Do you love to listen to Sir Cliff Richard? Are you partial to a drink of whiskey? Do you prefer McDonalds to KFC? If you answer yes to any of these questions, then you`re going to get on so well with the people we support.

We are currently looking to expand our team of dedicated support workers who are based in a Stoke On Trent and are supporting 8 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. Another big part of being a support worker is being a big part of the fun! You should expect to be involved in listening to Cliff Richard, going shopping for Angel figurines, going to the disco, taking photos of even drinking whiskey. Creating memories is one of the really rewarding parts of being a support worker.

The people we support have created profiles about what they want from their support worker, please have a look at this on the additional details tab.

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 requirements).

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)
