We require a person, or team of people to help with the care of our son. He has a diagnosis of Autism with a severe learning disability, and therefore needs to be cared for in our home.

Our son is 4 years old and attends a local special school. He is a very happy and affectionate boy, but has some additional needs especially around familiar environments and routines. He is currently non verbal, but communicates using PECS.

We also have two other children, and both parents work full time.

Hours:

  • 3 x hours per week (during term time) – this will usually be on a Sunday afternoon. This is respite utilising Direct Payments.
  • School holidays
  • Possibly occasional weekend evenings
  • Possibly occasional overnight stays

We will have a list of hours available, and our plan is that the PA, or PAs will self-select the hours they are willing to fulfil (i.e. there is no requirement for one PA to fulfil all the hours listed). We think this role may suit someone who currently works in term time and is looking to supplement their income.

Pay:

  • £10.80 per hour on weekdays
  • £11.80 per hour on weekends

Work duties:

  • General supervision
  • Personal care
  • Meal preparation
  • Outings e.g. to the park (a car is available to use)
  • Activities in the home (e.g. painting, playing in the garden, etc).

Requirements:

  • Previous experience of this type of role not required
  • Patience
  • Caring attitude
  • Good sense of humour!
  • Flexible, reliable and honest

Other requirements:

  • Enhanced DBS check (not a problem if this is not currently in place – we can organise)
  • Insurance (again, we can organise this if not already in place)

Location:

  • Hove
