BSL Support Worker Vacancy


Recommended Posts

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!’

Who are SeeAbility?

SeeAbility encourages people with disabilities to challenge what they expect from life, from themselves and from wider society. The people we support overcome huge barriers to achieve exciting new things every day: some big, some small, all extraordinary. They challenge us all to rethink disability.

    • My grandson is mute and I always signed "non speaking". However someone told me the sign for mute is......holding a flat palm i facing inwards infront of mouth and pulling it slowly across mouth to the left side. Palm remainder open the whole time. Hope this helps.
    • I really liked reading your poem! It's a talent I lack myself haha, although my signing is not very distinct, it felt alright to read some content in sign to get my eyes used to reading face/hand movements! take care Sue!
    • That's great to hear Helen, welcome to the sign language forum! I hope we can help you develop your sign language skills!   
    • Hey thepolyglotlion! I don't know of any sort of sign that indicates said person is mute, you could do "Me not speak" or such other things, I couldn't find any dictionary search for "Mute". If there's a word you don't know the sign for, always finger-spell it so whoever you're signing with catches what you're trying so say. Hope I could help  
    • Hi Juliana......It starts off    Hello BSL friends. Hope you like my poem. Lockdown soon be over, Everyone sing and dance. Meeting friends and family, Celebrations in the park.

Here time has passed ...Horray!!!   Sadly since this poem was written we are still not out off the woods!!!!:) x Hope this helps
    • Hello, I started learning sign language when I had Covid because it is something I have always wanted to learn. I thought it would be and amazing skill to have as I am a student nurse and would love to be able to communicate better with my patients with hearing difficulties. I am very excited to be able to have a conversation with something in BSL.
    • Hi, I have started learning BSL as the mum of one of my sons friends is deaf. They have just stared in reception and the mum and one of her friends goes in to the class once a week to teach the children some BSL. I felt awful I could not communicate anything more than Hello when at school so have signed up to learn. Really enjoying it.
    • I’m a beginner and found it I could understand quite a bit of your poem . It helped to hear it too so I could check if I got it right ! Thanks 🙏
