Established in 1966 by Kenneth Newton Wright, the parent of a disabled child, MacIntyre has grown to become a leading national charity, highly respected and committed to setting standards and increasing choice.

Health and Social Care
The Relief (Bank) post supports the permanent rota staff by completing shifts that are vacant due to annual leave/sickness/training/unforeseen circumstances. As such, hours are non specific but the service will endeavour to balance the needs of the service against your own work/life balance as appropriately as possible.
You don’t need experience to become a Relief Support Worker but you will need to be patient and resilient, with loads of common sense. Perhaps you have an interest in psychology or want to specialise in autistic spectrum conditions. Either would be a good fit for this job.
We have people join us from all walks of life. Stick with us and we’ll teach you all you need to know.
If you have a particular interest in counselling, psychology or in working with people on the autistic spectrum, who may sometimes display behaviours that challenge; that would be a good fit.
The work is demanding and it’s not for everyone but with the support of your colleagues the ultimate reward is the heart felt feeling of being able to see the positive impact you’re able to have on another’s life and this is something that you’ll never forget.
You will need a full manual drivers licence (held for at least 12 months) and be aged 21 or over (for insurance purposes) to be able to drive the companys mobility car.
