Vetro Recruitment are currently looking for Support Workers on both a permanent and temporary basis for one of the UK's leading support services for adults with Autism. There are currently full-time permanent vacancies across six houses, offering 37.5 hours a week, as well as a requirement for temporary staff to work on an agency basis. They can offer both full time hours and flexible shifts for agency Support Workers.

  • Location: Highbridge
  • Opportunities available: Flexible shifts available as well as 37.5 permanent and temporary contracts
  • Pay: £8.45 - £10.65 per hour

As a Support Worker, you will support the individuals in day-to-day life but also in visits to the local cinema, swimming pool, shops and the beach. 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. The day centre offers service users 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 or in a similar role is preferred but not essential
  • Full UK driving licence preferred due to remote location
  • Full training is provided via the client and the agency

  • Weekly pay
  • £50 to £250 Love2Shop referral scheme
  • Employee of the month scheme
  • CV writing support and career advice
