What a heart warming feeling it is to bring a smile to another's face. But do you know what lasts longer than a smile? The feeling of supporting and empowering people with learning disabilities and autism to live a life that makes sense to them.

Seeing the difference that YOU can make. Now that IS rewarding….

We are seeking experienced and non experienced Support Workers

MacIntyre is an award-winning national charity supporting people with learning disabilities. 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.

We're looking for a support worker to join our very small and friendly residential home very close to the city center.

You will be supporting in one of our care homes in Glenfield, with a range of activities from the everyday living needs and ‘must dos’ (such as assisting with medications, supporting with attending health and medical appointments, moving and handling, personal care and PBS support), through to the lighter side of life doing things like supporting individuals going to the cinema, taking a walk to the local shops to get magazines, swimming, supporting to go to Leicester City football home games,  helping to cook delicious healthy meals and getting involved with arts and crafts. 

You'll also be supporting our adults with personal development through taking part in our highly praised training program.

This role is 37.5 hours per week working on a rota that consists of shifts covering; 7am -3pm or 2.45-10pm 24/7 including weekends and bank holidays, with sleeps at the service.

You will need a full manual drivers licence that allows you to drive in the UK.
