Hours: Up to 13 hours per week
Rates of pay: £10.00 per hour
Location: Fenham, Newcastle upon Tyne
We are looking to employ a Personal Assistant to work among our team of Personal Assistant’s to work with our three children aged between 9-12 years old. They are generally happy children but can be quite shy. All three of the children are non-verbal but can communicate in their own individual ways.
The main part of this role is to support with going out in the community and taking part in different activities, as well as social interaction at home. Due to the nature of the role, we would prefer car drivers with their own car, however this isn’t essential.
Our children all require constant care and supervision when out in the community, they will all require 1:1 support with their own Personal Assistant. A very important part of your role will be to ensure their safety at all times when you are outside of the family home.
The role will involve taking the children out in the community. They all like going to playgrounds and to parks. They may need support with toileting and feeding depending on the activity.
As the Personal Assistant you will work mainly alongside us and under our direction to meet our children’s needs. Previous experience of working with children is preferable, particularly children with special needs, but we are happy to consider applicants who do not have prior experience or knowledge of working with people with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
