We are looking to employ a Personal Assistant to work with our 8-year-old son who has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy. He is a happy and engaging boy who is becoming more emotionally aware and self-aware.
He likes going to football classes on a Saturday morning and enjoys the cinema. When eating out he likes to have cheesecake or custard.
The main part of this role is to support our son to take part in different activities, as well as social interaction at home. Some hours would be on a Saturday to take our son to his football class. Due to the nature of the role, we require a car driver with a vehicle suitable for a wheelchair.
Some moving and handling will be involved when transferring to his wheelchair.
We are looking for somebody who is enthusiastic and pro-active in their work, reliable, punctual and prepared for some flexibility in their working hours. We would ideally like someone who can communicate in Bengali and has an understanding of the Muslim faith.
There are no formal qualifications needed to do this job. However, we would prefer someone who has experience working with children with disabilities. The tasks and types of assistance involved can be learned through the Personal Assistant working with us.
