Mencap are looking for Relief Support Workers where you will be in control of the days you work, so working around the children, study or a 2nd job is possible when working on relief!

You will be responsible for the day to day livelihood of 9 individuals who have a learning disability and are based in Islington. You 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 sight seeing in London, throwing parties or even visiting friends and family of those we support. One thing that is guaranteed is with this group you`ll definitely be throwing some shapes on the dance floor. 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.

Supporting someone with their daily life is not a 9-5 job. You will be offered shifts across a range of different days and shift patterns, including some sleep in shifts

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)
