About Mencap At Mencap we work in partnership with people with a learning disability. We do this by providing high quality, flexible services that support people, including young adults, to live as independently as possible in their own homes and in the community.
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.
We are looking for inspirational and enthusiastic Support Workers to join our hard working teams in Bishopthorpe where we have two 30 hours posts available.
Our aim is to support people with developing their skills, whilst also supporting them to integrate into their local community.
We aim to do this through person centred practice, ensuring the people we are supporting are at the centre of everything we do.
We will enable them to live a fulfilling life and also help them to achieve the things that are important to them.
You will provide support in leisure activities (including Hydrotherapy, so you must be willing to get in the water!), cleaning, cooking and supporting with personal care.
You will help the people we support to lead the life they choose as we focus on person centred support, tailored to individuals needs.
Flexibility is important as shifts are throughout the day and evenings and they will be spread across the week / weekends and include bank holidays.
As all our shifts are on a rota basis you will know at least a month ahead what shifts you have been allocated for allowing you to plan your time accordingly.
Being a Support Worker here at Mencap is a rewarding job as you get to make a positive difference in the life of someone with a learning disability.
