrecruitment.com/v?id=NORTHEASTA&t=Vacancies
