Sense have a great opportunity for passionate and dedicated individuals to join our team as a Support Worker in Stockport on a casual (bank) basis. Our casual arrangements are very flexible and can fit around your life. We are looking for people with a wide range of availability including days, evenings and weekends.
We are looking for applicants to support children and young people (7-18 years) with sensory impairments to access the local community.

Sense supports people to take part in some of our amazing arts and wellbeing activities – from dance to music making, swimming to rock climbing.
Experience is not necessarily required for this role as we are able to support you and provide you with an excellent induction. However, it is really important that you are able to demonstrate the right values and behaviours to enable you to make a difference to people’s lives.
Flexibility is needed as working times do vary and will include evenings, weekends and sleep-ins.
Our selection process aims to make sure that the role is right for you and you are right for us. It involves completing an online application form, taking part in a value based interview/assessment process and visiting one of our services.
