  • Full time
  • £23,700

  • Advertised from 20th November 2019

The National Autistic Society is the UK’s leading charity for autistic people. Since 1962, we’ve been transforming lives, changing attitudes and helping to create a society that works for autistic adults and children.

We transform lives by providing support, guidance and practical advice for the 700,000 autistic adults and children in the UK, as well as their three million family members and carers. Autistic people turn to us at key moments or challenging times in their lives, be it getting a diagnosis, going to school or finding work.

We change attitudes by improving public understanding of autism and the difficulties many autistic people face. We also work closely with businesses, local authorities and government to help them provide more autism-friendly spaces, deliver better services and improve laws.

We have come a long way but it is not good enough. There is still so much to do to increase opportunities, reduce social isolation and build a brighter future for people on the spectrum. With your help, we can make it happen.

What we can offer you:

  • Pension scheme
  • 25 days annual leave
  • Excellent induction, training and development programme including training about autism and opportunities to attend our conferences
  • Online staff discount scheme for a range of benefits (cycle to work scheme, season ticket loan)
  • Access to a 24-hour employee assistance programme
  • We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual to lead the development and delivery of the NAS’s Person to Person project. This is an exciting and innovative project which supports autistic adults over the age of 26 to meet new people, develop social and communication skills and build confidence through 1-2-1 mentoring and Coffee Clubs.

Passionate about developing opportunities for autistic adults, you will bring experience of volunteer recruitment and management as well as knowledge of monitoring and evaluation systems to the role. You will be based at NAS’s Glasgow Office with some travel across local authorities to meet volunteers, autistic adults and host Coffee Clubs.

We are committed to transforming individual lives and changing society’s attitudes. If this sounds like the role for you, we would love to hear from you.

This is a fixed term position until July 2022.
