About you

Experience isn’t always necessary. If you have the right attitude, good customer service skills, share our values and are willing to learn, you’re likely to be a great fit. We are looking for people who celebrate differences, and we strive to make all our staff feel included, valued and respected.

For some of our roles you'll need to be a driver, in order to drive service vehicles, and that will be clear on each advert.

About us

MacIntyre is a national charity which supports over 1,200 people with a learning disability and/or autism.

At Macintyre we fully support your training and development. We know it can be daunting to start a new job, and not everyone learns the same way, so throughout your probation we will provide you with a mixture of eLearning, face-to-face training and mentoring support whilst on the job.

But it doesn't stop there - throughout your career with us you will have access to our own dedicated in house Learning and Development team, Quality Specialists and HR Teams. These teams, along with your Manager, will provide you with opportunities to learn and develop professionally as well as enabling and supporting you to achieve professional qualifications and career progression opportunities - all free of charge.

Pay and Rewards

We provide a range of benefits to reward and thank our staff which includes:

  • 30 days' annual leave including statutory public holidays (pro rata for part-time roles)
  • Workplace Pension scheme – MacIntyre will contribute 3% of your salary to all eligible employees
  • MacIntyre Staff Savings Scheme
  • Employee Assistance Plan (EAP) to support your health and wellbeing
