Hi there,

Are you a people person....

..... reliable.....

.... with a good sense of fun....

.... with sound common sense....

.... a non-smoker.....

... able to care for someone with physical and learning disabilities needing total care....

And can you drive?

... then look no further!

I am a sociable guy who likes to be with people

AND I have a great job waiting for you as part of my team!

I have cerebral palsy which affects my speech and my ability to do anything. That and my epilepsy mean that I am unable, however much I try, to do anything for myself; in fact I need help with everything including intimate personal care.

But this doesn’t stop me from pursuing my interests which are gardening, Christian activities, working with animals, swimming, drama, music, arts and crafts and horse riding (for which you need to be 5’8”).

In fact I am quite busy at home and in the community. At home I also need you to help with my exercises to keep me able to move.

Would you like to have fun working with me? Giving care and support to one individual you get to know them well. You are able to enjoy activities in the home and community while being paid! Learn to be an enabler!

The bonus is you get training on the job and later get to go to further training!

If you would like to work with me for about 16 hours or for a full 30+ hours per week; possibly be available for sleepovers - I would pay you £10.20ph initially and provide a pension. The hourly rate goes up to £12.10ph when you are able to do all of my care reliably.

Sleepovers are paid at £83.70 per night.

When you are a permanent team member I include enhanced sick pay.

You would also get 42 days paid holiday per year.
