We are looking for a PA to work as part of an existing team supporting our son on a home program. We are based in Platt which is in between Maidstone and Sevenoaks.

Our son is 19 years old and has autism with a severe learning disability. He also has sensory processing disorder, speech and language impairment, and some challenging behaviours.

He is a really fun, energetic young man who is great to be around and thrives on positivity.

You would need to be very energetic, fun, and have a happy disposition. A sense of humour is also helpful as he has a great one.

The hours can be flexible and we would consider splitting the hours as a job share. Access to your own car would be preferred but not essential.

Currently, we are looking for someone to work a Tuesday and Wednesday 10 am – 3 pm. This is term time only but some hours will be available during school holidays as well you to take if you wish.

We’re looking for a special person or two to come and join our family as a Personal Assistant.

Could you be that person? Or do you know someone who could be?

If so, read on below…

You will be employed by us to assist two of our children who have a disability (autism and other difficulties) with their day-to-day living. You will help them have fun in our home or out in the community whilst keeping them safe and well.

Our current PA’s support the boys with activities such as arts and crafts, lego, baking, day trips, and lots of other ideas that the boys have. Nerf gun wars have been pretty popular… 🙂

As a PA you will become part of the family. Although you will be employed, we have a relaxed home environment and you become friends of the family as you could be supporting the boys at birthday parties and family events, and even weddings and christenings… 🙂

You will need a positive personality, caring nature, energy, and a calm approach when dealing with the boys.

Experience of working with kids or adults who have a disability is necessary. This could be from voluntary or paid work, or from personal experience.

We don’t have any fixed hours. It might be after school. It might be at the weekend. It might be just the school holidays. As a family we are flexible. We send out a list of shifts and our PA’s choice if and when they can work. We currently have 9 hours a week during school time available. During school holidays, we have up to 24 hours a week available.

We can pay you £8.72 per hour. We know that the hourly rate isn’t great but we make up for that with fun and laughter. We are based in Harrietsham, just off junction 8 of the A20, near Leeds Castle.

If this sounds like something you are interested in, drop us a message by emailing mjo.watts@hotmail.co.uk or text 07541 107932.
