We're on the hunt for a PA to have fun with our sociable and lively 8-year-old son.

He is very interested in planes, checking out level crossing barriers, and geography. We need someone to take him on fun outings such as trips to the park, beach, trampolining, drumming, and more.

We need someone to explain, encourage and support our son in activities so he can get the most from them safely.

Sometimes, when anxiety strikes our son can be overwhelmed, so we're looking for someone understanding and gentle to make those moments easier.

Training will be given around specific approaches we use with our son.

Submit your application today if you're enthusiastic about interacting with children, empathising with their unique requirements, and providing much-needed respite to weary parents.
