Job Details

A new exciting opportunity has arisen within the Adults with Learning Disabilities and Autism Team for an Adult Practitioner.

We work with those with an LD and/or Autism across Telford and whilst we are an adults team, our Transition workers are involved with those coming through that process from aged 14.

You will be expected to work in a person centred way to enable adults who are Autistic and/or diagnosed with a Learning Disability, to reach their full potential, maximise their social inclusion and achieve positive outcomes. 

We are proud to offer a working environment that is supportive and rewarding, where professional curiosity is actively encouraged, while working as part of a team who are passionate about the work they do.  We offer great training and development options to all roles. 

In addition to competitive rates of pay we offer an excellent benefits package to all of our employees; a generous annual leave and flexible working arrangements (to include mobile/home working) and Local Government Pension scheme.

Please note employees who are at risk will be considered first for this position.  Only if an appointment is not made will other candidates be considered.

We are committed to equality and diversity. Posts working with children or vulnerable groups will be subject to an appropriate criminal records check.

Please complete the on-line application form, including a supporting statement explaining your reasons for applying for this post and why you would make a good candidate.

At Telford & Wrekin Council, we know that having a diverse workforce is key to providing the best possible services to our community. We celebrate having a diverse and inclusive culture where people are able to be themselves at work, and everyone has a voice.

Posts working with children or vulnerable groups will be subject to an appropriate criminal records check. It is an offence to apply for a role that involves engaging in regulated activity with children and adults in vulnerable circumstances if you are barred from working with one or both of these groups.

We value our employees and offer staff rewards and plenty of opportunities for personal development and career progression including:

  • Competitive rates of pay
  • Automatic access to a secure, flexible and tax efficient Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Staff benefits and discounts including salary sacrifice schemes
  • Free on-site parking
  • Generous leave entitlement (24 days rising to 32 days) plus 8 bank holidays and an additional concessionary day
  • Free access to our employee assistance programme and confidential counselling
  • Flexible and mobile working policy - we are well adapted to a hybrid model of working which includes a combination of time spent in the office and at home – our approach is to promote greater level of flexible working around personal and family commitments
