We are seeking creative and friendly Support Worker’s to join our Community Resource Centre in Blackpool. You will work in partnership with people who use our services, to enable them to live as independently as possible and be part of their local community. As a Resource Centre Support Worker you will encourage the health and well-being of the people that you support, through enabling them to be involved in a range of activities.
We are looking for people who can bring their passion and enthusiasm to the role in order to achieve positive outcomes for the people that we support. The range of activities can reflect the skills, knowledge and experience of the post holder, but will also need to meet the wishes of the people we support.
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 people with autism, 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 Diploma Level 2 qualification. Given the nature of this role, successful applicants will be subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure, the cost of which will be met by Autism Initiatives. Applicants must hold a valid UK driving license.
This is truly a rewarding role, with the opportunity for you to develop your skills, knowledge and fulfil your career aspirations.
*Due to the needs of the service, a full driving licence is required.
The closing date for completed applications is Friday 4th February 2022
Interviews are scheduled to be held Friday 11th February 2022
