We are looking to employ a Personal Assistant to work with our 8-year-old son who lives at home with mum, dad and his two brothers. He is a happy boy who needs support with all aspects of daily living. He is happiest when somebody is talking to him or when he can hear the noise of the TV.
As he cannot do anything independently, the main part of this role is to support our son at home, getting him ready for school in a morning and getting him changed after school on an afternoon. You must be willing to change clothes, nappies and attend to his personal care.
A very important part of your role will be to ensure his safety at all times, especially when transferring to and from his wheelchair. Part of the role will also include giving our son medicine through a PEG, some experience in these areas would be preferred.
As the Personal Assistant you will work mainly alongside us and under our direction to meet our son’s needs. Previous experience of working with children is preferable but we are willing to train the right person.
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. You must also be able to respect our privacy.
