Leeds Autism AIM is part of the Advonet Group, a growing organisation working with people who are marginalised, to raise their voices and have their rights respected. Leeds Autism AIM is co-led by autistic adults with the 75% of the staff team being autistic themselves.

We have an exciting opportunity based within the Leeds Autism AIM service for someone passionate about ensuring the autistic population, who experience a range of barriers and inequalities, have access to, and are enabled to live independent and fulfilling lives. The AIM service is recognised as being innovative, progressive, and pioneering by Third and Public Sector organisations and those who use our service.

  • Working with the AIM Team, external partners, and others to ensure the needs of those using the service are met.

  • Working in a collaborative way to improve access to services and outcomes for autistic adults.
  • Coordinating the running of the Autism Drop-In Hubs so that they run smoothly and efficiently.

As a Disability Confident Employer, we will offer interviews to any applicants with a disability who meet the essential criteria.
