About the role

We have a great opportunity for passionate and dedicated individuals to join our team as a Support Worker at our Sense Centre in Rothwell, Northamptonshire. We have the opportunity to work 21 or 14 hours per week. These hours will be on a Tuesday, Thursday or Friday between 9:15am and 4:15pm.

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.

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.

Sense Centre Rothwell is located on the A14 between Rothwell and Kettering. The centre is not located on a public transport route, so applicants must have alternative means of travel.
