PA Vacancy

Personal Assistant (SPI/DP/002/19)

Personal Assistant Vacancy

Hours:  5 hours per week (40 minute shifts but will pay hourly rate over 5 days)

Rate of pay: £9 per shift

Location: Jesmond (near Metro)

We are looking to recruit a Personal Assistant to cover July and August and possibly September to support my wife in an evening.  There is a shift every day (5 days per week).  Each shift will probably normally only take 40 minutes and then you will be able to go.

The role is to support my wife around the evening meal and bed time routine, assisting her getting undressed and brush her teeth and helping me wash up, leaving everywhere tidy.

My wife has limited vision so it is important for accident prevention and to maintain her independence that everything is put back where it belongs.

Each shift starts at 8.30pm.  These shifts are from Monday to Friday (so 5 in all).  Please indicate on the application form if you are wanting specific shifts or if you would be happy to do any that are available.

Because of the short nature of the shifts each day, the role may suit someone who lives in the locality, Jesmond, near the City Centre/Royal Grammar School.

Please download the application pack here App Pack SPI_002_19 or email directpayments@disabilitynorth.org.uk (ref SP/DP/002/19).
