I'm looking for a Personal Assistant for my 17 year old son who has profound medical and complex special needs.  It will be a regular position for 3 to 4 hours, initially one afternoon/evening a week (from 3.30pm to 6.30pm), but with the possibility of extending to two or three evenings a week, with some additional hours required on evenings and weekends, during school holidays and to cover holiday and illness, as available, working as part of a small team.  

The role is for a PA/Carer, ideally with experience of special needs, essentially experienced with children. I am looking for someone with a ‘zest for life’ drive, energy and compassion, who would enjoy spending time with my son, his two younger siblings and be a part of our extended family.

 

This is a ‘befriending’ role and is ideally suited to someone who has specific interests in,or is already working with young people and/or special needs, or indeed the medical profession.


The position will offer specialist professional training (with a number of key areas including; moving/handling/hoisting, intimate care/convene and gastrostomy care/feeding) and initially the role will be supported.  Once confident in the position, independent care will be required.


The successful individual will be of a friendly, helpful nature, with a good sense of humour and the ability to use their own initiative in a ridiculously busy and slightly mad household.  GSOH and ‘prepared for anything’ is a bit of a deal-breaker!


The ideal candidate will be local to Horsforth or within an easy commute and (ideally) have their own transport (though not essential).

 

We have an affectionate Borodor (Border collie/Labrador cross) so only dog-friendly people need apply.

Further details and a full Job Specification can be given on request.

If you are interested, or know of someone who would be suitable for this role please get in touch.
