About the role

Sense has a great opportunity for passionate and dedicated individuals to join our team as a Support Worker at our residential service in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. We have a number of flexible, part and full time roles available working up to 37.5 hours per week, across both day and night shift patterns.

As a 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.

Being a Sense Support Worker can be the springboard to your future career - and to all sorts of opportunities and management roles.
