Extra information

Our son has experienced difficulties with anxiety around school attendance, so this can be a demanding role. We are looking for someone to help while we are getting ready for work, and to be on hand if things go wrong.

This requires someone who is calmly assertive and kind, and not easily stressed, even in the face of challenging behaviour.

Please only apply if you are confident that you have the requisite skills and experience. We will be seeking relevant references.

We would employ you on a (paid) trial basis to start with, to ensure that everyone is happy
