We require a Male Day Service Support worker at Oak Farm to support a man in his mid-20’s. He is on the Autistic spectrum and at times is unpredictable and will present with behavioural difficulties. The successful applicant will be required to meet him at his home and travel to Oak Farm by taxi. He lives approximately 5 miles from Bridgnorth. He will also need to be accompanied at the end of the day by taxi to his home address.
There will be a need for the successful candidate to undertake Management of Actual and Potential Aggression (MAPA) training on commencement of this role. The training is mandatory as it is designed to keep the individual and support staff safe.
The service aims to enable adults with a learning disability to learn vocational skills in a work setting and experience new activities and be valued members of the local community.
Some experience of care work in a paid or voluntary capacity would be desirable but a positive attitude towards people with a disability is more important. Experience of working in an agricultural/horticultural setting would be useful but not essential. The successful applicant will work with another dedicated support worker in supporting this person.
