At Scottish Autism we acknowledge the specialist support our staff provide to autistic individuals, therefore those doing support work are known as Autism Practitioners. We provide outstanding training and are continuously improving to ensure all our Autism Practitioners are supported and have the skills to deliver a quality service. This post is a good opportunity for those with a generic support worker experience to specialise.  


An exciting opportunity has arisen for enthusiastic and committed Autism Practitioners to be part of the team within Central Area services.


I really enjoy coming to work and love working with the individuals I support Staff member, Central Area Services

Our Services:

Day opportunities - Supporting individuals with Autism to gain new skills and interests in a safe and thriving environment.

Housing Support -To support individuals with Autism to maintain their own tenancy and to provide care at home as required.

Adult Residential - To provide a home to individuals with Autism within a group setting while promoting life skills.


Scottish Autism’s Values are:


·      Collaboration – we work with others and value their opinions

·      Compassion – we work with each other and our service users with care and kindness

·      Change Makers – we never stand still, we move positively forward always focussed on quality and being the best

·      Contribution – we love what we do, we never lose sight of our purpose and the difference we make in society


It is not necessary to have experience of working within social care as we are seeking to appoint Autism Practitioners who share our values and are willing to learn and develop into the role.


Scottish Autism are good employers. We really focus on individualised support plans that have the individual’s best interests at heart” Staff member, Central Area Services

On a day to day basis, Autism Practitioners enable autistic people to complete all activities of daily living, which includes personal care and household chores.
