Time for a new career? Could you support people with learning disabilities helping them live the lives they want?

We have various vacancies both full time and part time across our services in the Warrington area supporting adults with learning disabilities.

About the role

You will play a key part in assisting the people we support to live as independently as possible. You will join in with the activities they enjoy, such as going to clubs, the cinema, visiting family and friends etc. You will also help support them with domestic activities such as shopping, cooking, cleaning and also with personal care (where necessary).

You'll take your turn working shifts on a rota, including days, evenings, nights, weekends, bank holidays and sleep-ins.

What we need from you

MacIntyre have many opportunities to transfer to other services to gain more experience or for promotion if you wish to progress your career in the sector.
