We are seeking a Part-time staff member who shares our values and has the experience and skills to support adults with learning disabilities on a one-to-one and group basis to participate in meaningful work within our day service.

The post is in our pottery workshop where we make a wide range of different ceramics. The role focusing on working as part of a team support people with complex additional needs to engage meaningfully in the workshop.

Previous experience of working with adults with learning disabilities is essential, as is a good understanding of autism, the needs of people who use different forms of communication and a confidence in working positively with people with behaviours that challenges.

Experience in pottery would be highly desirable, but most important would be the ability to demonstrate an interest in creativity and a real desire to learn and develop pottery skills, as well as being fully involved in the range of other jobs that ensure the smooth and safe running of the workshop.
