Purpose of Job

We are looking for a driver who can work alongside another experienced PA to provide support to our 13 year old son.

You will be supporting him alongside one of his parents or another PA when out of the home.


Our son is a real outdoors person, he loves being out in all weathers, particularly rain, wind and snow!  He is very energetic and appreciates any opportunity he gets to run about.  We are always looking for new places to explore. He enjoys visits to the zoo and playing on his trampoline in the garden.

You will need to have a driving licence and access to a car to use for work.


An enhanced DBS will be required for this role, paid for by the employer.
