The Autism Service is a well-established and successful service for adults with high functioning autism.

There has been an increase in the number of people with autism identified in primary care services and an even bigger number of adults not identified and not receiving any kind of support.

Barnet Mencap is looking for a full-time Autism Advisor as maternity cover.  The Autism Advisor works to ensure that people are offered screening, advice, information and other appropriate support as early as possible, and to identify the best way to do this in the long-term.

The Autism Service is currently funded until the end of March 2021 and is based with the Working for You team but working closely with the Wellbeing Hub and GP Link Working Team.

Applicants will need to deliver a 5-minute presentation on autism awareness specifically relating to those with High Functioning Autism.

To apply for this position, please send your CV and a supporting statement explaining how you meet the criteria in the Job Description. Alternatively, please head to the Barnet Mencap website for an application form.

Barnet Mencap is committed to equal opportunities and the safeguarding of children and adults at risk.  The successful candidate will be required to complete a Disclosure and Barring Service form in line with Section 115 of The Police Act 1997.
