We are currently looking to recruit a number of Casuals to work within Family Support Activity services in Sunderland.
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.
In return we offer excellent terms and conditions. Joining our NEAS family will mean:
Working in a positive, friendly, rewarding environment, building your experience and career.
Dedicated support from our Learning and Development team who will work alongside you and your new line manager to enhance your career with our specialist training programmes. This is just the start of your new career!
Other benefits including childcare vouchers, bike to work scheme, pension contributions, an annual staff awards evening recognising and rewarding staff achievements, and much sought-after discounted rates at our family fun days and events scheduled across the year.
Having a hands-on role, valuing and supporting people.
