We are looking to expand our team of Support Workers that run the Mencap Liverpool Respite service. We are looking to introduce 3 relief support staff to the service in order to support the already well established staff team with shift cover for annual leave, sickness and to also cover any additionally funded hours that can be either 1 : 1 and outreach support etc.
Our current rota includes sleep-in shifts, day hours and waking night shifts 7 days a week, some of these shifts will be lone working and others with be working alongside other members of the team.
We are looking for the successful candidate to ideally have experience supporting adults with learning disabilities, they would also need to be flexible and adaptable due to the nature of the respite service.
The role will require people to accept hours at short notice and be called on if the service receives emergency cases. We aim to fully integrate these new recruits into our team so that they can gain the relevant knowledge and experience required in order to ensure that the service runs smoothly, efficiently and effectively with a strong stable team that consists of both contracted and regular relief staff.
