Advonet are pleased to be inviting applications for the post of Leeds Autism AIM volunteer coordinator. This is an exciting opportunity to help further develop an innovative service together with autistic adults locally to ensure the views of autistic adults are heard and acted on.

  • Mentoring service
  • Information/signposting
  • Training/consultation

Leeds Autism AIM is part of Advonet, the independent advocacy provider in Leeds, so a passion to enable and empower people to have their voice heard and a commitment to working in a person-centred way is essential. We are looking for applicants with experience of working alongside autistic adults as well as working alongside volunteers and/or developing projects.

You will be working alongside a majority autistic staffed AIM team and responsible for maintaining and developing our autism mentor service and wider autism volunteer provision.

The post is for 22 hours/three days a week with potential to increase hours as this is a growing project. The ability to work flexible hours including some evenings is necessary.
