About the role
Our Short Breaks service is set within our well-equipped North East Centre for Autism in the beautiful County Durham countryside near Newton Aycliffe. It offers personalised breaks to children and young people – everything from after-school care, weekend activities, holiday clubs and overnight stays to extended holidays.

Working independently and as part of a team, you’ll support children to access a range of fun and educational activities, both on site and out and about in the community. Whatever their passions, you’ll help them fulfil their potential and develop their independence.

About you
While we value experience, it is not essential to have previously worked in health and social care, or with autistic people. Our comprehensive induction, training and mentoring will give you all the skills and tools you need to thrive in your career.

All that we ask is that you are a good team player with a can-do attitude, drive and resilience for what can be a demanding role. You should be friendly and approachable with good communication skills, enabling you to build positive, trusting relationships with the children you support.

Our staff come from all walks of life, and bring their experiences, interests and skills – be that cooking, sports, the outdoors, art or crafts – with them to enrich children’s lives. If you’re seeking a rewarding job and want to make a genuine difference, this is the role for you.

About us
For more than 40 years, we’ve led the way in providing care and education for autistic and/or neurodivergent children, young people and adults across the North-east of England.

We have more than 1,200 staff working in our schools, college, short breaks, day services, residential care, supported living, employment services and family support. We are passionate about retaining talent and many of our current managers have worked their way up through the ranks.
