Centre 404 is a friendly, local and thriving charity with an excellent reputation for providing high quality support and services to people with learning disabilities and their families in North London.
We have exciting opportunities to work in a recently opened positive behaviour support project for a young man with autism, mild learning disabilities and complex behaviours, who has moved to his own home for the first time in Barnet, North London.
We are looking for calm and compassionate people to promote and maintain the health and wellbeing of the young man we support; to empower him to make choices and help him build and maintain relationships with his family and friends. You will help him to develop interests and attend exciting activities and assist with everyday living – including his personal care and health needs – whilst actively encouraging his independence.
The right candidates will have a high attention to detail to be able to provide consistent support, maintain and follow guidelines and risk assessments closely in order to ensure the safety of the young man and the public. An understanding of autism and positive behaviour support would be advantageous. The role requires a proactive approach with the ability to think on your feet and maintain warm and positive communication to nurture a calm environment. Ideal candidates will also enjoy taking part in a range of sports and outdoor activities, as they will be regularly supporting the young man with these.
So if you are positive, flexible, have good communication, and a willingness to learn and develop new skills, this role may be just right for you! We welcome Greek speaking applicants as the person we support speaks both Greek and English, however, this is not a necessity of the role.
A full clean EU driving licence is essential for this role.
Centre 404 is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of adults at risk and we are looking to recruit people who share these values. All our offers of employment are therefore subject to an enhanced DBS check, proof of eligibility to work in the UK and two satisfactory references.
How to apply: Please submit a copy of your CV along with an application form. We would also appreciate if you could complete a diversity monitoring form, which you will receive to the email specified in your CV.
Please refer to the Job Description & Matching Criteria prior to completing your application.
Closing date: 22nd February 2019, although applications will be considered for shortlisting on a rolling basis, and the closing date will be brought forward if a successful candidate is found prior to 22nd February.
This role will include a second interview with the service user to ensure Support Workers are suitably matched.
