JOB DESCRIPTION

Part-Time Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a 9 year old boy, living with my family in the Tonteg area of Rhondda Cynon Taff.

I have Autism which means I need some help, support and guidance at home and when I go out and about in the community.

I attend school which keeps me busy during the week and I generally spend time with my family at weekends.

I’m a happy young boy who likes to keep fit and active. I really like cars, football, playing on my Xbox and going out to eat. 
I also like going out walking and going to see horses with my grandmother.

PURPOSE OF THE JOB

My parents are looking to employ a personal assistant to take me to my swimming lessons in Cilfynydd every 2 weeks.

This will involve collecting me from home and travelling to the swimming pool and supervising me to ensure my safety at all times.
