Description

We are urgently seeking a caring, reliable, inspiring individual to provide live-in care for our daughter to enable her to live independently away from home for the first time (in a fantastic 2 bed flat in Morningside, Edinburgh). You will provide care mornings and after school/evenings, although you should be available at mutually agreed times during the week to cover free periods. This post would suit someone fun but responsible, who enjoys socialising and who would be able to provide high quality, professional care to our daughter in a friendly, relaxed way. Most weekdays (term time) in the daytime will be free, so this post may suit someone studying part-time, and at least alternate weekends will be off, potentially with the flat to yourself. A part-time carer will provide relief care so that you have adequate time/days off.

Experience of helping children or young people with physical disabilities is highly desirable but not essential. Willingness to learn and put our daughter’s needs first is essential. You must either be a member of the PVG scheme already, or willing to join. Driving licence and access to a vehicle ideal, but not essential.

This post comes with your own large bedroom in an amazing flat. In addition, you will receive pay (negotiable) and expenses (for council tax, bills, food and other living costs). Pay and expenses are negotiable depending on your experience and circumstances.

Applications are welcome from people who have a genuine desire to help our daughter have the best life possible and who are willing to be a carer and flatmate to her to enable her to have a very positive experience of living away from home. We are hoping to interview applicants the week beginning 16th October with a view to the post commencing soon after. Please apply in the first instance by submitting your CV or by giving full details of yourself, including education, qualifications and experience. Many thanks.

Applications should quote reference MC WN and be sent in via email.
