We’re looking for talented individuals who are passionate about our mission.
Whatever role you take on, whatever your skills or specialism, this is your chance to make a difference to the lives of autistic children and young people.
We have a clear vision of what we want our education settings to achieve. We want to prepare children and young people for a happy and fulfilling life and, whilst doing so, afford them dignity, respect, and compassion.
By taking on a role at one of our schools or college, you will directly support this mission. Every day you will help autistic children and young people achieve their goals and reach their potential.
There will be challenge at times, but huge rewards and excellent opportunities for personal and professional development. We don't believe you'll get a stronger sense of achievement anywhere else.
Working for our charity team you will use your expertise to make a powerful impact that will help us transform the lives of autistic children and young people. Whether you are raising awareness, campaigning for change or supporting autistic young people to make their voices heard, your role will be richly rewarding.
If you have been shortlisted, you will be sent a criminal history self-disclosure that must be returned to us prior to interview. We will provide you with information about what details must and must not be disclosed and contact details of organisations that can provide impartial advice. Any relevant criminal history that you disclose will be discussed with you at the interview stage.
Due to the current pandemic most interviews are taking place virtually.
At Ambitious about Autism we recognise the values and strengths each individual brings to the team. Please be open and honest with us when demonstrating your skills, knowledge and expertise, so we can find out as much relevant information about you as possible.
We look forward to meeting you and welcome questions about the role and organisation.
We offer feedback to all interviewed candidates. Please be aware that we do not reimburse candidates for travel or online expenses. Good luck!
If we have offered you a role – congratulations! We can’t wait for you to be a part of the amazing work we’re doing.
Safeguarding is at the heart of everything we do. We do our best to have this process completed before your first day but that’s not always possible, so if there’s anything you can do to help speed things along we would be most grateful. Our safeguarding process will include: - obtaining an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) certificate to enable you to work with children and young adults. We also must have your references returned & verified satisfactory as well as proof and confirmation around any gaps in your employment.
Due to the current pandemic we will ask you to scan in your original ID or in some cases dependant on your role, you will be invited to one of our sites for an ID check prior to your start date.
On your first day expect a warm welcome and introduction to your team, be it online or in person plus you'll be given an induction programme to help you settle in.
From all the team, we look forward to working with you.
