John and Andrew are twins with autism and a learning disability. After the death of their parents, the brothers have continued to receive support from Mencap staff so they can live active and independent lives.
The people who work for us make the biggest impact. And that’s where you come in!
Right now people with a learning disability face inequalities in every area of life. We tackle the issue head on through campaigning and the delivery of high quality support and services to those who need us. We need people who are positive, committed and passionate about changing lives. And we guarantee it will change your life too.
Are you up for it?
Everyone wants a purposeful job - to do something really meaningful. At Mencap, we can give you that. You’ll have opportunities to develop as a person, colleague, leader and activist.
You’ll make new friends (everyone here is pretty great) and you’ll feel inspired to reach your potential. We’ll ask a lot of you - but you’ll get back so much more. With us, it’s never ‘just a job’.
It’s more than just a job – that’s what Mencap employees say. You might have worked for a charity before, or for another care provider, but with us you get something different. You’re part of something bigger.
We’re changing lives every day in our services, and with our campaigning. Come and join us. And in return we’ll support you to develop as a person, expert and colleague.
