Further information:  A Personal Assistant (PA) is required to provide support for a 15-year-old young man who lives in the HU9 area of Hull.  

This young man benefits from one-to-one care and attention due to the combined effects of his disabilities which are epilepsy (absence seizures which are well managed (previously called petit-mal)), a learning disability, and anxiety. There are no personal care aspects associated with this role. 

As this young man’s PA, you will provide support with accessing the local community and enable him to consistently engage in his various hobbies and activities, while encouraging him to develop his independence, as well as enhance his everyday practical skills.

This young man loves the great outdoors, and enjoys bike rides, getting out into the woods, and is quickly becoming a very keen and able fisherman. This young man also enjoys gaming – and although his attention can flip between activities rapidly – he enjoys the focus and one-on-one nature that gaming gives.

The successful applicant will therefore be someone who is pro-active, positive, confident, and extremely supportive. While the successful applicant does not need an NVQ in Healthcare, he/she will ideally have experience of recognising, and acting upon, absence seizures. The successful applicant will be employed subject to a satisfactory DBS check. It would also be appreciated if the PA had access to their own vehicle/driving license, but this is not necessarily a pre-requisite.

Applicants should have a genuine interest in working with disabled people, be honest and trustworthy, be confident, and have the ability to remain calm. You will be a highly confident communicator, who enjoys building relationships with people that are based on respect and trust.

Further information: A Personal Assistant (PA) is required to support a 9year old boy in the HU5 area of Hull.

The PA will be required to work flexibly to assist and support this boy to access social activities in the local community and to increase his independence skills.

He enjoys biking, skateboarding, scootering, going to the park or for an ice cream. He also loves lorries and likes to go out lorry spotting. Currently, due to his anxiety, he usually won't go out with other adults unless mum or dad are there, but this is something the family hope to build up to him being able to do.  Local parks/skateparks or scootering/biking round the block would be outings we hope he could engage in with a PA.  Possibly lorry spotting, depending on circumstances.

He does not need support with personal care.  Keeping him engaged in his interests and often just having 1 to 1 adult attention helps to keep him emotionally regulated. If he starts to become emotionally dysregulated, he will need support to regulate his emotions and behaviour and to keep himself safe.  If he becomes emotionally dysregulated his behaviour may be challenging, but his parents will guide the successful applicant in how to approach this behaviour.

The PA will need to be patient and understanding of this boy’s needs.  Experience of working with looked after/previously looked after children and knowledge/experience of attachment difficulties, developmental trauma, PDA/ASD, ADHD, would be useful, but is not essential.

Applicants should have a genuine interest in working with young disabled people, be honest and trustworthy, and have a confident nature with the ability to remain calm.  Applicants will also be able to demonstrate warmth, compassion and unconditional positive regard for disabled people.

The successful applicant will be prepared to have a DBS check.

“Owing to the nature of this position, any offer of employment will be subject to a satisfactory checking report from the Disclosure and Barring Service, the cost of which will be met by the local authority/employer.”
