How to apply
Sense are looking for a reliable and motivated person to join our professional team as a Senior Support Worker (Communicator Guide) in Old Swan & Bootle, Liverpool.
Title: Female Senior Support Worker (Communicator Guide)
Hours: 4 hours per week, annualised
Location: Old Swan and Bootle, Liverpool
Contract type: Permanent
Salary: £9.08 per hour
About the role
This is a part time role working 4 hours per week in a community setting.
Communicator Guides offer support to people who have developed sight and hearing impairments, often as they get older; you will support the individual to do the things they want to do - not to do things for them. You’ll be there to act as the eyes and ears of the individual – to make sure that communication is clear and that they are able to move around safely. The support you provide may be in someone’s home, their local community or work setting.
We would like to hear from you if you have experience of working with vulnerable people, and ideally have experience of working with people with a sensory impairment. A willingness to develop your skills in all communication methods is an essential part of this role. You will need to be able to creatively solve problems that may arise using a person-centred approach and ideally have experience of using person-centred planning tools.
For everyone living with complex disabilities. For everyone who is deafblind. Sense is here to help people communicate and experience the world.
We believe that no one, no matter how complex their disabilities, should be isolated, left out, or unable to fulfil their potential.
Closing date: Monday 10 June 2019
Interview date: As applications are received
To start: To be discussed at interview
