We are currently looking to expand our team of dedicated support workers who are based Tamworth and are supporting 8 people who have a learning disability.

You will be responsible for the day to day livelihood of these individuals and will help with medication, finances and daily living tasks. These individuals like to be fully involved in everything that is happening with their lives and need you to ensure this happens for them.

Another big part of being a support worker is being a big part of the fun! You can expect to spend your spectacular days at the theatre, cinema, swimming, going on holidays or going shopping for a new outfit. Creating memories is one of the really rewarding parts of being a support worker.

The people we support have created profiles about what they want from their support worker, please have a look at this on the additional details tab.

Support workers must be flexible in the hours they can work, as support can be required 24 hours a day. You will work on a rota basis throughout the week, weekends and bank holidays with sleep-ins as well.

One of the most amazing things about being a Support Worker is that anyone can do it! As long as you have a positive attitude and want to improve the lives of those with a learning disability, we will support you with progression opportunities throughout your career with us.

An enhanced DBS will be required for each successful candidate (Paid for by Mencap, T&Cs apply)
