Job Title: Personal Assistant

Location:  Newcastle upon Tyne (Kenton area)

Hours:  5 hours per week to be used flexibly

Rate of Pay:  £13.00 per hour


The purpose of this job is to support my son. Your job will be to provide him with the personal and social assistance that he needs. My son is a happy lively boy who really enjoys spending time in places where he can ‘people watch’, being out and about walking, going to parks to use the swings, trampolining, the ball pool in soft play centres and travelling on buses and metro’s.

My son can be nervous in unfamiliar places and may want to hold hands with the person supporting him.  My son can be very determined if there is something that he wants, wants to do, or doesn’t want to do and it can be challenging distracting him or persuading him against something. He also has no awareness of danger and will run, very quickly, towards something that catches his attention.

As my son’s Personal Assistant, you will work under my direction to meet his needs and will be accountable to me in all aspects of your work.  You must be reliable, be able to use your initiative and be able to work flexible hours.  You must also be able to respect our privacy and have an understanding of the need for confidentiality in all areas of your work.
