There will be the opportunity to work additional sleeping-in night shifts (weekdays or weekends) once purpose built carers accommodation is complete in the next 1-2 months.
Full support with all personal care including hoisting for transfers.
Enthusiasm about taking him outdoors and to activities he enjoys is essential.
Previous experience of working with people with disabilities is desirable (but not essential), particular knowledge of visual impairment, epilepsy or autism.
You need to be enthusiastic, physically fit, patient, caring, happy working as part of a team and intending for this to be a long term post.
You will receive excellent training, support and supervision.
Day shifts £10 per hour increasing after 1 year, with paid annual leave.
Sleeping night shifts 8pm-8am, £8 per hour.
Please email a CV, any questions and indicate what hours you would preferably like to work to email@example.com
We have a lovely team and would like to recruit the right people to expand this.
