About the role

Sense has an exciting opportunity for passionate and dedicated individuals to join our team as a Specialist Support Worker, based at one of our services in Louth. We have a number of flexible, full and part time roles available, working up to 37.5 hours per week across a variety of shift patterns. Let us know what works for you! 

As a Specialist Support Worker you will support and enable people to live the life they choose: to make choices, to express themselves and live as independently as possible. Your patient support and encouragement will assist individuals to run their own lives as much as possible – helping with personal care, supporting someone to rustle up some breakfast, do the weekly shop, engage with Sense activities, or visit a local café.

We have vacancies available across Louth:

Louth Accommodation Services: Our purpose built residential service provides accommodation to people with multi-sensory impairment and complex medical conditions. We support individuals to live as independently as possible, enable them to take part in new experiences and to get involved with the local community.

Sense Centre Louth: Our day centre is a place where the people we support can engage in a range of social activities, to develop their communication skills, express themselves meet new people and learn new life skills.

We also have casual (bank) opportunities in this area attracting an hourly rate of £7.83.

About you 

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; we will however provide you with a rota in advance so you can plan your life accordingly.

About us

For everyone living with complex disabilities. For everyone who is deafblind. Sense is here to help people communicate and experience the world. We believe that no one, no matter how complex their disabilities, should be isolated, left out, or unable to fulfil their potential.

Working as a Support Worker at Sense can be incredibly rewarding; we offer the opportunity to work in a large, diverse and successful charity where people can develop their skills, knowledge and careers in a supportive and flexible environment. In addition, we have excellent training and development, the opportunity for you to join our Group Personal Pension scheme and a generous annual leave entitlement.

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.
