Personal Support Worker required by a young man in the Countesthorpe area to assist him to access social and recreational activities.
 
The main focus of the role is to support him to get out and about and participate in social activities. It would be ideal if you had similar interests – going to the cinema, socialising, and shopping, day trips to places such as theme parks. He would also like someone to accompany him to the gym and swimming which will require you to go into the pool.
 
The hours will generally be Tuesday and Wednesday during the day, but occasionally he would like to swap these to an evening or weekend if there’s an event he’d like to attend for example a concert or comedy club so you will need to have a degree of flexibility.
 
A good sense of humour is crucial along with a mature outlook and an understanding of how to promote someone’s independence in a safe and secure manner.
You will need to be flexible in your approach whilst respecting the privacy of the individual and recognising the need for discretion and confidentiality at all times as you will be out and about socialising in public places.
 
Access to a vehicle is essential.
 
If you feel you have the desire to assist someone to maintain their independence whilst maximising the opportunities available to them then please apply by completing the application form quoting reference number JS240255 and return to the address as stated on the form or via e-mail to dpssrecruitmentline@leics.gov.uk or forward an up to date CV to the email address above quoting reference number JS240255.
        
For informal enquiries please contact Jane Simpson on Tel: 0116 305 4886.
