Help make an Everyday Breakthrough happen by joining our team.
A breakthrough can seem like the smallest thing, but it can make the world of difference to someone on the autism spectrum. By becoming a bank support worker at the National Autistic Society you’ll help make Everyday Breakthroughs happen more often.
We are looking for energetic, motivated and enthusiastic bank support workers in the Whalley, near Clitheroe area to be part of a network of experienced colleagues working with autistic adults and their families in a community support environment.
You may be working with autistic adults in a working café that is open to the public.
Café Autisan supports autistic people to gain real work experiences and provides opportunities to work towards recognised qualifications. The environment has been designed to facilitate increased social interaction and improved communication.
Or you may be supporting adults with autism by promoting independence, developing life skills and engaging in activities both in the National Autistic Society Centre - Lancashire and out in the community.
Being a bank support worker takes bravery, patience and commitment. But working with autistic people gives so much more in return.
We need you to be resilient, caring and sensitive towards the needs of autistic people.
Driver desirable but not essential.
Along with a host of benefits – from shopping discounts to flexible working and a competitive pension scheme - we’ll make sure you get excellent autism-specific training to further your career in social care.
You may have a personal connection, a desire to work with or real life experiences working with autistic people. You might not have lots of experience yet, but if you share our values and are willing to make a difference to the lives of autistic people, we’d love to hear from you.
Your working pattern could include mornings, afternoons, evenings, weekends and Bank Holidays. The shifts are across all 7 days of the week, 365 days of the year.
These are offered on an ad hoc basis.
Assessment Day/Interviews will be held: TBC
