JOB TITLE Personal Assistant
HOURS 3 per week flexible to be arranged between us.
Rate of Pay £9.43
Probation period 3 months
LOCATION Wider community, time away from family home
PURPOSE OF JOB
We are a family of eight and as such have a very busy and bustling household. Our son (14) has a diagnosis of Autism. He is very bright and has a fantastic sense of humour but requires support with social skills. He is physically able and requires no assistance with personal care.
We are looking for someone who is flexible and happy to help our son experience different social experiences away from our home so as to give him some much needed time away from his siblings. Our son enjoys sports, Pokemon Go, and in normal times trips to the cinema, ice cream parlour and bowling.
You will be required to work unsupervised once you are settled in the role and are encouraged to use your initiative to suggest activities for our son when and where appropriate.
My PA will be directed by and accountable to me in all aspects of their work. He/She must always ask what I require and not make assumptions about any aspect of the assistance I need or how it should be carried out. He/She should not carry out tasks unless we have first discussed it.
My PA will be required to do the following tasks and may be asked to carry out other tasks of a similar nature:
- Support our son to access the activities he enjoys both in the community and at home
- Ensure he is safe and secure at all times
- Encourage him to try new activities as and when appropriate
Any other request that I may reasonably make
