About this client/child: Ethan (8) lives at home with his Mum, Dad, younger twin siblings (6) and friendly Labrador. Ethan is an active and sporty boy, who loves Parkour, football, and tennis. He is bright and creative and enjoys the arts and cooking. He is musical too and plays the piano and guitar. Ethan thrives on one-to-one interactions and responds very well to humour. Ethan does not like demands or feeling overwhelmed. Ethan has a diagnosis of Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) and Non-Verbal Learning Disability (NVLD) and he can experience anxiety and behaviours that may challenge when he is dysregulated. The family is currently working with a child psychologist, until September 2024. The SEN Nanny will have the opportunity to work alongside the psychologist and receive training in implementing interventions.

Overview of role: This weekend role will be full of trips and activities such as swimming, tennis, or days out in the community. Days start at 8.00am, and the SEN Nanny will support the children with their morning routine, including breakfast and getting ready for the day. Mum and Dad are always around at the weekend, and the SEN Nanny will be confident and happy to work in collaboration with them. On some days the SEN Nanny will be taking Ethan swimming, and other days you will be supporting the twins in an activity with Mum. There is no expectation to have sole charge of all three children. There will be occasions where Ethan needs to complete some homework and he will need support to stay focused on the task. It would be great if the SEN Nanny loves to cook and could occasionally help to prepare lunch. This role requires the SEN Nanny to be adaptable and flexible. Remaining calm and confident when the children become dysregulated is essential to this role.

Who this job would suit: This role will suit a person who stays calm under pressure. A professional SEN Nanny, with a great sense of humour, who is used to working in busy households and supporting a child with behavioural needs.

What’s great about this job: Fantastic opportunity to become part of this loving family and support the ongoing development of all the children. Training opportunities from a child psychologist. Additional paid time off between Christmas and New Year.

Who is recruiting for this role? Snap Care will be carrying out all recruitment including shortlisting, recruiter interviews and arranging employer interviews.
