We are a national Learning disability organisation and we support people with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour across 4 services in Wrexham.

We support some fantastic people to do some brilliant things from dog walking to hill walking, cycling to swimming and bingo and craft activities. This is the kind of job where no 2 days are the same and a job where the sense of achievement is shared. MacIntyre provide all training required to support people and we have part time and relief posts available throughout the year so perfect for fitting in around study. MacIntyre also have a talent management scheme where we help staff to reach their potential and there is always scope for career progression.
