About the role
Sense has a great opportunity for passionate and dedicated individuals to join our team as Specialist Support Workers in Brent, London. We have a number of flexible, full and part time roles available working up to 37.5 hours per week on both day and night shift patterns.
As a Support Worker you will support and enable people with sensory, learning, and mental health needs 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.
