Hi, I am a young adult male with a disability. I am looking for a Personal Assistant who is friendly and approachable with a good sense of humour. They must be reliable, trustworthy and punctual. It is important that an employee is aware of and sensitive to my needs. As a Personal Assistant is required to work one-to one, it is important that the employer and employee maintain an open and honest relationship.

 

The job involves my close supervision at all times and assisting me with everyday activities as well as with mobility (pushing my wheelchair) when we are out of the house as well as working with my guardians to help identify and access activities that I might enjoy.

 

Ideally you will either have some experience working with young adults or will be generally interested in working with younger people. You will also need to be comfortable working with someone who has epilepsy and complex needs. If you do not have experience with this that is ok as training will be provided. You do not have to be super strong to do the job well but general good health is important.

 

When you first start you will work alongside my parents (guardians) or one of my other Personal Assistants. They will help you get to know me and after a period of transition we will be able to work on our own!
