About this client/child:
WELCOME TO THE MAD HOUSE!!!! As a family of 4 children, it is as lively and busy as you can imagine. We are all massive music fans and if there is not Queen blasting from the speakers it is because the baby is sleeping! Our oldest son has Cerebral Palsy but that doesn’t stop him trampolining, horse riding, and swimming every chance he gets. He is a very active teenager, loves being outdoors and is an absolute chatterbox. His brothers (9&8) are also very active boys, and there is nothing better than seeing them all play, ski, and an occasional nerf gunfight outside together. Our daughter who is 21 months old, is learning to give as good as she gets in a house full of boys and loves nothing more than wrestling them and showing them who’s boss. 

Overview of role:
We are looking for a family support worker, a team member who is comfortable around all the children. Who can assist in all areas that make a family home run well, and support mum and dad. The role requires the need for organisation, planning, and flexibility. But it also requires the need for seeing the potential all our children have, of assisting and supporting them in their daily lives, and being fun. We love listening to Queen, but nothing makes us happier than hearing our children laugh and having fun. 

Who this job would suit:
We have such an amazing and strong care team already, but we need YOU! If you consider yourself fun, energetic and committed, with all-round childcare experience. If you can lead, be creative and use your initiative. We would love to hear from you!
* We are looking for someone who is flexible and able to work a minimum of 30 hours per week, being a mixture of shifts, including 06.00 am until 09.00 am | 15.00 until 19.00 | 10.00 am until 20.00.  Sleep-ins 22.00 until 09.00 am or 10.00 am. We will consider part-time contracts also. 

What’s great about this job:
“I have worked with this family for a number of years, and I can’t tell you how special they are. I love nothing more than reminiscing with the older children and recalling amazing memories with them. I don’t think anything could give you more passion and purpose in life than working with children, and seeing them thrive, challenge themselves and then go on to challenge the world around them. And that could not be truer about their eldest son! It is a hardworking role with many different aspects, but nothing will build you up more than being celebrated and liked, just for being who you are” Quotation from Current support worker
