Nottingham, East Midlands
Are you a cool, enthusiastic, energetic and friendly person who has a good understanding of supporting children and young people? Do you think you have what it takes to support and entertain our family of 4 boys who all love to game and range in age from 7 years old to 16 years old.
We would like someone who will help us to engage with the local community by supporting us to go to events and on days out such as ‘Fun Station’ and swimming. As well as this we all enjoy gaming with our current favourites being Fortnight and Fifa. We all require some 1:1 time so it’s important you are adaptable to all of our needs and personalities. We live with our mum and dad, other siblings and 4 dogs so our staff will need to get on well with our whole family. Our mum and dad know lots about us and will be available to give you advice on how best to support us.
We are looking for a like minded person to join our team.
Could you be the person to support?
The ideal candidate will be flexible, have a positive and caring nature with a cheerful personality and good communication skills. It’s also important that we can all have ‘banter’ with our staff so be prepared! Experience in working with children and young people is desired, but not essential as full training will be given to the right candidates.
