Job Reference: F0263 Expires: 22nd January 2018
We are looking for a caring, patient and re-assuring individual to support a young lady in her 20’s living in the Mold area.
The young lady is on the autistic spectrum and has some mental health challenges due to her disability.
She is a happy individual who enjoys music, animals (has previously been horse riding) and shopping. She is also a very visual person and likes going to art galleries and museums.
The role is to support the young lady to attend a college in Wrexham from her home in Mold four days per week. She will need support with her morning routine which will include prompting her to get up and assistance with washing and dressing.
You will accompany the young lady to and from college in a taxi.
For two of the days, you will support her with an activity after college – this may include activities such as going to MacDonald’s for tea, shopping etc.
The role is to encourage, support and enable the young lady to increase her independence in a person centred approach; this will take time and patience to enable the young lady to gradually build her confidence, trust and feel safe with the successful candidate.
The right individual will be someone who is patient, have a caring disposition and be encouraging but not overbearing. They will need to be able to offer reassurance and have a calming nature.
Previous experience in a similar role would be an advantage but not essential.
Car owner and full valid driving license preferred (business insurance required) but not essential.
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).
In return you will have the opportunity to enjoy a rewarding job and keep up to date with your professional development as any necessary training can be provided.
0 – 14 hours per week during term times Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
2 days per week 8.45am - 10.30am and 2pm – 3pm
2 days per week 8.45am - 10.30am and 2pm – 5pm
It will be mutually agreed between the employer and employee which days will be the 5pm finish.
Support may be occasionally required for evenings/weekends but the employer will provide the employee notice of this.
More flexibility will be required during school holidays to provide support to access activities with the local community.
