We are looking for compassionate, keen and caring individuals to join our team of Support Workers to support a number of individuals with a learning disability within our services in Chelmsford, Essex.
As a Support Worker with Mencap you will find that the people that we support are very different and you will quickly discover that each of the people that we support are individuals with an entirely different set of great qualities, interests and passions.
No experience? No problem! We really want to hear from people that want to make a difference and are looking for a rewarding field of work. We can provide you with award winning training to prepare you for your role (And you are paid for the time that you are being inducted and trained!).
The Support that you provide will be tailored to the needs and preferences of the individual and you will need to be really creative in how you approach this fantastically rewarding, and sometimes challenging role.
Some of the areas that you might be providing support with include: supporting with community access, travel training, budgeting, encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle, relationships and friendships, cooking, supporting with bills and benefits, medical appointments and other daily living skills.
If you would like to work with the people that we support, helping them to live life to their fullest then please apply and tell us why you would be a great match.
