Residential Support Worker
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 support worker at The National Autistic Society you’ll help make Everyday Breakthroughs happen more often.
We are looking for support workers in Sybil Elgar House in Ealing. You’ll be working with autistic children in a residential support environment.
Sybil Elgar House - Children’s Home cares for autistic children and young adults aged 12-19. Each young person we have the privilege to work with has their own personalities and enjoys different activities. Their accomplishments range from cooking to playing sports and making music and are assisted with being able to fulfill day to day activities within a domestic setting.
Being a support worker takes bravery, patience, and commitment. But working with autistic people gives so much more in return.
We need you to be resilient, supportive and sensitive towards the needs of autistic people.
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 in the lives of autistic people, we’d love to hear from you.
Your working pattern will be varied over a seven-day rota and could include waking nights and bank holidays.
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.
The National Autistic Society is here to transform lives, challenges perceptions and build a society that works for autistic people.
Successful applicants will be required to complete the relevant safeguarding checks. We are an equal opportunities employer.
