We are delighted to be working in association with a case management company on this position. They will be carrying out all recruitment once candidate CVs have been forwarded for their consideration. Click here for more info on how Snap works with associated companies/clients.

Miles, 13, is a delightful boy who enjoys being active! He loves swimming and horse riding, the cinema and the zoo, going to the playground and activity parks and eating out. He is also learning to play the guitar! Miles has learning and severe speech and language difficulties, which make it hard for him to express himself. His speech has improved since he started at a specialist school, and he uses Makaton as well as special programmes on his iPad.

Miles needs a Buddy to spend time with him during school holidays while his mum is at work. This will involve organising and accompanying him to fun activities (he has quite a few favourites!) You will spend time with Miles both at home and out and about. A driver with own car would be ideal, but Miles enjoys travelling on the bus and the train, so this is not essential.

The job will suit a pro-active and caring Buddy. Miles needs someone patient, who is capable of exploring different ways to understand what he is saying due to his speech and language difficulties. Someone who is inventive and energetic, preferably with experience of Makaton. This job would be ideal for a TA or LSA who is looking to gain 1:1 experience during school holidays.

Great opportunity to work with a fun loving boy and help him enjoy his holidays to the max! The family would be willing to consider a job share, so if you are available for any of the hours please get in touch!
