About Orbis Education and Care
Orbis Education and Care offers specialist services for children, young people and adults with complex needs associated with autism and its associated conditions. We are a rapidly expanding, sector-leading organisation with services around South and Mid Wales including schools, residential services, adult homes and a work-skills day service.
We work with lots of young people to promote their learning, development and independence, whilst offering placements that are fun, engaging and meaningful. Childhood is an important time of our lives and we want to help make our children’s lives memorable as they develop into young people and adults, and as each individual is unique, the way we care and support them has to be the same.
About Summergil House
Summergil House is a specialist school and residential care service for children and young people with complex needs. It is located among 18 acres of field and woodland in Presteigne on the Herefordshire-Powys border.
About the role
The children we support typically have complex sensory and communication needs, a learning disability, challenging behaviour and a need for personal care support.
Our support workers have to be committed to the provision of high quality person-centred support to empower our children and young people. A creative approach to care can often be required, but one that always recognises and promotes choice, dignity, privacy and respect. You will be working as part of a team in which everyone pulls together to ensure the safety of each child. You will need good verbal and written communication skills to be able to communicate effectively with a range of people including the children, but also their families and carers, as well as your colleagues. Producing accurate records and reports is also part of the day-to-day role and you will be required to work flexibly across shift patterns according to the needs of the service.
For this you can expect to receive a competitive salary and range of benefits.
