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'.

Job Advert
We are currently looking to expand our team of dedicated support workers who are based in a Chard and support people who have a learning disability.

You will be responsible for the day to day livelihood of these individuals and will help with medication, finances and daily living tasks. These individuals like to be fully involved in everything that is happening with their lives and need you to ensure this happens for them.

Another big part of being a Support Worker is being a big part of the fun! The fun you will have will be making boring tasks like housework fun, going out into the community, or even getting your dancing shoes on and having a boogie!

Support workers must be flexible in the hours they can work, as support can be required 24 hours a day. You will work on a rota basis throughout the week, weekends and bank holidays with sleep-ins as well (Payment for sleep ins is competitive and compliant with National Living Wage). The benefit however of being a relief support worker is the flexibility to choose the hours you can work.

As long as you have a positive attitude and want to improve the lives of those with a learning disability, we want to hear from you. This role has a unique set of challenges,but our award winning training will ensure that you are the best Support Worker that you can be, whether you have lots experience or are just starting out in your career.

An enhanced DBS will be required for each successful candidate (Paid for by Mencap, T&Cs apply)
