Do you want to empower people with learning disabilities and autism by helping them improve their employment opportunities? We need a facilitator for two days a week to run a programme helping people take their first steps towards getting paid or volunteer work.

Share is a registered charity and a centre for training and wellbeing. We provide a range of programmes helping adults with learning disabilities, autism and other support needs live more independently. Our vision is a world where disabled people are fully included in society, living the life they choose, and we need talented people to help us make that happen.

Main responsibilities

  • You’ll plan, develop, and deliver sessions for our Steps into Employment course, working with each participant to understand their needs and help them thrive
  • You’ll use technology to help people move closer to their employment goals and improve their confidence, work ethic, and functional skills
  • You’ll work closely with our students to refer those who are work-ready to our job coach or external partner to provide further employment guidance

Who we’re looking for

  • You’ve worked in a social care or training environment, helping adults with learning disabilities and autism, so you understand the challenges they face and the different types of support they may need
  • You’re a creative thinker, able to be resourceful and create engaging, interactive and relevant course material
  • You have first-rate communication skills and you easily relate to people from all backgrounds
  • You take a person-centred approach and you know how to inspire people and help them grow their self-esteem and confidence
  • Most importantly, you’re committed to the inclusion of disabled people in all aspects of life, especially employment
