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 meaningful. At Mencap, we can give you that. You will have opportunities to develop as a person, colleague, leader and activist.

You’ll make new friends and feel inspired to reach your potential. We will ask a lot of you - but you’ll get back so much more. With us, it is 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 provide support to people who have a learning disability in Kidlington who live in their own homes and in the community.
 
As a Relief Support Worker, you will have the flexibility to choose when you work, depending on hours available and can fit your hours around another job, kids and personal life. Work hours will be spread across weekdays and weekends, mornings, afternoons, evenings and nights. You will need to be able to work across a range of different days and shift patterns, including some sleep in shifts (Payment for sleep-ins is compliant with National Living Wage).
 
You will be responsible for the day to day livelihood of these individuals and will help with medication, finances and daily living tasks. Being a support worker isn’t just about making day to day life great, it’s about being a part of the fun! Creating memories is a very rewarding part 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. 

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.
