Personal Assistant required

3.5 hours per week to be used flexibly (usually Thursday or Friday afternoon or very occasionally in an evening.

£9.75 per hour

The purpose of this role is to support my daughter, who is looking for a Personal Assistant who is patient, confident and happy to chat, but is sensitive to moods and can judge when this is not appropriate.

My daughter directs her own support, so she will decide what will be happening in each shift and will often make the decision about what she wants to do on the day, so you need to be comfortable with this.  She enjoys being outdoors doing things like walking her dog and gardening and visiting different places.

She also needs support occasionally to go swimming.  She would like support to find and try out new activities as well where possible.  She may need occasional support to go out in the evenings

Closing date for applications: Friday 14th April 2020
