RP- MS-26AUG19 - Male Personal Assistants for young man with autism and learning disabilities

Job reference: RP- MS-26AUG19
Closing date: 26 August, 2019

Experienced Male Personal Assistants are required to support a young man with autism and learning disabilities near Streatham Common.

A good awareness and understanding of autism is essential and an ability to follow behavioural guidelines, set firm boundaries and work in a consistent manner is vital to ensuring the client receives the care and support he requires in order to lead a healthy and independent life.

Due to the nature of the role you must be confident in managing challenging behaviour and be physically fit in order to keep up with an active young man who enjoys going out and about in the local community in all weathers, including riding his bike, going swimming and skateboarding amongst other activities.

The job would suit someone who lives locally as shifts may be available at short notice and it would be beneficial to have a good knowledge of the local area as the client enjoys going out and about and accessing the community on a daily basis.

The client requires support 24/7 and various shifts and hours will be available, up to 40 hours a week. You will be working as part of a team of Personal Assistants, often alongside other carers on a 2:1 basis. Therefore good clear communication is important as well as an ability to work as part of a team and be flexible in covering other shifts as and when required.

Daytime working hours will be paid at £10.55 per hour. Sleep-in/night rate is yet to be confirmed.
