Purpose of Job
I am looking to employ a Personal Assistant to work with my 7-year-old son. He is a friendly boy who is very active and loves being outside. He likes to play on the trampoline, going to the park, he loves swimming, bowling, and visiting soft play.
He has learning and communication difficulties, and Autism. He therefore requires constant supervision whilst out and about in the community.
The main part of this role is to support and supervise my son when he wants to access the local community, as well as social interaction at home. He has minimum understanding and hates loud noise, so it is important to keep him focussed to avoid any distress, which can be triggered in many ways. Experience of working with Autistic children would be preferred.
A very important part of your role will be to ensure his safety. He has no awareness of danger, so you must take extra care when you are out in the community.
My son likes to be around happy enthusiastic people so you should be confident and outgoing. As the Personal Assistant you will work under my direction to meet my son’s needs.
Driver with a clean licence and own vehicle is essential.
Mileage will be reimbursed.
Post subject to references and DBS check.
Closing date: 7 December 2023
At the time of starting their employment, the successful candidate must have permission to work in the U.K.
