Maternity Leave (1 year contract)
I am a friendly 33 year old disabled man looking for a full-time female Personal Assistant to join my team. This will initially be for a 1 year maternity cover however there will be a possibility of extending after this period.
I have Duchenne muscular dystrophy and am supported 24/7 by my team of PAs. I have a positive outlook and lead a full life. I’m currently studying part-time for a PhD in History and enjoy seeing my family and friends.
The role as my PA includes personal care, health care and assistance with activities of everyday living. Previous care experience is helpful but not essential as you will be given full, specialist training. You will also receive on-going support from my experienced PAs.
Personal Assistant Requirements
To be my PA you should have a positive attitude to work and be able to fit into a physically active role. You must also be a confident, experienced driver with a full, clean licence to drive my adapted vehicle. I frequently need to be driven to meetings, appointments or social activities. I need someone who is organised, flexible, patient and reliable. You should also have a good standard of written and spoken English.
Hours of Work
The hours of work are arranged on a rota. You will need to be flexible to cover sickness and annual leave.
As this is a maternity cover, we are looking for the successful candidate to start in May 2018.
You will be employed directly by me. The pay rates are from £11 per hour for weekdays (£10 during the probationary period) up to £16.50 per hour for Sundays.
If you are interested in working alongside me and my team please apply through my recruitment agency with an up to date CV. Please outline previous employment and education and explain why you would be suitable for the role.
Due to the nature of the position there is a Genuine Occupational Requirement to recruit female Support Workers.
