The need for your specialist skill set is growing with the aging population, along with children and adults with disabilities seeking the support they need to maximise their independence and create respite time for their carers and parents.

This Sitting work is flexible work, that can be done around existing jobs and or study commitments. You can work across a number of clients for part or full time hours. A good option for school hours.

There is a particular need for before and after school availability, as well as evenings, weekends and school or college holidays for children and young people.
