A highly intelligent young man and his family are looking for a part time Carer to join their team.

Due to a traumatic birth Jonathan has global brain damage. This has led to complex medical needs - he requires assistance with all areas of personal care, is tube fed and dependent on a ventilator during the night. Jonathan is unable to verbalise his requirements however he is an extremely eloquent 10 year old due to his use of a spelling board.

Jonathan has a wide range of interests including listening to music, baking and writing poetry. Jonathan has been campaigning for a better education system for children with access to learning difficulties and he has an active blog.

Jonathan is educated at home in the morning and attends the local primary school in the afternoon. Jonathan has two younger sisters who also attend the local primary school.

You would be part of a team working alongside Jonathan's mother, in a busy but brilliantly run household. You would act as a capable second pair of hands stepping in where required but also having the sense of when to step back and allow the family some quality time together.

They are looking for a reliable, adaptable, compassionate and fun person to join the established team. There is a requirement for occasional waking nights and trips away from the regular place of work.

They are open to the number of hours to be worked, however they do require someone to have the flexibility to work a mixture of some evenings, weekends and day shifts. There is also a requirement to drive a vehicle for work.

The hourly rate for this post is £13.50. There are additional supplements for Sunday and night time working.
