Specialist Complex Needs Worker

  • Applicants need to be resilient and able to stay calm and focused during difficult and demanding situations.
  • The individuals we support in this group use complex and challenging behaviour as communication. They will try to hit, kick, bite, scratch and otherwise physically harm you and others. This is not ‘ordinary’ support work: it is more psychologically and physically intense. This role requires someone who fully understands how and why this type of work is demanding and different, and who has the skills and commitment to work in a professional team focused on understanding and reducing complex and challenging behaviour. Specialist training is essential and will be provided.
