ABOUT THE ROLE
We are currently looking to recruit a Land Based Activity Support to work within Adult Day services based at our New Warlands Farm Site – Edmondsley, Consett.
The post holder will be responsible for the day to day running of the Orchard Project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. You will help to develop, co-ordinate and deliver land based activities, events, information and resources to engage service users, schools and the public in both local and natural heritage and the work of the Society.
To succeed in this role, you should have an interest in the environment and conservation, be hands on, with experience of working on the land, and also have a keen interest in the local community and its history. Key skills to this role are excellent time management and communication skills, as you’ll collaborate with a range of audiences to deliver results. You will be adaptive, flexible and ready to embrace change and innovation.

Delivery of land based activities
Orchard maintenance and plant husbandry
This exciting opportunity is to support the delivery of positive activities and learning opportunities for children, young people and 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 young people and 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
