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 are currently recruiting a number of Relief Support Workers to support people with learning disabilities in the Chapel Allerton Area in Leeds. 

This is an exciting opportunity supporting people to move into, set up and live in their own homes moving out from registered care.

This role is to work on an 'as and when' basis. Relief work is a great way to get your work to fit around you! 

The people we support all require different support but they all need support around personal care, medication administration and also support with their health issues.  More than anything they want to live an independent and happy life being supported by you.  They have their own hobbies, which vary.

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.

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

It would be great if you could drive but not essential as some of the people we support have their own mobility cars
