Closing date 01/05/2018
Description
Join Brandon Trust as a support worker in our Children and Family Services and discover a rewarding role enabling young people with learning disabilities and autism to thrive and live their lives with fewer limitations. We have various full and part-time roles of between 10 hours and 37.5 hours per week in the North Somerset area; we’re happy to discuss hours and availability with you. You’ll support children either on a one-to-one or two-to-one basis, both at home in the family setting and in the community.

Requirements
The children and young people we support are between the age of 5 and 25. They have different learning disabilities, a diverse range of needs, whilst some individuals have more complex needs. You’ll support a number of children at different times; adapting your approach to their individual needs and goals. In one day you might support one child or young person for a few hours and then another individual and their family in a different location. Supporting individuals to develop their independence, you might provide support before or after school, for example to take someone for a sports lesson, or you could be supporting parents during the school holidays. You’ll work closely with families and specialists, building up strong relationships and collaborating to work out the right combination of health, social and educational support for each child. The role involves some day-time working hours as well as early evenings and weekends. There is also an opportunity if you would like to join our Bank staff to work within our inclusion play schemes in the summer holidays. There are four different venues in the South Gloucestershire area. We also run a buddy scheme where you can support a young person 1:1 to access a mainstream club, for example Scouts. About you You’re compassionate, you love working with people and are able to build relationships based on trust, respect and consideration. Patient and understanding of people’s varied needs you’re able to adapt your pace. A confident problem solver and creative thinker with good communication skills, you overcome challenges with positivity, commitment and enthusiasm. If you’ve experience of working with children, that’s even better, but it’s not essential. You’ll need to be flexible around shifts and weekend work and it’s essential you have a full driving licence, and are able and willing to use your own vehicle on business (mileage expenses will be paid).

The service supports many young people; some use the service for a few hours a day, others stay for several days, depending on their family’s needs. It’s crucial the right support is in place at the right time for everyone. The individuals have a wide range of learning disabilities, some have complex health needs and some can display behaviour that challenges. The service supports between one and four individuals at any one time. Each day will be different depending on who you’re supporting, and you’ll adapt your approach accordingly. You’ll work closely with families and specialists, building up strong relationships and collaborating to work out the right combination of health, social and educational support for each child. You’ll join the team in supporting individuals during the evenings and through the night. You'll respond to the individuals needs as they arise and regularly check door monitors.
