Are you a huge fan of monopoly? Do you love to cook healthy meals? Do you enjoy travelling? If you can answer yes to these questions, then you should immediately apply for this opportunity as 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 in Newark who are supporting a unique group of 5 who have a learning disability.

You don`t really need to have any of the above interests but you do need to answer yes to the below questions:

  • Are you caring, kind and attentive?
  • Do you like to help and ensure that people live the life they want to lead?
  • Are you looking for a fun, enthusiastic and motivated company who offer genuine career opportunities?

You will be responsible for the day to day livelihood of these individuals and will help with medication, finances and daily living tasks. These individuals like to be fully involved in everything that is happening with their lives and need you to ensure this happens for them.

Another big part of being a support worker is being a big part of the fun! You should expect to be involved in visiting friends and family, cooking new and healthy meals, playing board games and always ensuring that their homes are full of laughter and care.

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.

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)
