Flexicare is an Oxfordshire based charity providing a sitting service for families with severely disabled children. The role is fully flexible and involves some weekend and evening hours, determined by you, to fit around your life and existing commitments. No two days or weeks are the same.

To our Flexicare children, our sitters are a friend who is not their parent, carer or medic. They set firm, gentle boundaries and are able to think outside the box. You will make a difference, some big, some small.

For siblings, the sitter is a friend providing one on one undistracted attention, play, time, interest; a release from being a carer or an interpreter.

You will be joining an existing friendly and supportive team of Manager, Office Manager, two other Co-ordinators and a cohort of volunteers. Full training is provided. Ongoing support and mentoring is part of the Flexicare ethos.

Duties include:
Arranging and undertaking sits
Ensuring high standards of care
Assessment of new families
Facilitating training of volunteers and other staff members
Assisting with running the charity
Assisting with fundraising events

Person Specification:
*a medical background, for instance nursing or paramedic
*must drive and have access to a car is essential
*ability to work flexibly (including evenings and weekends)
* Enhanced DBS and full understanding of safeguarding required
