Personal Assistant – KCONCL

Job title: Personal Assistant (PA)

Location: Newcastle upon Tyne (Kenton area)

Hours of work:

10 hours per week – school holidays only.

Hours to be used flexibly.

Rate of pay: £13.50 per hour

 

I’m looking for a Personal Assistant for my 10 year old son, Kian, who’s very sociable and friendly. He’s very energetic and a bit of a thrill seeker too, so anyone working with him will need to match his personality. He loves trying and experiencing new things, so this is where I hope a PA can support me, to ensure he gets maximum enjoyment in his life.

He loves to dance to music, and go on big fun fair rides, as well as being a bit of a foodie, so eating out is always welcomed.

He likes having days out at the park and the beach, as well as going swimming and to soft plays. We often use public transport on days out, which adds to the adventure for him.

Kian requires supervision at all times, as he is not aware of dangers around him. He has Down’s Syndrome with other additional needs, including hearing and visual impairments, and some mobility and respiratory issues. His behaviour can be challenging if he becomes frustrated. Any PA will spend time learning from me, to understand how best to support my son.
