Job advert:

Are you person centred? Do you like activities and holidays?

Then a role with Sense may be right for you. Based in Kings Norton, a stone's throw away from the park, we provide a range of care and support services for adults. We have been rated 'good' by the CQC and you would help us continually work to ensure our home remains person centred and maintains high standards. You will participate in a wide range of activities which suit the needs of the people we support; our main priority is to enable individuals live as independently as possible.

This is a full time role working 37.5 hours per week.

No two days will be the same: duties will include supporting with personal care, maximising daily living skills, and supporting trips and holidays.

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

It is essential that you have a valid UK driving licence and are willing to drive our car and small minibus.

For genuine occupational reasons we are looking to appoint a male candidate only (exemption under the Equality Act 2010 Part 1 Schedule 9).

In return for your hard work we will provide you with:
- £9.00 per hour
- Generous annual leave entitlement and the opportunity to buy and sell.
- Paid induction training and ongoing training and development.
- We will pay for your DBS check.
- Health and wellbeing support.
- Blue light discount card and extensive discount schemes.
- The opportunity to work in a large, diverse and successful charity where you can develop your skills, knowledge and career in a supportive and flexible environment.

Interested? To find out more, please email and we will call you for an informal chat. Or complete your application below.

We would recommend that you read the candidate guidelines and job description (found at the base of this advert) before applying.

As we say in our Equality and Diversity pledge, we want to ensure people are given the opportunity to realise their potential with us.
