Do you love to soak up the sun? Do you enjoy getting involved in arts and crafts? If you answer yes to either of these questions then youre going to get on so well with the people we support.

We support 12 people with a learning disability and live in a supported living service. We are looking to grow our team of dedicated, caring and enthusiastic support workers.

As a support worker you will be supporting people in different ways. The type of support you will provide would be around administering medication, helping with personal care and offering support with cooking healthy meals. Being a support worker isnt just about making day to day life its about having fun! Fun with this group could be anything from going bowling and scoring a strike, knitting blankets for the local dog shelter, having a chin wag or even going on holiday and soaking up some sun. Creating memories with these individuals is one of the rewarding parts of being a support worker!

Have a look at the additional information attached created by the people we support, there is also an additional 2 profiles from 2 of the individuals. This will give you an idea of what the people we support want from you.

As a support worker, flexibility is key for both yourself and for the service, as you may be required to work a variety of different shifts throughout the week, including mornings (ideal for you early risers!), evenings and sleep-ins (Payment for sleep ins is competitive and compliant with National Living Wage requirements). The best thing about flexibility? It's a two-way street. While we may require that you work a variety of shifts, we also understand that youll have your own requirements - have you got commitments on a Thursday? Not to worry, we can factor this in, as well as other requests (provided you give us enough notice) into our rotas.

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)
