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.

We support 3 males and 1 female who have a learning disability and live in our supported living service in Pocklington. We are looking to grow our team of dedicated, experienced caring and enthusiastic relief support workers. 

The individuals in the service require support in many different ways. The type of support you will be providing would be around administering medication, helping with personal care, and offering support to live independent and happy lives.Being a support worker isn’t just about making day to day life easier it’s about having fun! Fun for these 4 individuals could be anything from listening to 60’s music, visiting friends and family, or going to see Hull City play. 

Supporting someone with their daily life is not a 9-5 job. You will need to be able to work across a range of different days and shifts, including mornings, afternoons, evenings, weekends, bank holidays and some sleep-ins. We realise that your quality time is important too, so your rota is prepared well in advance – Got a request, something special going on?

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.
