It is important to all the young men and their families that they all have full and interesting weeks doing things they enjoy. The person who joins these teams should be able to work at the pace that suits the young men and also will spend time getting to know each of them well before doing any one to one lone working.
The normal work pattern will be approximately 8.30/9.00am-6.00pm and can include some respite or evening work at times. This is a 10-15 hour vacancy which needs some flexibility to work on a set rota and to work with the team covering any annual leave or sickness which could mean offering to work at short notice.
