We are looking forBankSupport Workers to work in our residential services at Somerset Court in Brent Knoll.

Somerset Court is set in 26 acres of land and has six purpose-built houses, which enable autistic people we support to live ordinary day-to-day lives in small groups, with the help of our specialist staff. Everyone has their own bedroom and we encourage them to make their rooms their own by choosing the décor and accessories.

It is also home to our Autism Centre. There is plenty to do on site: everyone living here has access to all the workshops, learning and leisure facilities.

All of the support provided at the National Autistic Society is person centred, to enable those whom we support to live and gain independent living skills and access activities within the community. You’ll be working with autistic adults and their families.

Help transform lives by joining our team.

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.

We need you to be resilient, supportive and sensitive towards the needs of autistic people. Your working pattern will be varied over a seven-day rota, bank holidays and could include sleep-ins.

Being a support worker takes bravery, patience and commitment. But working with autistic people gives so much more in return.

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.

We offer:

  • £9.50 per hour incl. location allowance
  • Zero hours contract
  • Shift pattern over seven-day rota, incl. weekends and bank holidays. Days and nights available.
  • Excellent training and development programme
  • Access to a 24 hour Employee Assistance counselling programme
  • Online staff discount scheme for a range of benefits

You’ll be joining our team, both locally and nationally and we’ll support you every step of the way. We provide a fantastic one-year induction programme, regular one-to-ones, annual appraisals, continuing learning and development opportunities and the support you need to develop a career in social care.

To apply for the role, please click the button at the top of this page.

All shortlisted candidates will be asked to attend an interview online. Successful applicants will be required to complete the relevant safeguarding checks. We are an equal opportunities employer.

The National Autistic Society is here to transform lives, challenge perceptions and build a society that works for autistic people. Find out more about who we are and what we do on our website.
