Job title:                              Personal Assistant x2

 

Hours:                                 3 hours per week – timings to be discussed

                                            

Rates of pay:                       £10.50 per hour

I am looking to employ two Personal Assistant’s to work with my 13-year-old son. He has Down’s Syndrome and severe learning difficulties. He is a lovely boy who is happiest when he is around pets, especially cats.

 

He loves anything to do with animals so if you’re an animal lover, you could be a perfect fit. He loves going to pet shops or to the park and playing on the swing. He also loves soft foods like ice cream and custard.

 

The main part of this role is to support with going out and about and taking part in different activities over the weekend, hours are flexible and can be discussed at interview stage. Due to the nature of the role, I would prefer a car driver with their own car as he can sometimes find public transport overwhelming. 

 

A very important part of your role will be to ensure his safety at all times.  He has no awareness of danger and if you are outside, he can run off, so you must have a good level of general health to keep up with him.

 

It would be ideal if you had experience working with children with learning difficulties and challenging behaviour so you know how to respond to his needs
