Work For Talkback

Role of the month

Learning Disability Project Worker

Do you have a passion for making a difference to someone’s life? Do you have patience and a good sense of fun? Do you wonder if you could help people with learning disabilities learn life skills and practical areas so they can live independently?

Our Vision is ‘To help everyone with a learning disability or autism embrace new opportunities, lead the fulfilling lives they want and actively contribute to their local community.’Our Project Workers play a vital part of that vision and are responsible for planning and delivering creative, fun, and engaging sessions that enable people to progress and develop their independence.

Core projects include, social & life skills training, sports & wellbeing, men’s & women’s groups, a drama group which puts on regular shows, an upcycling & woodwork enterprise, gardening and allotment groups, work experience and a creative arts group.

We embrace staff from different working backgrounds who can use their experience and talents to benefit the lives of people with a learning disability or autism. If you have the passion and desire, we can provide the training and support.

As part of the role, you will work across Buckinghamshire at both our High Wycombe and Aylesbury locations, plus out in the community. You will work alongside people with a learning disability, aged 23 years and older, to meet their individual needs to achieve positive outcomes.

To succeed you will be able to work as part of a team and independently and have a ‘can do’ attitude. You will need to have good communication skills, as well a desire to help people with a learning disability learn new skills, access employment opportunities and build friendships.

You will have the opportunity to help someone develop and grow as a person whilst making a difference that will live with you forever. And, as one of our team said ‘Working with people with a learning disability is the most rewarding and fulfilling role’

If you want to make a lasting difference to people we want to talk to you.
