PA Vacancy

Female Personal Assistant MAD/Selby

Hours: Flexible hours to be discussed, possible weekends evenings and overnights

Rate of Pay: £11.54

Area: Selby

I am looking for honest, fun, caring, friendly people to be my Personal Assistant…

 I am a typical 16-year-old, living in Selby with my Mum, sister, and dog. I love days out, going to theme parks and out and about. I love swimming and playing with balls. I like to spend my time with people who like to play and act silly. I love lights, music, disco’s and going to the seaside.

People who know me say that I am great to be around, but I know my own mind and can be stubborn, lashing out sometimes when people don’t understand me. But once you get to know how I communicate and learn my cues, this will lessen. I have complex needs and require lots of help and support with everyday tasks. I can walk but do use a wheelchair at times when I am tired. It is important that I find people who want to get to know me and anticipate my needs. I have severe developmental delay and receive my medication through a gastrostomy button.

If you can offer the following, then I would love to meet you so we can see if you could be my Personal Assistant.

  • Have a clean driving licence
  • Are mature and experienced with working with children
  • Are a dog lover (my dog sleeps in my bedroom)
  • Are reliable and flexible as hours will vary, including evenings, weekends, school holidays and occasional cover for sickness and annual leave
