£10.88 per hour, paid annual leave and pension scheme available,

I am a woman who lives in her own home in Stockbridge, supported by a team of Personal Assistants. Due to reduced mobility and chronic pain I require help with every aspects of my life. I have PAs that help with me domestic tasks, personal care and cooking, but I now need someone that can help me with my pain management routines.

Due to a number of chemical sensitivities and allergies I manage pain via pain-relief patches. I am looking for someone who can assist with the application and removal of these patches, twice daily. Ideally, this would be 7am and 7pm each day, with some flexibility as long as visits are 12 hours apart.

The patches are non-narcotic and do not have any special handling instructions. I would also require assistance with getting dressed/undressed.

I use my MacBook and iPad as tools to store and access information, so someone who is IT-literate, specifically with Apple products, software and apps, is a must. Record-keeping is vital to ensure my whole team is kept up to date and, due to some cognitive impairment, my own piece of mind. You would assist me with making sure my pain medication is recorded accurately where needed.

The posts would be best suited for someone living or working in the Stockbridge area or nearby.

You will be working with me, as part of a team, to put systems in place to allow me to live safely, independently and well.


Applications are welcomed from female applicants only. This is a genuine occupational requirement.

Please note: the employer has chemical sensitivities which applicants should be aware of and can read more about in the job description.

The posts:

Post 1

14 hours per week, available as a job share for the right candidates, rate of pay £10.88 per hour. 2 visits per day of one hour each.

Post 2

6 hours per weekend, ideally 3 hours on a Saturday and 3 hours on a Sunday with some flexibility. This is to support me around the home, preparing snacks and simple meals, assisting with correspondence etc.

For both posts, some flexible overtime may also be available to cover for other staff absences from time to time.

Trial shifts would be available and training by the employer and other employees would be provided. There is also some scope for additional hours initially to help the successful candidate and the employer get to know one another and ‘learn the ropes’!

Please apply as soon as possible. Please note that if the employer would like to consider you for interview, your application will be held until after the current ‘lock down’ phase of the COVID-19 response. Once it is safe to do so, you will be contacted to arrange an interview.

Please clearly indicate in your application which role/hours you are available for and interested in.

To apply, you can download a job description and application pack from the LCiL website.
