Our person centred, professional teams are looking for responsible and motivated Relief Support Workers to join them to support Adults with a range of needs.
The people we support in Seaford see many things as being important to them, be it through supporting them in adult life with things like finance and supporting them while cooking dinner, or with more general support such as going to new places and talking to people. Aside from day to day support, you will also need to support these individuals with their hobbies; be it through clothes shopping, swimming, playing on computer games and going to the seaside to name but a few - here at Mencap, it's clear no two days will be the same.
The people we support have said that you will need to be genuinely nice, informative and proactive in supporting them which would allow you to make a real difference to their lives. They would like you to prompt them rather than tell them when supporting them as nobody likes being told what to do.
As a support worker, all you'll need to have is a positive attitude and a desire to improve the lives of those with a learning disability. If you support the people at our services, we will support you with award winning training and progression opportunities throughout your career with us.
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 award winning training and progression opportunities throughout your career with us.
Enhanced DBS is required for each successful candidate which is paid for by Mencap.
