About the role

Sense has a great opportunity to join our team as a Part Time Support Worker in Havant. We have a number of permanent, part time roles available working up to 30 hours per week - just let us know what you are looking for.  

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.

Your role will entail supporting a young individual in their own home, supporting them accessing lots of community facilities. You will require a positive, flexible and can do attitude to enable them to try new opportunities. You will join a well established fantastic team, that are supportive to new team members enabling you to grow and develop within your role. Full communication is used and this role really gives you an opportunity to develop new or use existing skills.

About you 

Experience is not necessarily required for this role as we are able to support you and provide you with an excellent induction. 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. However experience in supporting another person either in a professional role or as an expert by experience, voluntary roles, supporting a family member or a friend would be beneficial.

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.
