Are you looking for a rewarding and challenging role?

It's not easy, and it's not for everyone. But as a support worker, the rewards can be so much bigger than the challenges. You really will make a positive difference to people’s lives.

You’ll be joining our team, both locally and nationally and we’ll support you every step of the way.

Many of those who join us have no previous knowledge of autism or support work. Our fantastic induction programme and learning and development opportunities help all of our staff become autism experts.

We are looking for Bank support workers in our residential service in Leicester. We support 10 adults across 2 homes to be as independent as possible in their everyday lives, both at home and in the community. They all have very different needs, interests, goals and levels of support. Being a support worker takes bravery, patience and commitment. But working with autistic people gives so much more in return.support. 

We need you to be resilient, supportive and sensitive towards the needs of autistic people and ideally have a background in supporting people with Autism in previous roles within a social care environment. The desirable level of education for this role is set at QCF Level 2 or equivalent, within Health and Social Care or Education.

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. Ideally you’ll have experience in a support worker role, the desire to progress your career, and 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 may be varied over a seven day rota and could include sleep-ins and bank holidays.

If you have any specific questions about the role, get in touch with Andrea.Russell@nas.org.uk
