Job description

We are looking for someone who can help us develop and deliver our vision for the charity in the next decade.  Do you fit the bill?

This is a business development role which forms part of our management team (SMT).  As we are a small, member-led organisation, every role also involves working directly with our members.  Our work is holistic, person-centred and constantly strengthened by the voice of our members.

Mencap Liverpool & Sefton is a local charity based in the centre of Liverpool and the middle of Sefton.  We work with individuals who have a learning disability to ensure that they are valued equally, listened to and included.  Most of the people we work with have mild to moderate learning disability and often get no other form of support.  

In December 2018, Mencap Liverpool merged with South Sefton Mencap to form Mencap Liverpool & Sefton.  This has increased our area of operations and given us many new relationships and opportunities to develop.  We have a compelling vision to restore the building in Crosby, to create an inclusive place which enhances the mental wellbeing of our members (beneficiaries) and the local community.

And in December 2020, we will be celebrating the 70th Birthday of Mencap Liverpool!
