Are you looking to make a difference each and every day you're at work?
We are looking for proactive, passionate and dedicated Support Workers to join our friendly team in Launceston, Cornwall on a permanent basis.
We are currently supporting two gentlemen with a learning disability, who share a lovely, homely supported living house in Launceston. Both individuals love getting out and about, playing and doing activities as well as listening to music and having fun! As a Support Worker for Mencap you need to be able to meet the needs of those that we support as well as be flexible and resourceful in order to keep up with them! When at home, they like to be involved in the upkeep of their house and garden as well as household chores, such as cooking, cleaning and washing.

As a support worker, flexibility is key for both yourself and for the service, as you may be required to work a variety of different shifts throughout the week, including mornings (ideal for you early risers!), evenings and sleep-ins (Payment for sleep ins is competitive and compliant with National Living Wage requirements). The best thing about flexibility? It's a two-way street. While we may require that you work a variety of shifts, we also understand that you’ll have your own requirements – have you got commitments on a Thursday? Not to worry, we can factor this in, as well as other requests (provided you give us enough notice) into our rotas.
Please note, a full and valid UK drivers licence is preferable for this role.
By joining us in this home, you will have the opportunity to make new friends and become inspired to be the very best that you can be, which will guide and help you to develop within your chosen career path.
