Two new project worker roles at Grapevine – apply now!

This Monday (6 September) we have two new jobs opening up at Grapevine! Both positions work to strengthen people with learning disabilities and autism, helping them realise their potential and belong to their community.

The project worker roles are based at our offices in Spon End, Coventry in our Help and Connect team, commissioned by Coventry City Council, but you will most often be out in the community where people are. There will be some online presence too as we ensure the people we’re working with are equipped with the skills to stay connected no matter what lies ahead.

The Health Team helps train peers and professionals in how to stay healthy from top to toe when you have a learning disability or autism

More details on each position are below. Please apply by following the links and submit your application no later than 1pm on Saturday 25 September to be considered for interview.

This is your chance to do something that matters – helping people take action to build better lives.
