The aim of the job is to provide the assistance required by the employer, a disabled man through a rugby injury.
Previous experience is not in any way necessary. An open mind, honesty and a sense of humour are probably the most important attributes to bring to the table. It also requires an ability to listen to requests and directions, the ability to diligently and competently execute these instructions, and the capacity to also show initiative and work without the need for supervision. Getting the right assistance at the right time is a huge help to leading my life independently.
The person should be honest, reliable & punctual as well as reasonably flexible. Have a good sense of humour, be enthusiastic, practical and hygienic. A respect for privacy and confidentiality are essential. Basic computer skills and a driving licence would be a bonus, but not at all essential.
I’m interested in all kinds of sport, particularly going to Murrayfield and local rugby matches, going to the cinema, music of almost all varieties, particularly folk music, world and current affairs, social anthropology, the festival & all sorts of extra curricular activities including beekeeping!
The position is permanent with paid holidays and pension contributions and with a potential for additional hours as part of holiday/sickness cover if those extra hours are suitable to the successful applicant. Extra permanent hours may also be negotiable.
