We are looking for someone who will bring great energy, creativity, and innovative ideas to supporting individuals and getting the most out of this exciting project. Somebody who is keen to promote Assistive Living Technology would be an advantage.

In this role, you will be supporting a young gentleman living in his own home in the Pool area. You will need to have an enabling and encouraging approach to support, an added interest in trucks and trains would be a bonus.

This role is a cover hours position, meaning your hours will be found for you on a month-to-month basis across both the Pool and Redruth Services covering both day and waking night shifts. For this reason, you will need to be able to work flexibly. This will be 20 hours per week, but this could be increased for the right candidate.

Preferably you will have experience supporting individuals with autism and/or learning disabilities and be able to work in a way that is truly person-centred - aiming to make a real difference to the individual’s lives by promoting independence and enhancing their perception of quality of life.
