James 24 has quadriplegic cerebral palsy  and is dependent on others for all his needs. James has a huge passion for life. He works as a poet, theatre maker, workshop leader and is a Director of a large not-for-profit theatre company. James is non-verbal but uses eye gaze technology to communicate and drives a power chair using head switches. 

The role will involve assistance with all aspects of personal care and all aspects of daily living; you must be confident in manual handling, providing personal care and administering medication. James spends a lot of his time going to the theatre, concerts and music gigs and attending sport matches. An enthusiasm for creative arts and sport would be an advantage. This job will involve working between Poole in Dorset and Haggerston in London, with lots of travel both in the UK and sometimes abroad. The ability to confidently navigate a step-free route across London is important. The family home, in Poole, has a hydro therapy pool and assistance and willingness to support James in the water is also essential. 
Dave has a work PA and uses Creative Enablers when in the theatre space or rehearsal rooms. You will have to be flexible to accommodate the change-over times to fit in with work and location requirements. 

This job will suit a motivated, proactive candidate with plenty of common sense who has strong experience supporting a client with a disability and understands the importance of promoting independence.
