As an Outreach Support Worker you will play an integral part in supporting autistic individuals to achieve both their identified goals and aspirations.

• A driver with access to your own transport. A company vehicle could be provided should the needs of a particular individual you are supporting require it. Mileage allowance and travel time will be paid from and returning to your home address.

In exchange we will offer you:

• 25 days annual leave entitlement plus Bank Holidays
• Company Pension Scheme (Royal London)
