During school holidays, they would still offer 26 hours a week but could change the format of hours.

Mum will be home but laid up (at least initially!) – she’s lovely!

The role is to start beginning of March and is initially for 3 months, if her recovery isn’t complete, it could extend. If you’re Ofsted registered this is helpful, but not essential. A driver is a must, duty car can be provided. No pets.
