We are looking for support workers to join our Learning Disabilities team. You will be part of a flexible team working with adults who have learning disabilities and who use the Bede Centre in Bermondsey SE16.
Our person-centred approach enables people with learning disabilities to become as independent as possible, to make their own choices and be fully part of the community.

We work in partnership with other local charities, to provide as many social, volunteering and work opportunities as we can to the people that come to Bede.
We are looking for people who can work a variety of shifts, including full-time, part-time or flexible sessional cover. Our core service runs Monday-Friday, 9:30 am-3:30 pm. We also support other projects and social clubs in the late afternoons. You can see more information about the service at Bede Learning Disabilities service.
If you are interested in applying, please contact Gwen Green (020 7237 3881, email: email@example.com) for a job description. You do not have to have previous experience in this type of work to do it well: we are looking for people who are able to do the job as outlined, and who share Bede’s approach and values. We will provide full training and support to the right candidates.

Where we are
You’ll swiftly feel at home in our warm and friendly Bermondsey neighbourhood.
Our Bede office is located five minutes from our lively Bede Centre. There, our Learning Disabilities group create delicious, healthy lunches at our cafe and young people meet at our youth club.
The Centre overlooks Southwark Park, with its waterside Pavilion Cafe and art galleries. It’s also home to our allotment, where we grow fruit and vegetables. The Thames, fronted by historic inns, is a 15-minute walk away.
Bermondsey tube station on the Jubilee line, just ten minutes from our office, is connected to numerous bus routes. Together they provide swift access to central London, the City and Canary Wharf.
Looking forward to the future
Bede is on the threshold of an exciting new future. Construction work is set to begin on a brand new Bede Centre. Replacing our current building, it will bring together all our services in a purpose-designed, community hub. It marks yet another major step forward in our long and successful story. We invite you to become a part of it.
