We are looking for someone reliable to look after our son for 10 hours a week (possibly more in the hols) after school from 3.30pm Mon to Thursday and potentially either on a Friday afternoon from 1.30pm or a Saturday morning.
Our son is autistic, deaf, has learning disabilities and is non-verbal. Our son is a lovely boy but needs constant supervision and is very sensory. He is very active and likes to go out and about e.g. walks, playground, buses, swimming etc – again with constant supervision. He has a few behaviours which need to be managed so ideally we would be looking for someone with previous experience. He needs limited help with his toileting.
Finally he wears hearing aids but mainly uses limited BSL sign to communicate – experience of sign and deaf awareness would be a plus.
We are willing to consider this role as a job share if you cannot commit to 10 hours per week but please make this clear on your application.
We live in Edinburgh in Marchmont EH9 and would require references and a PVG is a requirement (willing to pay this expense for the right person) – looking for immediate start.
£12-£15 per hour dependent on experience.
