This is a very special opportunity for the right candidate who I am hoping is you!

Here on the REED Health & Care desk in Leeds, I am looking for someone to be part of a 2:1 support package for a female in her mid-20s. The customer is a lovely young lady who is great company & has a great sense of humour! She enjoys a wide range of activities such as trampolining & swimming, as well as chilling out & watching a good cooking show.  

The customer has been diagnosed with severe learning disabilities & significant communication problems, although this should not be mistaken for lack of understanding. Therefore, the ideal candidate will be intuitive & attentive - perhaps with a natural ability to understand others' thoughts, feelings & needs through non-verbal communication. The customer uses a wheelchair, although she is able to walk short distances & we are hoping that this is something that the right candidate can encourage. 

Additional qualities I am looking for:

- Someone energetic, up-beat & motivational 
- Someone patient & compassionate 
- Experience in a similar position is prefered but not essential (I'm more interested in finding the right person!
- Someone who is comfortable with giving personal care
- Someone who will deliver effective person-centred care & understand the importance of seeing the INDIVIDUAL before the disability 

This is undoubtably a complex package & so it is imperative that you are committed to providing complex & consistent care. I am definite that you too will reap the rewards of having such a positive impact on this young lady's life. 

Shift pattern: 

Thursdays 10am - 3.30pm 
Saturday 9am - 3pm / 10am - 4pm 

If you are unable to do both days or unable to do a whole shift please do still get in touch if you are interested in the position. 

If you feel you match these requirements; have a feeling that this job is 'for you'; or would like some more information about this package, please do not hesitate to give me a call so that we can arrange a face-to-face chat. 

To apply, please respond to this job ad, or alternatively, contact me on 0113 394

I am excited to hear from you!
