Purpose of Job I have a long-term health condition that affects my mobility (due to pain) and energy levels. Therefore, the purpose of this job is to provide me with the support I require to ensure the smooth running of my home and be able to spend time with all my children. Myself and my husband currently works from home, and we would expect consideration when carrying out duties regarding noise levels.

My home is a busy lively one, we have three children and a dog.  As my Personal Assistant your job will be to provide the domestic assistance around the home that I sometimes need.

My personal assistant will work under my direction to meet my needs and will be accountable to me in all aspects of your work. I require a high level of hygiene and cleanliness and someone who is methodical in their approach to the cleaning tasks.

You should always ask first what my needs are and should always listen to and act on my requests and directions.  I prefer that my assistance is given by a woman who must be reliable and able to work flexible hours.  She must also be able to respect my privacy and understand the need for confidentiality in all areas of her work.

Good general health is important as I need help with everyday lifting and carrying.

Main Duties

My Personal Assistant will be expected to do the following tasks.  Some tasks are daily, others weekly or monthly.

As my needs will vary it is important that the personal assistant is flexible about what the work involves and agrees to undertake any other reasonable Personal Assistance tasks that I request.

  • Shopping and assistance with shopping
  • Assistance with household management unpacking, fetching, and carrying
  • General Cleaning.

There are no formal qualifications needed to do this job.  For the most part of the tasks and assistance involved can be learned through the personal assistant and I working together.  I am the person best qualified to know what my needs are and how they are best met.

Where it is required, such as in Health and Safety matters, practical training and guidance will be arranged, and the personal assistant will be expected to attend.
