The Number 6 One Stop Shop provides free social opportunities and 1-1 advice and support on a range of issues to autistic adults living in the Lothians and Scottish Borders.
The OSS Coordinator will assist the Number 6 One Stop Shop Manager to develop and deliver a wide range of needs-led services by effective liaison with a range of external agencies, professionals, autistic adults, parents and carers. This will include responsibility for gathering information to assist with diagnostic assessments, running interest groups, staffing the drop-in and providing first appointments to those new to the service.
The OSS Coordinator will also play a role in delivering training to external services and Autism Initiatives staff.
We are looking for people with a broad understanding of autism and the particular issues faced by those recently diagnosed as autistic, with the ability to develop positive working relationships and deliver workshops and training. Many of our services are currently being delivered remotely, so you will also need to be able to deliver 1-1 and group support across a range of platforms, including Skype, Zoom and Teams.
If you think you have what we are looking for and are interested in joining our team, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
