Specialist Support Workers - Part Time & Flexible Working Available
About the role
Sense has a great opportunity for passionate and dedicated individuals to join our team as a Specialist Support Worker in Accrington. We have a number of flexible, permanent, full and part time roles available working up to 37.5 hours per week. These roles are offered across a variety of shift patterns including mornings, afternoons, evenings, weekends, waking nights, and community services.
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 or visit a local café.
Sense also 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; we will however provide you with a rota in advance so you can plan your life accordingly.
A full UK driving licence is an essential requirement for this role.
For everyone living with complex disabilities. For everyone who is deafblind. Sense is here to help people communicate and experience the world.
