Everyone wants a purposeful job - to do something meaningful. At Mencap, we can give you that. You will have opportunities to develop as a person, colleague, leader and activist.
You’ll make new friends and feel inspired to reach your potential. We will ask a lot of you - but you’ll get back so much more.
With us, it is never just a job’.
In return for your hard work and passion, we can give you real meaning and purpose in your work.
