You will understand the importance of reflective practice and be involved in debriefs and incident analysis to ensure the best possible outcomes for the individual.

Whilst no two days are the same typically, you’ll help the people we support with everyday challenges such as personal care, meal preparation, housekeeping, medication, attending health appointments, maintaining relationships and taking part in hobbies & activities. Crucially, enabling them to carry out tasks, chores and hobbies that most people take for granted but are meaningful to the people we support.

Due to the needs of the individual you will be supporting you will have previous experience with autism and/or challenging behaviour is required.

We have 1 30hr waking night position available for a MALE working 21:15-7:15, 3 nights per week inclusive of bank holidays and weekends.

We have 1 30hr day position available for a FEMALE working shifts between the hours of 7:00 and 21:30 inclusive of bank holidays and weekends. 

Although this role is predominantly based in Low Moor, it will also involve training, induction and occasional work at our registered service in Heaton so you must be happy to travel to both locations.
