Part of this role will be to take A out to places where he can engage his love of movie making and also to join in with his love of arcade games. A loves watching YouTube so you can look forward to sharing a few laughs whilst keeping him company. Visits out to encourage A’s love of photography will also be part of the role.

You will be working on a 121 basis, however. a member of the family is usually around to assist with his care when breaks are needed.

You will receive full training in all aspects of our client’s care and be fully supported by his Case Manager and the wider team.

About You:

Due to A’s limitations, he can understandably get frustrated so a calm, supportive nature is a must for this role to focus him back on an activity and manage his frustration.

You will have had some care experience but more importantly is your aptitude to care. You will have an engaging, client-centred approach following A’s care plan and helping him achieve his developmental and rehabilitation goals. A is fed via PEG so experience in this area would be advantageous.

You will be kind, positive and reliable and able to build a relationship of trust with our client.

You will enjoy taking the client out on activities and for this reason, you would need to be a driver who can drive a manual van, hold a full UK driving license and be over 21 (for insurance purposes).
