Job Description


We are a local family looking to build up a small care team to support our teenage son who has cerebral palsy.  We also have three younger children ranging in age from 10 to 2 years old and the role is to help us all lead as normal a life as possible.  Our eldest son is an active wheelchair user who loves music, swimming and all things outdoors. He usually attends regular trampoline and horse-riding groups and he dotes on his younger siblings and likes to keep up with them no matter what!

We are looking for individuals who are comfortable around all the children, working in our home but occasionally on our family holidays.  The role requires the need for organisation, planning and flexibility. You will be happy working in collaboration with other team members when required eg when all the children are together or supporting any of the children on a 1 to 1 basis when needed. You will be sensitive to working in our family home, respecting privacy and boundaries.

If you consider yourself energetic and committed with all round childcare experience and are able to support and use your initiative, we would love to hear from you. We are looking for full time contracted hours (35 hours minimum) but anyone looking to work part time would still be considered. 

A Driving Licence is essential. Shifts include 6am-9am and 3pm-9pm on school days, some sleep-in nights and longer shifts on Weekends and School Holidays. 

Full induction and relevant training will be provided.

Rates of pay: Monday to Friday - £12.00 per hour, Saturday and Sunday - £14.00 per hour

A DBS check will be pursued

We also have an Enhanced Position available within the team, which will need all of the above, but additional skills in organisation, planning, and leadership.

Rates of pay: Monday to Friday - £13.00 per hour, Saturday and Sunday- £15.00 per hour

We look forward to hearing from you!!
