Hours: Flexible hours to be discussed, possible weekends evenings and overnights
Rate of Pay: £11.54
I am looking for honest, fun, caring, friendly people to be my Personal Assistant…
I am a typical 16-year-old, living in Selby with my Mum, sister, and dog. I love days out, going to theme parks and out and about. I love swimming and playing with balls. I like to spend my time with people who like to play and act silly. I love lights, music, disco’s and going to the seaside.
People who know me say that I am great to be around, but I know my own mind and can be stubborn, lashing out sometimes when people don’t understand me. But once you get to know how I communicate and learn my cues, this will lessen. I have complex needs and require lots of help and support with everyday tasks. I can walk but do use a wheelchair at times when I am tired. It is important that I find people who want to get to know me and anticipate my needs. I have severe developmental delay and receive my medication through a gastrostomy button.
If you can offer the following, then I would love to meet you so we can see if you could be my Personal Assistant.
- Have a clean driving licence
- Are mature and experienced with working with children
- Are a dog lover (my dog sleeps in my bedroom)
- Are reliable and flexible as hours will vary, including evenings, weekends, school holidays and occasional cover for sickness and annual leave
Closing Date: 30th September 2021
(If you can apply before this date that would be great).
A clear enhanced DBS will be required for this role (paid for by the employer) along with two references.
The successful candidate will have had or be willing to have their Covid-19 vaccinations.
