I am the Lead Coordinator, Employer Engagement for Mencap in Southwark a role that started at the end of 2016. I have been in this team just over year starting as an Employment Coordinator. My role is to develop relationships with employers (preferably local SMEs, but I’m not fussy!) that will generate paid jobs for the people we support.
I have nearly always worked in roles that support others and I would say I get my joy from using all kinds of communication to create connections.
