We’re excited to announce that we’ll be launching a NEW service in Worksop very soon. We are looking for people to join our team as we create this special service. Our support is 24/7 and so we are looking for people to fill a variety of roles. Flexible working patterns are available including day, evening, and night cover, as well as casual weekend roles.
About the service
Whitegates will run year-round to provide autistic individuals with specialist support. It will provide the chance to relax away from home and enjoy a change of scene, whilst also offering their families and carers with a break.
Set in the heart of a quiet residential area, the impressive building has been carefully transformed to create six self-contained apartments within an enclosed spacious gardens. Support will also be provided for individuals who aspire to independent living but might otherwise be admitted to hospital. Through the support of Autism Practitioners and Senior Autism Practitioners (Support Workers) they are encouraged to maintain their independence and helping them plan their next step in life.
We’re looking for someone who is enthusiastic and positive and keen to make a difference. We don’t need you to know everything about how to support adults with autism as we provide a comprehensive induction training. You’ll also be supported by a skilled and knowledgeable management team.
We are recruiting both Autism Practitioners and Senior Autism Practitioners. For the senior role we would like to hear about your experience of working in health or social care and how you would use that experience to lead and develop others. For Autism Practitioners, we want to hear about your values and how you would put them in to practice.
What we offer:
- 25 days holiday plus bank holidays (33 days)
- Extensive induction with autism specialist training
- Fully paid for Care Certificate, which is essential for those wanting to pursue a career in health and social care
- Paid job related qualifications during employment
