I am a young lady living at home with my parents in Guilsfield. I have profound learning difficulties and I am autistic. At times this can make my behaviour very challenging. I also have some physical and visual problems, but I do love to have a lot of fun!
PURPOSE OF THE JOB
To enable me to lead as normal a life as possible, safely. To help me develop my learning, skills and broaden my horizons. To also help me in participating and enjoying activities with my Personal Assistants. I need support to keep my environment clean and safe.
Although I currently live with my parents, there is a plan in the future that I will live independently in my own home with 24 hour support. If this is the case, overnight work would also be available.
HOURS OF WORK
Contracted hours of an average 15 per week. This would be a permanent post with guaranteed hours.
Week 1 20 hours
Week 2 10 hours
This will be in the form of 10 hour shifts, working 2-1 with another member of the team, 10am – 6pm, but being flexible with these hours would be desirable on occasions.
It is anticipated that the working days will be a Thursday every week plus a Friday every other week, though, again this may be flexible, by mutual agreement.
There will also be opportunities to work extra hours on Saturdays/Sundays potentially also maybe providing 24 hour support, which can be discussed further at interview. Understandably, this does not suit everybody, so please don’t think that this is essential when applying for the advertised permanent core hours. We would still like to see your application!
RATE OF PAY
Start rate £8.75 rising to £9.45 per hour, after successful completion of a 3 month probationary period
