As part of our Information Advice and Guidance Service we support disabled people to employ their own staff as Personal Assistants. This vacancy is not a role within Enham Trust but an excellent opportunity to work directly for one of our customers.
Our client has a vacancy for a Personal Assistant to provide care support for a disabled 22-year-old woman whilst she is back home from university over the summer of 2018
Hours: Live-in ( 7 days per fortnight – Rota flexible)
Start Date: late May 2018
End Date: late September 2018
Location: Family home in Aller (near Langport) Somerset
Pay & Benefits
£770 per week worked plus an opportunity to earn additional money from Study Support budget
Free accommodation when on shift
5.6 weeks’ holiday pro rata
I’m 22 years old with a physical disability, Cerebral Palsy, which means I rely on a wheelchair. I’m currently studying Criminal Investigation with Psychology at Southampton Solent University and need PA / Carers during the summer whilst my regular PAs are away.
I'm a bubbly, fun-loving person with a great sense of humour. I have a very supportive family and a good network of friends. This creates a relaxed, inclusive environment that all my previous PA's have really enjoyed working in. My interests include days / nights out, Harry Potter, Disney and I’m a keen dog lover. It’s important for me to stay fit and healthy and hence I enjoy swimming and going to the gym. This would make the work ideal for someone with similar interests.
About the Job
You will provide personal & social support. This role goes far beyond simply care work and includes all the fun things you’d expect a bright young woman in their early twenties to be doing, like going to see friends, going to parties, the cinema, going on holiday, playing a bit of sport and much more!
Weekly live-in rota: 7 days per fortnight (Flexible rota)
Previous PA's have often used the flexible working arrangements that come with the week on/week off set up to balance earning money with plenty of free time. The combination of this, with the knowledge that they are having a positive, daily impact on someone's life, and the relaxed, inclusive working environment makes this a unique and exciting opportunity.
Care experience is not required as full training in the client's particular requirements will be provided.
The client will be living with her parents in Somerset, where you will be provided with a PA room with en suite facilities.
Please note you will be required to complete a DBS check – this will be covered by the employer.
