We are delighted to be working in association with a case management company on this position to find a paediatric support worker to work with their 7 year old client(Click here for more info on how Snap works with associated companies). 

We are urgently seeking support for Simon, a delightful boy aged 7 who enjoys calming, sensory activities and swimming. He has complex needs, including cerebral palsy and epilepsy and tires easily. Simon is fed and receives medication, via a gastrostomy and requires help with all activities of daily living.

You will work as part of Simon’s team to support him and his family. You will have the opportunity to work alongside a treating therapy team to provide the best care and enable Simon to progress with his rehabilitation goals. This role will suit support workers who can be flexible in their working pattern to ensure Simon’s needs are met within the team. Simon lives in the Barham area of Ipswich and applicants will ideally live within a 5-mile radius.

While some experience with children with disabilities is required, there will be excellent training opportunities with this job, including Epilepsy management, medicine administration, manual handling, hoists, pump feed, gastrostomy and Basic Life Support. 

We are also recruiting for a part-time position with this client based on 24 hours a week.
