Support Workers - Oxford and Abingdon
£16,820 per annum, pro-rata + excellent benefits
How would you like to finish work each day knowing that you have made a difference?
We are looking for positive, compassionate and caring Support Workers to work within our Wantage service on either a full-time or part-time basis where we support 12 people with a learning disability.
You will be responsible and involved in the everyday life of the people that we support, making sure that they receive the support that theyneed and want.
So what does our Wantage service look like?
The service is made up of one shared house and individual flats. The people that we support in this service love being supported out into the community, or an evening out to see an act or a performance, as well as swimming and going to the gym.
Interested in carrying on the conversation?
You don't need to have experience but it is essential that you share our values. 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.
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 andshift patterns, including sleep ins (sleep ins are compliant and competitive with national living wage) . 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 - although, we do work on a rota basis, and you must be comfortable with shift working.
An enhanced DBS will be required for each successful candidate (Paid for by Mencap, T&Cs apply)
