Live-in Personal Care Assistant
One week on and one week off - £750 per week
St. Ives (Cambridgeshire)
As a full-time powered wheelchair user, I'm looking for an extremely reliable, caring, conscientious, proactive, and fun person to join my small team of Live in Personal Assistants (PAs), working 1:1 with me to assist me to live independently in my own home in the vicinity of St. Ives (Cambridgeshire), starting as soon as possible.
This is a live-in role: one week on and one week off - £750 per week
Care experience isn't essential (but preferred) as training will be given, but you will need to be able to pick up fairly complicated routines/tasks quickly and not be phased by things that are new to you. Rotas are scheduled in advance.
My physical impairment means that I need to have pretty much every aspect of daily living - including personal care, domiciliary tasks and accompanying/driving me when socialising (to name but a few) - done for me. Basically, everything you do for yourself I need a PA to do for or with me. I have a fairly busy life - I work full-time in a fast-paced environment and enjoy socialising.
Personal Assistant Requirements:
A safe and confident driver who enjoys driving - Driving me around in my own adaptive vehicle is an essential part of this role. Please do not apply if you cannot drive. Applicants must have a manual driving licence.
Able to adapt to new routines
A decent cook - comfortable with meal preparation
Ideally a non-smoker.
Willing to be DBS checked at an enhanced level.
Physically fit with no history of back problems or chronic illness.
Able to speak & comprehend English fluently.
Job Type: Self-employed basis
Salary: £750 per week with time off during the day and a sleep in included
Fulfilling work environment
opportunities to broaden your social horizons
COVID-19 considerations: I'm seen as high risk from Covid-19, so I'm taking all of the right precautions for myself. We will need to trust and respect each other’s preferences to work in the safest way possible together
If this sounds like it could be for you then please send in your CV, letting me know about your relevant experience/qualities and telling me as much as you can about you.
Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!
