At Mencap, we value a diverse and inclusive workplace and we intentionally plan for the success of our colleagues in everything we do. We welcome applications from everyone, so come as you are and join us. Together we are Mencap!

We are currently looking to expand our team of dedicated support workers in Tamworth who support a unique group of 8 people who have a learning disability and complex needs.

Everyone has their own requirements but the type of support you will provide would be around administering medication, helping with personal care, financial assistance and daily living tasks. Being a support worker isn't just about making day to day life easier it's about being a part of the fun. The individuals in the service love to be out and about in the community taking part in hobbies they enjoy. The adults we support enjoy a variety of things such as eating out, going to the cinema, shopping and attending discos - Who doesn't love a boogie!?

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!) afternoons and evenings. Sleep-Ins are also a requirement.

The people we support have created a profile to give you an idea about what they need from a support worker. Please look at the additional details tab to read more.

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)
