BSL Support Worker

Salary: £19,500 per annum plus benefits

Location:  Eastleigh, Hampshire

Full UK driving license is preferred but not essential.

 

Would you like to work at our brand-new home in Eastleigh, Hampshire? Are you BSL Level 1 or above trained Native British Sign Language User? Do you have experience working with adults with Autism? Are you willing to be part of a transition team to ensure they settle into their new home?

We are looking for experienced Support Workers, full time or part time, BSL trained to Level 1 or above, or have a willingness to learn BSL. Staff should also have experience of supporting someone with autism.

‘Hi, my name is Ben and I'm shortly going to be living in my own home in Eastleigh, Hampshire Eastleigh and will be supported by SeeAbility. I use BSL to communicate, and you will too!

I am looking for calm, positive, friendly and happy individuals to join my team of support workers.  You will need to support me to lead the life I want and to encourage me to gradually become more and more skilled and confident.

Whilst I need a quiet and happy environment in my home, I really enjoy walking and playing football so you will need to be able to walk fairly long distances.  I also like jigsaw puzzles and have a passion for antiques, so I would love it if you liked these things too. 

I am looking for people to join my team who have the same interests as me so they would need to be physically fit, 100% reliable and able to provide me with personal care support.  I have autism and sometimes my behaviour can be challenging although that should not stop me doing the things I love and leading an active life.

I will need your encouragement to learn life skills and gain independence but that’s something everyone needs at times; as long as you are patient, confident, able to see the value in small gains, will follow coaching from my behaviour support person and are willing to help when needed, we will get along just fine!’

    • Hello Im Harriet and i'm learning with my daughter Erika. We are learning BSL because my son has autism and is currently non verbal and we hope he will respond to signing.
    • Hi everyone, I'm hoping someone here can help me. I have written a play, a solo show, and there are a couple of sections in which I will be signing BSL. I completed a certifying basic BSL course, so I can sign, but these concepts are quite subtle and tricky (mainly about spirituality and religion, or certain specific actions such as 'stumbling'). I know some of them, found others online, but I still don't have all of them so I'm wondering whether anyone can send me in the right directi
    • Hi All, so I’ve had my hearing aid for approx. 1 year, started learning sign language a couple of weeks ago and seem to be getting on ok with the basics, I’m a gymnastics coach, personal trainer, I have a day job and I’m adult inclusive ice skater and I have two children who are also learning sign language with me so we can communicate if my hearing completely goes. 
    • Hi all, I thought I would answer the 'why?' question which I thought would be easier than it is! It made me think for sure! Learning BSL has for a long time been something I wanted to do and should have done a long time ago. As a youngster I spent time abroad and the friends I made at school didn't speak English and due to us being kids we just worked round it and communicated in our own version of gestures/signs. Over the months (I was the only English speaking kid there) we developed a pr
