Personal Assistant

Location: Washington, North East Rate of Pay: £8.30 per hour

Hours per Week: 5

Job Reference: SUN1430243MB1 Expires: 19th February 2018

About the Employer

I am a 37 year old woman who lives in the Washington Area with my 14 year old son and two cats.

 I currently employ a PA to support me with personal care, domestic duties and cooking, as well as companionship and support to engage in my local community.

I have a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia Functional Neurological Disorder. I suffer from spinal bulging discs and have symptoms of chronic migraines, anxiety and I am photophobic.

I have severe mobility issues. Whilst I am able to walk independently, this is limited and restrictive. I have restricted arm and leg movements which can at times range from minimal to significant discomfort during the day and night.

I require the use of a wheelchair when out and about and have access to my own disability scooter.

Due to issues relating to my equipment and the restrictive access in and out of my property, I am looking to move premises when appropriate housing is identified, which would take me closer to the Centre of Sunderland, which will need to be considered by any candidates applying.

Due to my disability, I am unable to provide specific tasks for my son due to my mobility being restricted and my physical actions being slow.

I am seeking another PA to provide support to both myself and my son following an increase to my care package, to assist us in improving daily duties routines.


Summary of Duties

I am looking for a personal assistant to provide support with the morning routines associated with my son going to school and additional support for myself on a weekend

Duties will include:

•           preparing breakfast

•           preparing a packed lunch

•           taking my son to school in your own car

•           assisting me with the administering of prescribed creams

•           to assist with light house work duties e.g. washing, emptying dishwasher and bed changing when required.


The Person They Are Looking For

I am looking for a personal assistant who has flexibility and experience in the care sector. The candidate should show initiative and enthusiasm, have a good sense of humour and ability to engage with teenagers whilst being flexible, reliable and committed to providing consistency and care.

Car owner and full valid driving license essential (business insurance required).

Due to the nature of the work for which you are applying, this post is subject to a satisfactory DBS disclosure (costs will be covered).

This is a smoking household however I will smoke outside if required.


The Times Required

Available shifts

Monday- Thursday mornings 7:45-08:30

Friday 07:30 -08:30am

Saturday & Sunday morning 10am -10:45am

(Times may vary during school holidays. This will be agreed between employer and employee)

I have an additional 3 hours per week which can be offered weekly to both PA’s to ensure all shifts are covered Monday - Sunday.

The hours can be utilised for a range of tasks I may require. These hours are flexible and can be agreed week by week between myself and my employees.

These hours can be used to provide support with domestic duties around the home. Example: washing, ironing, help with light exercise, gardening and shopping and personal care

Additional hours offered on a casual basis are available to cover sickness or annual leave for other PA and could include additional hours to be used flexibly to cover extra shifts each week.
