Info

ABOUT ME:

I am a 6-year-old girl with complex health needs, living at home with my parents and brother. I am an energetic young girl who loves playing on my mat with my toys, going to school and spending time with my family. As I have additional health needs, I need support at all times to keep me safe. I rely on my family, carers and my equipment to support me mobilise in my home environment and community. 

ABOUT YOU:

We are currently recruiting for a Care Assistant who can support me when I get home from school in the afternoon. I need someone to meet me off the bus, bring me into the house and take care of me until bedtime. This will include feeding me my dinner, playing with me or doing my physiotherapy exercises on the mat, giving me medicine, changing my nappy as required and getting me changed for bed. On some days when I have been particularly messy, I may need to be given a bath. 

The ideal candidate will be calm, reliable, and able to think on your feet. You will need to be part of my team, taking the lead from my Mum. 

Experience of working with children would be advantageous. Full training will be provided to meet my needs. 

Hours Available: 15 hours per week - 3 hours a day (3.45pm – 6.45pm), 5 days a week or weekend works. The family is flexible for the right person.

Rate of Pay: £12.00 per hour. 

Flexibility: Additional hours to cover holidays and sickness as required 

Training: An excellent training package is available to ensure you are trained to the highest standards. Working as part of the Solo Support Services organisation will also give you access to a supportive company who promote person centered practice. There is also an option of funding for staff to complete health and social care level 2 or 3 qualifications. 

If you feel this role is for you, we would love to hear from you and would love a new member to the Solo family! 

BENEFITS:

5.6 weeks holiday is awarded per year as standard (pro rata for part time positions). Employees are also able to join the Company Pension scheme after 3 months’ service, subject to the rules of the scheme, as well as our Cash Back Health Plan after completion of a successful probation period.
