About the role

We have a great opportunity for individuals to join our team as a Support Worker in Sheffield on a Relief (bank) basis. 

Our relief / bank arrangements are very flexible and can fit around your life. We are looking for people with a wide range of availability and have shifts available in the days, nights, evenings and weekends.

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.

About you

Experience is not necessarily required for this role as we are able to support you and provide you with excellent training. 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.

Our selection process aims to make sure that the role is right for you and you are right for us.  It involves completing an online application form, and taking part in a values based interview process.
