This role is to support the Service Manager and Co-ordinator by taking responsibility for a small team of workers supporting people with learning disabilities to live independently in their own homes and to take part in social activities.

The role involves working to a rota which will include some unsocial hours and may include sleep-ins. You will also be part of the on-call rota for which additional payment will be made.

You will be working mainly in the Huddersfield area but must be prepared to work across Kirklees. You will need to be a driver with your own car available for work. Exceptions to this can be made if you are unable to drive due to a disability.

If you think you have the right attitude for this type of work and you want to make a difference to people’s lives then we would really like to hear from you.

Pay Rates

When the pay rate says “depending on qualifications” the lower rate is for people who do not have a Level 2 Diploma/NVQ in Health and Social Care and the higher rate is for people who have a Level 3 Diploma/NVQ.

If you do not have a Level 2 when you are appointed then you will complete your Care Certificate and start working towards your Level 2. Once you have your Level 2 you will receive an extra 15 pence per hour. After the Level 2 you can choose if you want to complete your Level 3. On completion of a Level 3 you will receive an extra 20 pence per hour. After 18 months of satisfactory service you will receive a further pay rise of 25 pence per hour.

If the pay rate says “fixed rate” then it doesn’t change due to qualifications gained or length of service.

Staff get a lot of training at Mencap in Kirklees and there are no charges for any of the courses. There are also no uniforms to buy or charges for things like DBS checks.

If you have to travel as part of your job, maybe while working on the community team, then you will be paid 45 pence per mile towards your fuel and car costs.
