Rate of pay: £11ph
Hours of work: Tuesday or Thursday 9.30am to 2.30pm
Our client is looking for a support worker/companion for her daughter.
The successful candidate will have an understanding that Sally’s (not her real name) mind works differently and the impact this can have on her every day life.
They will need to be prepared for a substantial induction period where they will need to get to know Sally and form their own relationship with her. Her parents will give them guidance but they will be expected to support Sally through their gained knowledge of her. It is vital that you can think on your feet.
They will need to have an open mind and able to understand both verbal and non verbal communication.
Sally needs a non-smoker to work with her and ideally someone who drives and has access to a car.
The main tasks will be support with preparation and cooking of meals and support/companionship going out and about in the community.
Sally has a lovely sense of humour, she can also become anxious so you will need to be able to be sensitive to this.
If this sounds like the role for you or you want more information please get in touch by email or phone 01202 723301 (office hours 9am-2pm Mon-Fri)
