Personal Assistant (WBA/DP/001/20)

Personal Assistant Required
Heaton Area
Friday – 15 hour shift 7am to 10pm
Additional hours will be offered to cover holiday and sickness for other team members
Pay Rate: £9.42 per hour

I am a gentleman living independently in my own home and am looking for two staff members to join my existing staff team. Your role will be to give me the assistance that I need to enable me to remain living independently in my own home.

As this role will involve working very closely with me (I need assistance with all aspects of daily living including personal care) I am looking for someone who is friendly, has a sense of humour, is patient with a calm and consistent approach to the role and can judge when I am in the mood for conversation or when I need to be left to rest.

I have a wide range of interests. I love all types of sport (although football remains my favourite) and I enjoy books particularly the classics (Tolstoy, Orwell, etc.) but I am always looking for new authors to discover. I also enjoy crosswords as I am fascinated by words and sometimes need practical support to complete them (I work out the answer you write it down).

This role is subject to an enhanced DBS check.

Closing date for applications is: 4th March 2020
