We are delighted to be working in association with a case management company on this vacancy; they will be carrying all out recruitment, including shortlisting and interviewing.

Tom, aged 9 years, requires a new night carer to join his small care team. He is a loving, sweet and cheeky chap who has cerebral palsy and additional medical needs. We are looking to recruit a calm, engaging and experienced support worker to join Tom's team. The team work closely with the parents who are instrumental in their son's care.

The role involves getting Tom ready for bed and setting up his bedroom and sleep system. You'll then settle Tom to sleep ensuring he is comfortable. You can then go to bed, however, you will need to be alert to Tom waking during the night via an audio monitor. He can have settled nights but is often disturbed a couple of times and can take time to settle back down; he may need repositioning to help him drift back off to sleep. The morning consists of getting Tom up and ready for school and giving him his morning medications and breakfast. Due to his complex needs, Tom requires help with tube feeding and personal care. Experience of these would be an advantage but not essential as full training will be given.

This job will suit a confident and reliable candidate who has flexibility to fit into the team and support the family with the care hours required and to accompany Tom and his family on holiday.

As mentioned, client specific training will be provided for all aspects of Tom's care including mandatory health and safety. If you wish to be considered for this role supporting a delightful boy, please apply today with your updated CV.

Please note, whilst Snap endeavour to reply to all applications, some of our positions are so popular this is not possible and only shortlisted candidates will be contacted
