Apply for this job

Do you want an opportunity to make a real difference to someone's life? Could you teach adults with learning disabilities essential life skills on a part time basis?

Our Award winning charity are actively seeking a part-time Learning Support Worker (varoius hours available) in the Thame, Kennington and Oxford areas.

Outline

You will be working as a Learning Support Worker, supporting people to learn a whole range of life skills, to help them develop and grow. You will be compassionate, patient, willing to listen and someone who acknowledges people's feelings. Some of the activities include walking, particularly in the rain or near rivers, visiting stately homes and gardens, swimming, going to local groups and cafes.

Ideally we are looking for 3 days a week - ideally Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. All are day-time roles with core hours between 9.00am and 4.00pm, though some flexibility may be required at times depending on the activity you are undertaking.

Although we welcome people who have worked as Healthcare worker, Teaching Assistants or similar, you don't need experience, as we provide full free training. There is also some personal care involved with these positions. Due to the location and need of the role you must be a driver.

Who are we?

We are an Award winning Charity that has the core belief that everyone has potential, something to offer and a valuable contribution to make to their community.

We use a person centered approach 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. Using a Positive Behavior Support strategy ensures we see the person first, not their disability.

Pay and Rewards

MacIntyre provides a full induction and ongoing training, including the opportunity to gain nationally accredited vocational qualifications. We also offer a range of benefits which includes:

30 days' annual leave (including public holidays)
Workplace pension scheme
MacIntyre Perks which offers up to 6% discount off leading retailers including Tesco, Curry/PC World, Costa and many more
Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) to support your health and wellbeing
