Outreach Support Worker - Launceston, Cornwall

Posted 21 December 2017 by Mencap Ended

Would you like to finish work each day knowing that you have made a difference?

We are looking for a positive, compassionate and caring Support Worker to work within our Launceston service.

There are 16 individuals that we support in this service who live independently in the Launceston area who have a learning disability. The number of people that you support throughout the day will vary - it could be two or three, or five or six, depending on the individuals that you will be supporting.

You will be responsible and involved in the everyday life of the people that we support,making sure that they are fully involved when it comes to receiving the support that they all need and want.

There will be a range of activities that you will support with including cooking, cleaning, checking post, shopping, arranging appointments, emotional support, activities, outings, socialising and supporting with job placements.

A Full UK Driving License will be an essential requirement for this post.

We put the people who we support at the heart of what we do. We make sure that everyone is as equally involved with the recruitment process as our very own recruitment team. If you look at the pink box titled "additional information" you'll see some information about some of the people that we support.

As a support worker, flexibility is key for both yourself and for the service, as you may be required to work a variety of different shifts throughout the week, including mornings (ideal for you early risers!), and evenings. The best thing about flexibility? It's a two-way street. While we may require that you work a variety of shifts, we also understand that you'll have your own requirements and will listen to any requests for flexibility you may have as long as the needs of the service can be met.

As long as you have a positive attitude and want to improve the lives of those with a learning disability, we want to hear from you. This role has a unique set of challenges, but our award winning training will ensure that you are the best Support Worker that you can be,whether you have lots experience or are just starting out in your career.

This position is based in Launceston.

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