East Kent Mencap offers high-quality personalised day services to adults with learning disabilities and complex needs throughout East Kent. We are currently offering a full time contract for a Senior Support Worker to work in our Resource Centre in the Sheerness area. As this is an expanding service, your hours will also initially need to be shared within our housing and community areas.
East Kent Mencap is looking to recruit a number of support workers working on a zero hours basis to join our rapidly expanding 'bank team' in Thanet. We support people with a learning disability within a number of East Kent Mencap supported living homes based in Cliftonville, as well as individuals within their own homes.
