Description Are you positive and creative? Could you support people with learning disabilities, helping them live more independently? If so, apply today!

We are delighted to say we are expanding our supported living services in the Flitwick area, so we are looking for full-time (38 hpw) and part-time (various) Support Workers, to work with adults who have a range of learning disabilities.

About the role

You will play a key part in assisting the people we support to live as independently as possible. You will join in with their favourite pastimes and hobbies, helping them be active members of their local community.

Some people require help with intimate care or medication. They can display challenging behaviour and require emotional reassurance and support.

You'll take your turn working shifts on a rota, including days, evenings, weekends, bank holidays and sleep-ins (up to two a week).

What we need from you

Experience is not necessary, as we provide a full induction and free training programme. People join us from many different backgrounds, it's more important to us that you have a positive approach and are willing to learn.

It is essential for these positions that you hold a full manual driving licence which allows you to drive in the UK, as you will be required to drive people's motability vehicles.

For more information, download the attachments to this advert from the MacIntyre website.

Who are we?

MacIntyre is a leading national charity supporting people with learning disabilities. Our core belief is that everyone has potential, something to offer and a valuable contribution to make to their community.

Pay and Rewards

MacIntyre offers a full induction and ongoing training, including the opportunity to gain nationally accredited vocational qualifications. We also offer a range of benefits which include:

Generous annual leave allowance of 33 days including statutory public holidays, rising with service to a maximum of 38 days after five years.
Free training
Workplace pension scheme
MacIntyre Rewards - great retail and leisure discounts
Employee Assistance scheme to support your health and wellbeing
MacIntyre Staff Savings Scheme

Salaries are dependent on successful completion of a probation period. Part time positions are pro rata.

The closing date for this position is: Tuesday 06 February 2018.

Interviews will take place shortly after applications have been received and shortlisted.
