Hi, I am a bouncy 15 year old who loves cars. Would you like to join me in my quest to look at and photograph as many cars as possible? I don’t need any personal care but may forget to pick up my hat when distracted. If you would like to be my partner in crime, my favourite thing to do is car shopping. I also enjoy an occasional trip to the cinema, going to new places, McDonalds, Bluebell Railway and generally having fun.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take me out, preferable to car showrooms, where I can take as many pictures as possible whilst sitting in every seat of every car they have. I also enjoy going to coffee shops for a drink and a quick bite to eat (chocolate only).

I will need you to be able to drive (my mum does insist on living out in the sticks) with a full clean driving license. I would need to come in your car so the more exotic it is the better, but lets face it, a Nissan Micra or Suzuki Swift will get me there as well. You will also need to keep up with me and have eyes in the back of your head.

You would be able to go free to most attractions as a Carer, other expenses would have to be reimbursed with prior agreement.

Duties include:

  • Other relevant duties as required
  • Transportation
  • Companionship

Candidate qualities:

  • Respectful of the employer's privacy and confidentiality
  • Reliable with good timekeeping

  • Patient and possess excellent interpersonal skills
  • Honest and cheerful
  • Creative
  • Able to speak and read English to a reasonable standard
