Our organisation’s vision is a world where people with autism are able to live fulfilling lives, with equal chances to those of their neurotypical peers. For over 20 years, we have provided practical support to people on the spectrum and to those who love and care for them. From 1:1 support, to music/art therapy, from parent and sibling groups, to holiday play schemes, we aim to give those whom we support a better and happier life.

We are a professional organisation with a strong commitment to training, retention and staff progression. The services we provide our families are of a high standard and we hope to encourage and recruit candidates who will mirror these standards.

Our approach is holistic and person centred and we look to staff to use all the skills they have to ensure our service users maximise their potential and have the most fun they can.

We are looking for flexible, compassionate, enthusiastic support staff able to work alone and as part of a small team. Working with children, teenagers and adults across the spectrum, our specialism is those whose behaviour may challenge others. You will need to be up to that challenge! You must have some experience of autism and/or profound learning difficulty and/or behaviour that can be difficult. We expect our team to be non-judgemental and to work in partnership with parents and carers where appropriate.

We are looking for staff across London and the West Midlands. As front line staff during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have maintained our support to our families at a time when it has been crucial to do so. This has been both face to face and also virtually.

We pay for travel time between jobs and try to get jobs as near as possible to each other in any given day. We have good availability for work opportunities during the day and at the weekends.

There is a probation period which can last up to 6 months. Many staff, once they have passed their probation, go on to progress through the organisation. We have opportunities for development in various fields within Resources for Autism and we pay attention to the variety of skills our workforce brings to the charity.

Resources for Autism works within the government’s Coivd-19 guidelines

We are an organisation committed to equality, value diversity and work inclusively and this is reflected in the recruitment process.
