  • Salary: £10-£12 per hour, depending on experience and the number of hours worked

Mum is seeking someone to work alongside her in the busy afternoon/early evening part of the day, to help to manage the children and afternoon dinner/bath/bed routine.  Their son is severely autistic, and whilst no specific experience of the condition is required for the role, you do need to be someone who is sensitive and understanding of his behaviours and moods from day to day, and who can adapt accordingly.

 You should be proactive and helpful, happy to get “stuck in” with whatever needs doing and who can work alongside mum with limited instruction.

You should have at least two years experience of working with children, either in a paid capacity or perhaps as a volunteer.  Candidates with relevant experience via bringing up their own family will also be considered.  The family will also consider a nanny who has their own child who they would like to bring with them, provided this dynamic works within the family’s own routines.

You should have an up to date DBS certificate (or be willing to obtain one).  A driver is not required.
