I am looking for a lovely, kind, reliable and energetic PA for my son who is 15 and has Autism. He loves being outside so you would need to love going for long walks or doing activities! He is a lovely young boy who is usually happy and smiley.

I am looking for someone to take him out for days in the school holidays and possibly overnight respite. He attends Jigsaw school so knowledge of ABA would be great but not essential and being kind and caring is far more valuable to me.

It is essential that you understand Autism, preferably someone who has previously cared for or worked within a SN setting.

Duties include:

  • Other relevant duties as required
  • Cooking
  • Transportation
  • Companionship

Candidate qualities:

  • Respectful of the employer's privacy and confidentiality
  • Reliable with good timekeeping
  • Able to both follow instructions and work on own initiative
  • Hygienic, tidy and well organised
  • Fit and healthy to undertake the required duties
  • Patient and possess excellent interpersonal skills
  • Honest and cheerful
  • Creative
  • Able to speak and read English to a reasonable standard
  • Able to always work to high standards of health & safety
