PA Vacancy

Personal Assistant – EALY

Hours: 10.5 hours a week (Split across Monday afternoons/evenings and Fridays)

Hourly Rate: £11.76

Responsible to: Direct Payment employer

Location: Central York



I am a 29 year old looking for a PA who can provide me with some support to help me maintain my quality of life alongside my chronic mental and physical health conditions.

I would love for my PA to be able to support me to get out the house a bit in order to help my mental health. Whether that be going to sit in the park, going for a coffee, doing something art/craft related, going to the beach, paddleboarding, or trying something completely new and different. I have a particular interest in bears and love soft toys (jellycats especially).

My PA also needs to be able to help support me with some practical tasks around the house such as washing up, tidying, cooking, hoovering and helping me care for my cats- things that can be a bit of a struggle to do by myself all the time with my physical health conditions.

I love animals and have 2 cats, so you must be comfortable around cats. It is important in this role that you have a good sense of humour and are LGBT friendly. It’s also important that you understand fluctuating health conditions as how I am can vary considerably depending on the day.

Having an understanding of autism is helpful to the role.

I am a very creative person and use a lot of creativity to manage my health. I would really like someone who is creative and can think outside the box!

I’d be able to provide you information and resources about my conditions and how to support me with these if your application is successful.

Car driver (with access to own vehicle) essential to role.
