 Personal Assistant AG/NCL

 22 Hours per week

 Gosforth, Newcastle Upon Tyne

 £11.50-£11.60 per hour


I am a 38 -year-old male, looking for a proactive, trustworthy, and reliable personal assistant to help me three days per week (Tues 9:30-18:30, Thurs 11:00-18:30, Fri 11:00-18:30). This job is a dual role helping me with everyday activities I can’t do myself (due to a spinal cord injury which occurred in 2014). This will include things such as driving my wheelchair accessible vehicle (a small transit van), helping me keep my flat clean, helping me access my exercise equipment and emptying my catheter leg bag (this is very easy, gloves & full training will be provided).

In this role, you will also be required to help me with the day-to-day running of the charity I founded, as this is my full-time work. This will involve helping me with admin/paperwork, taking me to appointments, assisting with grant applications and marketing on our social media platforms. Full training will be provided, but computer literacy and good English writing skills are essential. There is a minimum requirement of five A-C’s in GCSEs, but A-levels or even a degree would be preferred.
