I am currently looking for people who are enthusiastic, physically fit, good communicators, who have a positive outlook, and experience of supporting someone who has a physical disability. As I live in a village with poor public transport links, you will need to be able to commute to and from my house. Being a car driver is essential.

£10.00 per hour for weekday shifts (Fri)
There is also the possibility of covering other shifts when my other PAs are on
annual leave or on sick leave.
The night shifts are not waking nights, but you will be required to get up a few times during the night to help me.
Some of the activities associated with this role are as follows:
- A range of personal care tasks (for which you will receive full training)
