About Mencap
 At Mencap we work in partnership with people with a learning disability. We do this by providing high-quality, flexible services that support people, including young adults, to live as independently as possible in their own homes and in the community.
 

Everyone wants a purposeful job - to do something really meaningful. At Mencap, we can give you that. You’ll have opportunities to develop as a person, colleague, leader and activist.

You’ll make new friends and feel inspired to reach your potential. We’ll ask a lot of you - but you’ll get back so much more. With us, it’s never ‘just a job’.

In return for your hard work and passion we can give you real meaning and purpose in your work.

Job Advert
We have an opportunity for Relief Support Workers to join us at our services in Selby, North Yorkshire. 

Your support will contribute to maximising the independent living skills for the people we support. You will support them to get involved in cooking, cleaning, shopping and leisure activities throughout the day as well as personal care. You must be willing to work flexibly across a variety of shift patterns including mornings, afternoons, sleep ins, weekends and bank holidays. Experience within the care sector is an advantage but not a necessity as full training will be provided.
 

The typical shifts are 7am to 2pm, 8am to 3pm, 2pm to 9pm and 3pm to 10pm.  There are also some varying shifts during the day for 1 to 1 activities.  These can be 9am to 4pm, 10am to 3pm and 6pm to 11pm.

This is a hugely rewarding role. One of our Support Workers has said: “Being able to go to work every day and bring a smile to someone’s face and help them achieve goals in their daily life is the most rewarding feeling in the world”.

If you can work in a people orientated role, are a caring person who enjoys enabling people to achieve their life goals and aspirations we would love to hear from you.
 
An enhanced DBS will be required if successful.
 
Car Driver preferred to drive motability cars.
