Purpose of Job


I’m looking for a Personal Assistant to support me around my everyday life.  I'm a 31-year-old man based in the west end of Newcastle, I have agoraphobia (anxiety of being outside, and in various social situations etc.) due to this I require support with some daily tasks. 


This role will primarily involve supporting me with going to different places, for example; shopping, cafes, parks, short walks, museums or any other relevant places, in order to help build my confidence and ability to manage my anxiety independently while doing day to day activities.


I'm a friendly intelligent guy and easy to get along with.  My interests include writing, nature, photography, movies, and anything artsy.  I have a place on a master’s degree starting in September so we will be doing things directly related to building my confidence up for this.


I am an excellent listener and very friendly, but this role is for someone who has good boundaries and will focus on supporting me in my life with my goals.


You should be friendly, kind, have a calm nature but be able to encourage and support me when required.


Since the role involves helping support me building my confidence while being out and about and in social situations, you must be a car owner, confident driver and also confident at taking buses too.  You must also be reliable and have a positive attitude.  Ideally you will be understanding, and a good listener, but also know when to help encourage and motivate me at appropriate times.


The position is subject to an interview, a trial period and also a clear DBS check. It is also subject to at least 2 references.


My Personal Assistant must be reliable and able to work flexible hours.  You must also be able to respect my privacy and understand the need for confidentiality in all areas of your work.
