We immediately need incredible, caring people to join our team of brilliant Support Workers across the country to provide vital support for people with a learning disability. We have Part Time, Full Time and Relief contracts available across the country.

As a Support Worker, you will be supporting people in different ways, ranging from administering medication, helping with personal care and offering support with cooking healthy meals and general day-to-day life activities.

Flexibility is key for both yourself and for the people we support, as you may be required to work a variety of different shifts throughout the week including some weekends, mornings (ideal for you early risers!), evenings and potentially sleep ins.

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 complete training and progression opportunities throughout your career with us.

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’.

  • Please note, applicants will be called to complete a telephone screen, with successful applicants being invited to a Skype or telephone interview with the relevant Service Manager

An enhanced DBS will be required for each successful candidate (Paid for by Mencap, T&Cs apply)
