Job Description

We are actively looking to recruit an experienced Female Personal Assistant to support a Young Lady living in the Kirkby area of Knowsley.

Ideally you will be experienced or have a background in working/ supporting a person with a diagnosis of Autism, coupled with a strong awareness of the challenges this can present.

The young lady predominantly uses a Smart Pad, more so with strangers and initial introductions to new people or new places until a trusting relationship is formed.

The Smart Pad effectively converts client’s messages to speech as client has diagnosis of Selected Mutism.

We are seeking a calm, patient and reliable person, with a genuine interest in supporting a friendly young lady, requiring additional support.

Our client does not access the community independently and never goes out unaccompanied.

Client lives in family home with dad and would like 12 hours support each week to pursue her interests in Beauty, Hairdressing plus her love of animals, especially Cats.

You will be experienced with a clear understanding of the nature of support required, with the ability to support Client in situations that may be a challenge to her.

We ask that you are a Car Driver with own Transport.

This support will also effectively allow dad some respite to carry out his commitments around managing family home and personal health.

Hours are up to 12 per week to be agreed with Client and dad around existing commitments.
