Job title: Personal Assistant – (Care)
Location: Stambourne near Finchingfield (CO9)
Rate of pay: Negotiable – to be discussed at interview.
Hours: Flexible hours available – to include alternate weekends.
Personal Assistant needed to support a young man living with learning and physical disabilities.
My son is a sociable and happy person who loves be around people. He has communication difficulties but can understand you and let you know his wishes. He needs help with his personal care including at mealtimes. He enjoys swimming and outdoor activities as well as cooking and needs support to access the community as he is a wheelchair user.
I am also living with a physical disability and require some help with my personal care. The role would include duties such as cooking and household tasks.
You would be working as part of a small team who support us in our own home. We live in a rural location so use of a car is essential.
My son has a wheelchair accessible vehicle (people carrier) so the ability to use this for his outings would be an advantage but not essential.
Breaks to be discussed, if invited to interview.
Additional hours may become available, so we are looking for someone who is flexible.
Experience or qualifications:
Experience working in a similar role would be an advantage but not essential, training will be provided.
Any offers are subject to a DBS check, receipt of two references and checking the legal right to live and work in the UK.
As some personal care is involved, I would feel more comfortable with a female carer. This advert complies with the Sex Discrimination Act (1975) Section 7 (2b).
