Do you want to work for an award-winning charity?

Could you teach adults with learning disabilities essential life skills?

You'll be working as a Learning Support Worker, supporting people to learn a whole range of life skills, to help them develop and grow. Perhaps you're a good cook, happy to pass on your abilities. Maybe you'd like to coach people into work experience or paid employment. Or bring your own skills, interests and hobbies to the table and pass them on!

We have full-time or part-time Learning Support Worker opportunities in the Kennington area. All are day-time roles with core hours between 9.00am and 4.00pm, though some flexibility may be required at times depending on the activity you are undertaking.

There could also be some evening/weekend also depending on the people we support. The current part time opportunities will be discussed further at interview but let us know your preference on your application form. You can call Penny Canwell on Tel: 01865 604 410 to talk about your current situation and how that could work for MacIntyre.

Although we welcome people who have worked as Healthcare worker, Teaching Assistants or similar, you don't need experience, as we provide full free training. There is also some personal care involved with these positions.

It is also essential you have a full driving licence.

Who are we?

We use person centred approaches to keep the people we support safe, happy and healthy and to ensure each individual is able to live a life that makes sense to them. Using Positive Behaviour Support strategies ensures we see the person first, not their behaviour or learning disability.
