Closing Date: 27/03/20
Job Purpose: I’m a married mum of two little girls, one of whom has some challenging behaviour. I have a chronic health condition and become easily fatigued, so I need to plan regular rest periods into my day. I require your support to fulfil my parenting role by assisting with domestic tasks, meal preparation and childcare to enable me to rest and our girls to be cared for and have fun.
Details: Your role will involve collecting our children from school using your own vehicle, for which child car seats will be provided. You will also support with after school activities, prepare meals and complete domestic tasks as required. Our younger daughter has additional social and emotional needs, which manifest themselves in aspects of challenging behaviour. You will be provided with full guidance on how to respond appropriately, and training can be arranged if necessary. A full induction will be provided into this role before you are expected to work independently with our children.
