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.

There is currently a staff team of 14 so you will be joining a supportive and strong team.

It is really important to the people we support that they are able to see their families regularly, there are 3 motability cars at the service and the people we support are reliant on support staff to drive them to 1 to 1 activitiesTherefore, drivers are preferable.

The four need your help to live as independently as possible they need help with keeping their house clean, going shopping, cooking, attending activities like gardening and art projects so they can be a part of their local community. Personal care is a large part of the role along with manual handling.

The shifts usually range from 7am to 11pm, however you must be willing to work flexibly as and when required. You will work on a rota basis throughout the week and at weekends including Bank Holidays.
