Do you love all animals ESPECIALLY dogs? If you answered yes then please read on as you`ll be a great match for our service!
We support 4 men who have a learning disability and live in our supported living service in Cheadle. We are looking for a happy go lucky and organised person to join us as a support worker and work within our friendly, positive and energetic team.
The people we support require different support but they all need support around personal care, medication administration and also support with their health issues. More than anything they want to live an independent and happy life being supported by you. They have their own hobbies which vary from collecting model cars, watching TV, seeing their families or even just going for a coffee and people watching.
We have contracts available for various hours per week. The people we support at this service all have their own car so although being a driver is not essential, it is preferred.
Supporting someone with their daily life is not a 9-5 job. You will need to be able to work across a range of different days and shift patterns, including some sleep in shifts (Payment for sleep ins is competitive and compliant with National Living Wage requirements). We realise that your quality time is important too, so your rota is prepared well in advance - Got a request, something special going on? Your manager will certainly try to help you meet it.
One of the most amazing things about being a Support Worker is that anyone can do it! As long as you have a positive attitude and want to improve the lives of those with a learning disability, we will support you with progression opportunities throughout your career with us.
An enhanced DBS will be required for each successful candidate (Paid for by Mencap, T&Cs apply)
