Job description

Talkback is a charity and is known as one of Bucks and West Berks leading providers to people with needs.

Are you a person with a passion to help people? If so, would you like to work alongside like-minded, committed colleagues who enable people with a learning disability to increase their self-esteem, have more say, and control over their lives? Talkback has been working with people with a learning disability since 1998, aiming to achieve choice, opportunity and respect. Talkback is user led and knows what life is like when you have a learning disability.

We are currently recruiting for:

Learning Disability Project Workers - £18000 - £19200 p.a. (pro rata for part time roles)

Both full and part time roles available (minimum of 3 days/week)

No shift work or evening/weekend work

Within Talkback, the Nclude Me project was established 8 years ago and provides support and life skills training to people with a learning disability and/or autism, enabling them to speak out and make their own choices. The Project is expanding and we have a Learning Disability Project Worker vacancy to deliver a range of services to promote and encourage independent living and lifelong learning. Current projects include gardening and allotment groups, social and life skills training, men’s and women’s groups, a drama group which puts on regular shows, an upcycling and woodwork project and a creative arts group.

You will work across Buckinghamshire at both our High Wycombe and Aylesbury buildings, plus out in the community. You will work alongside people with a learning disability to meet their individual needs to achieve positive outcomes.

To succeed you will be able to work both as part of a team and independently and have a 'can do' attitude. As part of the role as an Nclude Me Learning Disability Project Worker, you will deliver a range of services for people with a learning disability. You will need to have good communication skills and an understanding of both self-advocacy and inclusion. We can teach you all you need to know, you just need to have the passion and care.

You will have the opportunity to help someone develop and grow as a person whilst making a difference that will live with you forever. And, as one of our team said ‘Working with people with a learning disability is the most rewarding and fulfilling role’

Closing date:     Thursday 12th December

Interview dates: November and December
