Ashberry Recruitment are looking to employ Support Workers to supplement their existing team supporting an autistic young man in the Preston area. This is ongoing temporary contract work until at least mid-September working with this young man on a 2:1 basis, who resides with his mother and sibling in the family home.
As Support Workers you will have experience of working with adults and/or young people presenting with autism, learning disabilities and mental health issues.
Ashberry are looking to identify male staff who will support and engage with this young man, encouraging him to get out in the community as well as providing the necessary emotional and psychological support to him and his family.
We are seeking caring, compassionate and resilient support workers who are experienced in dealing with challenging and volatile behaviours from service users. De-escalation and physical intervention training would be advantageous but this can be provided. Personal care is not a requirement for this post.
Shifts are 24 hours: 08:00-23:00 slp 07:00-08:15 to include weekends and bank holidays. The rota is arranged monthly and shifts will be assigned around the existing, well-established team.
This is a rare and excellent opportunity to really make a difference to this vulnerable young man’s life. Please get in touch…
