Have you ever wanted a job where you get to socialise, hangout around university and go to town amongst other things?
There is an exciting opening to work as part of my small team of personal assistants. The main criteria of the role is that we get on, as the role essentially means hanging out a lot with me. I am a second year MPhys Theoretical Physics student with a love of all things uni-life.
I like going for coffee, to the cinema, going to music/orchestra events, attending political and science conferences, going to museums, visiting heritage sites, the occasional night out and chilling with friends (typical student). If you like any of the things above, I may just have the ideal job for you.
Now for the small print – the post involves you basically being my hands, as I cannot do things for myself due to having Spinal Muscular Atrophy (type 2). I will need help with cooking, eating, getting dressed, personal care, driving my car and anything else that I need. You will need to be flexible, able to cover other PA’s holidays and absences and available to travel if necessary. If this sounds like a job you would be interested in, I would love to hear from you.
It is the job of a personal assistant to enable me to carry out personal, domestic, and social tasks. The personal assistant will work under my direction to meet my needs for physical assistance. They should always ask first what my needs are and should always listen to and act on my requests and directions.
The personal assistant should be able to handle the physical tasks of hoisting, handling, pushing, pulling and bending. The personal assistant does not need to be physically strong to do the job well. However, good general health and stamina are important.
