The Kent Autistic Trust is a very well-established autistic care provider supporting around 100 people throughout Medway and across Kent. Our primary aim is to ensure autistic adults have the best quality of life that they can have. People with autism are at the heart of all that we do.
Working with The Kent Autistic Trust offers a variety of different experiences every day, and the opportunity to make a difference to the people we support. Those we support participate in a wide range of activities such as shopping, cooking, going to the cinema, enjoying arts and crafts and, weather permitting, social get togethers such as barbecues.
We are now seeking to expand our workforce. You may already be a Specialist Support Worker with experience of supporting autistic adults on a 1:1 basis with complex needs, including physical and learning disabilities, but if you are not then we are equally keen to hear from Care and Support Workers without autism experience, as well as Night Support Workers.
The roles available are full time or part time permanent positions with the opportunity for progression. We provide comprehensive induction and pay for regulatory Social Care qualifications at level 2 and 3. On top of this our inhouse practice development team provide an excellent level of specialist PBS training, coaching and ongoing support to ensure your specialist knowledge is continually developed.
For most roles, holding a valid driving licence is desirable, as many of the people we support have their own vehicle and we also have our own fleet of people carriers.
We pride ourselves on having a great team spirit, our existing specialist staff are amazing and are really looking forward to welcoming some new colleagues.
If you are looking for a rewarding local role then we would love to hear from you.
Benefits of working for us:
· Be part of an outstanding support team
· Full paid for training and support towards Health and Social Care Qualifications
· Up to 28 days holiday, and accrual of extra days based on service
· Employee awards and recognition
· Buy and sell annual leave
· Death in service payment
· Employee Assistance helpline and support
· Paid for Enhanced DBS
