Job Description

We are Sense, a high quality care service in Havant, who are passionate about supporting adults with complex needs, including Deafblindness, sensory losses and learning disabilities. 

We’re seeking to recruit a great new support worker on a full time waking night basis, 30 hours per week; someone with the right values and behaviours to work in our supported living care service – could this be you?

You will make the day to day the best it can possibly be for both you and the person you will support. The person you will support likes to try new things and access lots of community facilities where possible during the day. You will need to come up with ideas and solutions to make the most out of every night.

You don’t need to have previous experience in this field, nor do you need qualifications – we’re happy to work with you to help you become an excellent support worker. Above all we want someone that shares in our values. These are:

- We include, We collaborate, We find a way, We challenge, We celebrate.

Do you share these values? If so, read on…

The duties are varied and no two nights will be the same. The person you will support is an individual and treated as such. As a general guide, duties may include some support with personal care needs amongst others.
