Support Worker - 20 hours - Leedstown

Posted 6 November 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 Leedstown service where we support two older gentlemen with a learning disability in their own home.

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.

Supporting with daily living tasks, finances, administering medication, assisting with meals and managing their tenancy will be a large part of your role, but that's not all. Being a Support Worker means that you also get to create some fantastic memories and take part in the fun!

Supporting these gentlemen may mean going out on day trips, swimming at a local pool, visiting steam trains, or finding somewhere scenic to sit down and have a nice cup of tea. Both of the gentlemen have different personalities and enjoy different activities, so no day will ever be the same!

It's important that you are comfortable with providing personal care in this role - the gentlemen that we support require both personal and continence care.

Have a look at the attached profile created by the people that we support to learn a little bit more about how these gentlemen like to be supported.

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!), evenings and sleep-ins (Payment for sleep ins is competitive and compliant with National Living Wage requirements). We plan our rotas in advance and try to work with you to find a shift pattern that suits you as well as the needs of the service.

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 Leedstown. A Full UK Driving Licence is essential for this post.

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