Senior Complex Needs Worker

Salary: £24,024 per annum
FT Contract: 35 hrs per week
Responsible to: Team Manager, Registered Manager, Chief Executive, Board of Trustees

This opportunity to join an award-winning team demands a cool head, excellent communication skills, proven experience of supporting people with challenging behaviour, resilience, leadership skills, and a strong commitment to teamwork.

Do you have the skills needed to be part of a small, specialist team, supporting adults with Autism and highly complex needs to access their local community?

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 attitude to fit into a professional team focused on understanding and reducing complex and challenging behaviour, as well as developing support plans and intervention strategies to support the work of the team..

Specialist training will be provided.

Full UK driving Licence essential.
