About this opportunity

An opportunity has come up for the right people to offer support to a young man in his early 30’s who is looking to enjoy life.

J is smart, intelligent and funny with a sense of humour on the Frankie Boyle end of the spectrum. He loves a good conversation and has a unique perspective on life that will enrich anyone who takes the time to listen.

J has some physical challenges and needs to work with people who will pay attention to detail and be prepared to undertake training to do their work well.

If you like a blether on a ‘subject’; if you like a good laugh; if you can be both reliable and spontaneous on any given day; if you want to leave work feeling like a good thing has happened then working with J might just be the thing you both need!
