Do you want to make a positive difference to people's lives?
Mencap are recruiting for Support Workers in Leamington Spa
We are currently looking to expand our team of dedicated Support Workers within the Warwickshire area who support people with a learning disability. We currently have various hours available, offering either Part Time or Full Time opportunities.
Want to know more about the day to day life of a support worker?
As a Support worker supporting individuals with challenging behaviour you will be expected to provide an outstanding level of care that will enormously contribute to the people we support, living a more comfortable, dignified, independent and happy life.
This will include:
Personal care - helping people to get ready for the day and assisting with bathing, showering and using the bathroom.
Administering medications, helping out with house work, organizing appointments and cooking delicious healthy meals.
Excellent communication skills - an ability to be able to adapt your manner in how you speak to make the information understood by all of the people that you will be supporting.
The people you will be caring for all have different hobbies and interests and the right person for this role will hopefully enjoy trying new things and going out into the community… whether it be a morning down at the local ponds, fishing, a shopping trip into town, or a mini break away for a few days… no two days are the same!!
*If you're matched to a role, you'll be classed as a key worker. Frontline health and social care workers and the most vulnerable are currently being vaccinated. If you join us in a support role, you will be included in your local COVID-19 vaccine deployment programme
