About the role
Sense has a great opportunity to join our team as a Support Worker in Paston, Peterborough. This is a permanent full time role working 37.5 hours per week.
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 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.

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.
A full UK driving licence is an essential requirement for this role. You do not need to have your own vehicle as you would use the individuals vehicle.
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.
