Rate of pay: £12.57

Rate of pay £12.57 per hour.

 

I am an older woman who lives in her own home in Stockbridge, supported by a team of personal assistants (PA.)  Due to being confined to bed I require help with every aspect of my life, and have a team of PA who assist me with all aspects of care and daily living tasks.

 

This role will include personal care, serving meals, assisting with medications, cleaning, and other responsibilities to assist me with continuing to live independently in my own home.

 

Record-keeping is vital to ensure my whole team is kept up to date and, due to some cognitive impairment, my own piece of mind.  It is essential that PA be a member of the protection of vulnerable groups scheme (PVG) or willing to join.  The employer will cover this cost.

 

Applications are welcomed from female applicants only. This is a genuine occupational requirement.  PA will join a small supportive team of carers.

 

Please note: The employer has chemical sensitivities and it is essential that fragrances are not worn.

 

Looking for up to three PA to cover the following shifts.  Please state in your application which shifts you are interested in.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for one hour each day with start between 0930 and 1000.

Monday to Friday for two hours each day starting between 1730 and 1800.

Saturday and Sunday for one hour each day with start of between 0930 and 1000.

 

There is often additional shifts available to cover staff holidays.

 

Trial shifts would be available and training by the employer and other employees would be provided.  There is also some scope for additional hours initially to help the successful candidate and the employer get to know one another and ‘learn the ropes’!
