Autumn Leaf is a new purpose-built development which will specialise in supporting individuals with Autism, Complex Needs & Challenging Behaviour. This is a chance to be part of a brand new team who will shape the service from the very beginning and make it a flagship service within the West Midlands.

As a Support Worker you will be a key member of our team, providing high standards of person-centred support and care to our service users. Through a creative and caring approach, you will build good relationships with both service users and their families, supporting service users in the planning of goals and in living as independently as possible. Both personal care and participation in activities are key tasks for the role, so energy and initiative is vital; experience however is not essential, providing you have a willingness to learn and the compassion and patience needed to support.

What we’d like from you:
  • Previous experience in a similar role
  • Full driving license
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Effective organisational capability
  • Great team player
  • Flexibility to respond to the changing needs of those who we support
  • Strong “can do” attitude
What we’d like to give you:
  • A competitive salary
  • Enhanced disclosure cost coverage
  • Comprehensive induction and commitment to ongoing training
  • Online benefits and cashback rewards
