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

Mencap are currently recruiting relief support staff to join our Penzance Outreach team. You will be supporting people to live independently in their own homes and in the community. There is a mix of gender, individual abilities, ages and personalities so no day is the same.

The work will involve offering daily support to adults with a learning disability which can include support with shopping, budgeting, decision making, inclusion in the community and support with general day to day activities. Occasionally some of the gentlemen will save up their hours so they can have a trip to Somerset together to watch a game of cricket or a train trip to Plymouth for a change of scenery.

This role will suit an outgoing person who is committed to supporting and encouraging people to achieve their best. You should be motivated to look for opportunities and ways of working with people which can give new experiences and introduce them to new things.

A full, clean driving license is essential for this role, as well as having access to a vehicle.

If you think that this role might suit you and you are passionate about supporting people to reach their full potential than we would be very keen to hear from you.

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 15th October
