Are you looking for a job that you’ll love?

Do you want a rewarding role with real career opportunities?

Then look no further!

We have Support Worker opportunities for individuals to join our Scottish Borders Services based in Longnewton near St Boswells.

We are looking for resilient and friendly individuals to join our teams working alongside autistic people encouraging them to live as independently as possible. 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.

This is a truly rewarding role, with the opportunity for you to develop your skills and knowledge and fulfil your career aspirations.
