Job description

Our Vision is 'to enable everyone with a learning disability and autism to lead fulfilling lives and actively contribute to their local community.'

Within Talkback, the Personal Development & Skills programme (formerly Nclude) was established 8 years ago, and provides activity groups and life skills training to people with a learning disability and autism. Our Project Workers deliver a range of services to promote and encourage independent living and lifelong learning.

We are currently recruiting for:

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

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

Core projects include social and life skills training, sports and wellbeing, men’s and women’s groups, a drama group which puts on regular shows, an upcycling and woodwork project, gardening and allotment groups and a creative arts group.

In addition to our building based sessions staff are also expected to plan, run and deliver virtual sessions via platforms such as Zoom. This addition to our traditional service was developed during the Covid-19 lockdown and not only provides vital support for people unable to attend a building based services, but connects our current sites and enables a wider range of activities to be shared with our members.

As part of the role you will work across Buckinghamshire at both our High Wycombe and Aylesbury locations, 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 as part of a team and independently and have a 'can do' attitude. You will need to have good communication skills, as well a desire to help people with a learning disability learn new skills and build friendships. 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’
