Job Reference: WAK1439283AW3 Expires: 29th January 2018
I am currently recruiting for a Mandarin and English speaking Personal Assistant for my 7 year old autistic son. He is friendly and energetic, and enjoys puzzles and colouring in.
He can be challenging at times and routine is very important to him. He speaks little English meaning that he can be isolated from the community.
He is a picky eater and we would like to ensure our guidelines and instructions to be followed in order to maintain his current daily schedules.
The main purpose of the role is to try to integrate my son into the community and allow him to make friends and play with other children. This may be by attending certain community play groups or simply expanding his English vocabulary, allowing him to communicate with other children whilst at school.
The Personal Assistant will also undertake tasks within the home that may be both educational and creative, encouraging him to channel his energy into the right things.
The right candidate must be bi-lingual and speak both Mandarin and English in order to communicate effectively with our son and his family.
They will need to be patient and calm, and willing to follow our guidance on disciplining our son.
They will also be willing to undertake any necessary training surrounding autism or challenging behaviour in children, if we feel that this is required.
A good attention to detail is essential to ensure his safety at all times.
A full valid driving license is desirable (appropriate mileage and expenses will be paid)
Due to the nature of the work for which you are applying, this post is subject to a satisfactory DBS disclosure (costs will be covered)
To be discussed, negotiable
