A man with Asperger’s Syndrome is looking to recruit an experienced Support Worker who is Autism informed and has experience of working with Asperger’s Syndrome. He finds communication challenging and at times may not speak. However he is also often articulate and regularly described as delightful and very caring.
Initially the position is for 4 hours a week and the actual hours of work can be agreed after successful interview.
There may be potential for more hours in the future if the placement is successful.
