Job Description:

Do you have a passion for helping others?

Mencap is the leading voice of learning disability.

Everyone wants a purposeful job - to do something really meaningful. At Mencap, we can give you that. You’ll make new friends and feel inspired to reach your potential. We’ll ask a lot of you - but you’ll get back so much more. With us, it’s never ‘just a job’.

Support Workers have a massive impact on the lives of the people they support. You can help us to make a difference to the lives of people with a learning disability here and now.

That means listening to them, understanding what they like, and supporting them to make decisions and achieve the things they want to achieve.

We are looking to expand our team of dedicated Support Workers at our Devizes services where we are currently supporting 3 adults in total – Devizes overlooks the infamous ‘white horse’ on the hill.

We have various contracts available and welcome applicants that are looking for full-time or part-time opportunities.

Flexibility is important as all our shifts will be spread across the weekdays and weekends. Shifts are rota based and will be spread across morning, afternoons, evening and include sleep-ins (Sleep-in payments are compliant with National Living Wage).

Some of the activities you will be supporting the people we support with will include helping them to prepare tasty meals, helping them to understand their money and taking them out to the local community – do you pride yourself on being able to have some fun?

Aside from day to day support, you will also need to support these individuals with their hobbies; be it, ensuring their car magazines are brought once a month, going swimming or going for a celebratory burger – who doesn’t enjoy a cheeky cheeseburger for a Saturday night treat?

The people we support all have a variety of personalities, which requires a dedicated approach to person centred support – something we are passionate about here at Mencap.
