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 Plymouth. The service provides supported living to the people we support who require a dedicated approach to person centered support - something we are passionate about here at Mencap. The people who we support need you to be understanding, reliable and most importantly caring - one of Mencap's key values.
This role has a unique set of challenges, but our award winning training and progression opportunities will ensure that you are the best Relief 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. 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 try to factor this into our rotas.
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 award winning training throughout your career with us.
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!
