Are you looking for a rewarding role where you can make a real difference to the lives of people with a Learning Disability?We have an exciting new opportunity for dedicated and passionate individuals to join our team in Penzance. There are a wide range of ages and abilities, offering a real variety in both personalities and experiences, and we work to clearly focus on a person-centered approach to support - something we are passionate about here at Mencap.

The people we support need you to be understanding, reliable and most importantly caring - one of Mencap's key values. As a Relief Support Worker, you will be helping others in their daily routines, with activities like;shopping, cooking, finances, medication and administration and providing support with personal care. Hobbies are a huge part of the lives of the people we support and you will be required to assist the people we support during a number of activities. You will support them in organising activities and accessing the community, to socialise and for leisure so you can expect no two days to be the same!

We are looking for individuals who are patient and adaptable, with a real "Can-do" attitude, good administration and record keeping skills and proactive in their approach to supporting others. Being a support worker isn't just about making the day to day life easier, it's about improving the lives of these individuals, so they can live the life that they choose and certainly deserve. Helping the people we support achieve their goals is one of the most rewarding parts of being a support worker and we will support you with our award winning training and progression opportunities which 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.

As a Relief Support Worker, flexibility is key for both yourself and for the service, as you will be required to work a variety of different shifts including mornings, days, evenings and nights, which are essential to the service. 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 commitments and we will factor this into our rotas.

This is an extremely rewarding role for the right person and If you wish to finish each day knowing you have made a difference to other people's lives, then we want to hear from you!
