Mencap provides an extensive range of high quality services and support to people with learning disabilities and their families across Northern Ireland. Mencap works closely with individuals to help them live the way they choose, to achieve their learning and employment goals and make equal rights and opportunities a reality.

We are looking for someone who is trustworthy and caring, inclusive and enthusiastic about putting people with a learning disability at the heart of everything they do; who are positive and are not afraid to challenge wrong ways of thinking about learning disability.

This role requires the ability to occasionally work outside normal office hours and to travel to other Mencap locations when required.
