We are currently recruiting Project Workers to work with Upmo. Join our dedicated team supporting adults with learning disabilities and autism to reach their individual goals and ambitions.

We have vacancies in our teams based at:

Upmo is a Living Wage Employer; the rate of pay for this role is £12.00 per hour.

As a Project Worker, you will be part of an enthusiastic and creative team who provide daily support to adults with learning disabilities and autism as they participate in workshops and activities within our site-based services.

For this role, we are particularly interested in hearing from individuals with skills and expertise in art, IT, music, drama, dance, photography, gardening, and outdoor activities. Or, if you have any other skills, let us know!

This role includes supporting students in workshops of their choosing, working one to one with students, and facilitating workshops, and supporting people with personal care, as and when required.

While previous experience in care or support is highly advantageous, it is not required as we provide full training and ongoing support to our staff team. An interest in visual arts, performing arts, cooking, IT, gardening, or sports would be beneficial.
