Area: City of Edinburgh
Working pattern: Part-time
Closing date: Open
Rate of pay: £11.24 per hour

I am a woman who lives in her own home in Stockbridge, supported by a team of Personal Assistants. Due to reduced mobility and chronic pain I require help with every aspects of my life. I have PAs that help with me domestic tasks, personal care and cooking, but I now need someone that can help me with my pain management routines.

Due to a number of chemical sensitivities and allergies I manage pain via pain-relief patches. I am looking for someone who can assist with the application and removal of these patches, twice daily.

The patches are non-narcotic and do not have any special handling instructions. I would also require assistance with getting dressed/undressed.

You will be working with me, as part of a team, to put systems in place to allow me to live safely, independently and well. Support with general daily living tasks would also be required.

I use my MacBook and iPad as tools to store and access information, so someone who is IT-literate, specifically with Apple products, software and apps, is a must. 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. You would assist me with making sure my pain medication is recorded accurately where needed.

The post would be best suited for someone living or working in the Stockbridge area.


Applications are welcomed from female applicants only. This is a genuine occupational requirement. 

Please note: the employer has chemical sensitivities which applicants should be aware of and can read more about in the job description.

The post:

9 hours per week, rate of pay £11.24 per hour. Working patterns can be discussed but please indicate your availability in your application.

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’!

Please apply as soon as possible.
