Support Worker - Plymouth - Various hours available

Posted 18 May by Mencap Ended

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

We are looking for an engaging and positive Support Worker to join our Plymouth service on either a full time (37.5 hours per week) or part time basis (15 - 30 hours per week) where we support a number of individuals with a learning disability.

They say variety is the spice of life and it's really true in this case in this service, we have a range of ages and support needs in this service as well as lots of different interests and hobbies that the people that we support enjoy! You might be supporting one gentleman who loves trainspotting, or another that enjoys going to the pub and out for meals. We also have a lady who loves having her nails painted, and her hair done. In fact, most of the people that we support are really social and would love their Support Worker to join in the fun - especially when it comes to supporting them when they go bowling, or to local clubs in the area and shows and musicals!

It's really important that you're comfortable when it comes to working with people who have complex health needs as there will be personal and medication support required within this service, as well as support when it comes to eating and drinking - but our award winning training will ensure that you are fully equipped to be the best Support Worker that you can be!

This is a really happy service with lots of exciting things going on - you might be involved in the latest project, the staff and the people we support are working together to create a sensory room in the property, putting in new lights and jukebox!

Interested in carrying on the conversation?

You don't need to have experience but it is essential that you share our values. 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 progression opportunities throughout your career with us.

Please note that a Full UK Driving Licence would be essential for this post as the people we support have their own mobility vehicle.

Support workers must be flexible in the hours they can work, as support can be required 24 hours a day. You will work on a rota basis throughout the week, weekends and bank holidays with sleep-ins (Sleep ins are compliant and in line with national living wage) as well. We have roles for full time, part time and relief work available. We plan our rota's in advance and will try to work with you in order to suit both your needs and the service.

This position is based in Plymouth (Support Worker - Plymouth)

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