Purpose of Job

We have 2 children aged 9 and 12.  Our eldest has autistic spectrum disorder. The main purpose of this job is to work alongside us caring for and supporting our eldest son whilst outside of the home.  You may also need to, separately, supervise and support our younger son while we are helping our older son.


Our son is a happy, affectionate boy who is verbal but struggles to understand social norms and rules of conversation.  He also has a stammer and needs to be given time and space to get his view across.

Tuesday 6-9; Gaming social and babysitting at home (to allow parents to get a short respite)

Thursday 4:30-6:30; Trampolining

Friday 4-6

Saturday 4 hrs afternoon (art garden or Tim Lamb Centre) or occasionally on a morning to a national trust property


During school holidays you will continue to work 4 hours on Saturdays and 2 hours on Thursday evening, but will work two afternoons during the week for three hours each to support us on trips outside of the house.  You will not work Friday evenings during school holidays.


We additionally, have budget for 12 evening babysitting sessions a year, usually 8pm – midnight but these are flexible and can be arranged on a month- by -month basis.


Ewan dislikes public transport which is to be avoided along with busy city and town centres therefore a car driver is required. 

We have a car, and we are prepared to add the PA to our insurance to enable them to use it if they do not own their own vehicle
