Mencap is on a mission. We want to change the way people perceive those with a learning disability and we want to improve their lives.
A truly fantastic and highly rewarding role is now available to help us achieve our mission. We want you to become our Employment Facilitator and join us in delivering our Supported Internship Programme in Leeds. This is a full time fixed term contract although the contract could be extended dependent on funding.
We're looking for someone who can help a person with a learning disability get a practical work experience and helping provide a smooth transition to paid employment or additional study. The programme is designed to support young people (aged 16-24) to:
- Raise employment expectations
- Build skills and confidence levels
- Progress towards paid work.
It would be beneficial to have prior experience in helping people who have a learning disability or vulnerable adults get into further education or employment. You will need a good understanding of Ofsted requirements and you will also need to be able to drive.
This is a fantastic opportunity to positively help people with a learning disability and challenge attitudes towards learning disability as a whole.
Does this sound like you….? If the answer is yes then we you like to hear from you!!
