PA Vacancy

Personal Assistant (KRO/DP/001/19)

Hours: 6 hours per week
Wage: £9.00 per hour
Location: Fenham

Hours are available as a single job or split as a job share.

I am looking to employ Personal Assistants to support me in my home in the Fenham area of Newcastle (not far from the Morrisons store).

The hours will be over the weekend and the hours can be flexible. There will also be extra hours available to cover holidays and sickness during the week.

The job involves a range of tasks including personal care, domestic work around the home and some activity outside the home.

Domestic work
I will need you to do a variety of tasks around the home. For example, cleaning, dusting, vacuuming and keeping all work surfaces clean and tidy. You will also need to do my laundry; all the washing/drying and ironing that needs doing. I may need assistance with meal preparation and getting shopping in from local stores. Shopping will generally be once per week and I will want a more thorough clean of the house once per week.

Personal Care
I will need help with a range of personal care tasks during every shift, so applicants should not have any qualms about providing personal care. The morning shift will be starting around 7.00am to give me time to get up and ready to get to work. It will be vital that applicants can get to my home in good time each morning, so the position may well be suited to someone who lives locally or has their own transport to get to and from work.
