Job reference: RB WN EL

Area: East Lothian
Working pattern: Part-time
Closing date: Open
Rate of pay: £9.65 per hour

A gentleman, who lives independently in North Berwick currently recovering from a stroke, is looking for either one or two Personal Assistants (PA) to help him with domestic and social support.

The employer had a stroke in March 2017 and has speech/communication difficulties as a result. This post would therefore suit a person who is interested in/studying speech and language therapy. This is not an essential requirement, but the employee must be willing to learn how to communicate effectively with the employer.

The gentleman also has reduced mobility as a result of his stroke and attends a physical rehab programme where he works very hard to improve his mobility. Therefore, this post would also suit someone who is interested in/studying physiotherapy. Again, this is not an essential requirement.

The gentleman is looking for either one or two Personal Assistants to cover a total of 14 hours per week between them. Please state in your application the maximum and minimum hours you would be able to do.

It may be that one employee is responsible for one set of tasks, and the other employee is responsible for another set of tasks. This would be discussed at interview (i.e. Local/domestic duties and Edinburgh-based rehab and social activities)

Please see the full job description for more information.

Quote from previous employee: “This role has been ideal for me over the last 11 months while I have been studying. I have learnt a lot about how stroke can affect all aspects of life and it has been great supporting my employer to make improvements in his post-stroke recovery. No two days are the same in this role and the days are always interesting and enjoyable.”

Rate of pay is £9.65 per hour.
