Vetro Recruitment are currently seeking Support Workers to work on a full time temporary contract for one of the UK’s leading support services for adults with Autism. There are currently vacancies across six houses, offering 37.5 hours per week, as well as a requirement for temporary staff to work on an ad-hoc basis. They can offer both full time hours and flexible shifts for agency Support Workers.
  • Location: Highbridge and Burnham on Sea
  • Opportunities available: Full time hours along with flexible shifts
  • Pay: £9.50 - £10.65 per hour
As a Support Worker, you will support the individuals in day-to-day life but also in visits and activities out in the community. The service also organises regular excursions to the larger towns of Taunton and Weston-Super-Mare to encourage independence and interaction with the local community. The services allow adults with Autism to enjoy the independence of their own room and use of the communal house for meals and activities including music and art projects along with the opportunity to do activities such as woodwork, gardening and arts and crafts.

Adults within the service often have difficulties with communication and in some cases are non-verbal. Some may also have mobility issues or physical impairments, so experience in a similar setting would be preferred but not mandatory, and there may be some levels of personal care involved.

Requirements:
  • A passion for supporting vulnerable adults
  • 6 months paid experience as a Support Worker in a similar setting
  • A valid enhanced DBS on the update service (if you do not have this, Vetro can help facilitate this for you)
Benefits:
  • Work with the “Recruitment Agency of the Year 2018” (Regional Awards)
  • Free online training
  • Weekly pay
  • £50 to £250 Love2Shop referral scheme
  • Employee of the month scheme
  • CV writing support and career advice
  • Quick registration (including online Enhanced DBS check)
  • 24/7 support from our dedicated team of recruitment consultants
  • Referral Scheme
