Job title: Personal Assistant

Location: Newcastle upon Tyne (NE5)

Hours of work: 12 hours per week (school holidays only).

My name is Elle, I am looking for a personal assistant to work with my son Shaye. Shaye is 13 years old and is a very happy and social little boy. He has autism and has difficulties with communication. He is always full of energy and loves to cuddle and be around other people. Shaye lives in the family home with me and his older brother. He has a close relationship with his brother, and they like to spend time together.

The main purpose of the role is to go out and about with Shaye to enable and support him to take part in different social activities, this includes swimming, going to soft play and going to the park. Shaye loves outdoor spaces and being in the fresh air. One of his favourite places to visit is Ponteland Park. He also enjoys going to the airport and watching the aeroplanes taking off and landing.

We would like a Personal Assistant to work hours in the school holidays to provide some relief for me so I can get on with housework etc. Hours can be worked around your commitments, and we can be flexible.

We would prefer a driver with their own car however this isn’t essential as Shaye enjoys being on public transport.

A driver with own vehicle and clean licence is preferred but non-drivers may apply.
