This is more than a job; it’s a career that supports people to live life to the full.
We are looking for resilient and friendly Support Workers to join a team working alongside autistic people encouraging them to live as independently as possible and to be part of their local community. As a Support Worker you will promote positive health and well-being of the people that you support, enabling them to have a meaningful life and be involved in a range of activities.
At Autism Initiatives we provide specialist services tailored to each individual. Experience is not essential, but a genuine passion to making a difference to the lives of autistic people, as well as a positive attitude, is key to being successful in this role.
In return, we will provide you with ongoing training and development, including supporting you to obtain your SVQ Level 3 qualification, if required. Given the nature of this role, successful applicants must register with the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) scheme and Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) or equivalent regulatory body.
