Langdon was founded in 1992 by four parents of children with learning difficulties who found there were no organisations that enabled young adults with similar needs to lead an independent life. From those early beginnings, Langdon's services have steadily grown and we now help over 100 young Jewish people, providing education, supported living and employment services. We are proud that our members lead independent lives that, without Langdon, their parents could only dream about.

We are currently looking for Support Workers. The role will be based in Edgware, however travel may be required between local properties.

Support Workers will be expected to work flexible hours which will involve working early and late shifts, including sleep in's, weekends and bank holidays in accordance with client need. 

Support Workers will be required to work individually and as part of a team to support and enable individuals to live as independently as possible by assisting individuals to develop new and existing skills. They will also be responsible for working with our employment team to facilitate employment opportunities and assisting and supporting individuals to enjoy an active social life.
Support Workers should enable Individuals to form relationships and wider social networks, promote and support lifelong learning opportunities and support individuals to observe Jewish culture.
