Ollie is a bright, intelligent and sensitive chap who lives in his own home in Cambridge, supported by a small team. Ollie is 35 and loves music, books and keeping active. Ollie has autism and very well-controlled epilepsy.
This role is all about supporting Ollie to live a fulfilling life; to motivate and encourage him to engage in activities such as walking, cycling, and swimming. Ollie manages his behaviour well but he will have the occasional outbursts due to frustration. He is not normally physically aggressive to others, but can harm himself during outbursts. You will support Ollie by helping to maintain a calm and happy environment.
This job will suit a motivated, active and proactive support worker with experience of working with an adult with additional needs. You will be motivational, but not pushy, and understand the importance of interacting with Ollie in an age-appropriate way. Ollie does not eat junk food, so a confident cook who understands the benefit of a balanced and healthy diet is important. Ollie loves to work on his cognitive and speech and language skills, so a candidate with experience and interest in these areas would be advantageous. Consistency is important for Ollie so we are looking for someone who can make a long-term commitment.
This role offers a varied and interesting workday pattern and the opportunity to work with Ollie who is a real charmer. To apply for this position please send your CV to Rachael at Snap.
Please note, whilst Snap endeavour to reply to all applications, some of our positions are so popular this is not possible and only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
