Drummond Court is a 24 hour residential site consisting of 5 bungalows and a block of flats in Bury St Edmunds.

We currently support 30 adults with a learning disability, physical disability or other support needs. Some are very independent and like to do things with minimal support, others need around the clock support to enable them to carry out their day to day life.

As well as completing domestic duties and necessary paperwork, you will be supporting with their bed time routine, administering medication, assistance throughout the night, breakfast preparation and assisting with personal care (essential).

We have permanent contracts up to 37.5 hours per week available. Shifts are approx 9pm-8am and include weekends and bank holidays. It is important that you can be flexible to meet the needs of the people we support.

As we support a number of people, interests and personalities differ which will add variety into your shift. You are not required to drive as the service is located near a bus route.

We work with the people we support to promote independence and develop their skills by supporting and enabling individuals to achieve the things that are important to them. Our Service Manager is approachable, fair and will support you through your induction and career with Mencap.

You don't need to have experience as a Support worker but you do need to be:
