Our Personal Assistants support people to lead full, active and socially connected lives, supporting people to achieve the things that matter to them.

Job Details

We are looking for a part-time (20 hours per week) Female Personal Assistant to join an existing all female team to provide support to a woman who lives in her own home in Leith (along with her three cats!).

This is a permanent post, and the hours will be made up of shifts occurring during the times in which support is provided. This is usually between 9am and 7pm on various days of the week. However, the candidate would need to be flexible and adaptable to respond to changing needs.

*Exemption under Equality Act 2010

About this opportunity

The woman we support loves animals (especially cats), watching telly (soaps, Jeremy Kyle etc), and going out shopping and for coffees. She is looking for someone with similar interests.

The most important thing for this woman is that her new PA must have a fantastic sense of humour! The woman we support also requires support with personal care, cooking, shopping and housework.

You would be joining a small, personalised team and you would be expected to take part in the additional responsibilities that come with this, such as rota planning, attending meetings and planning sessions, supporting the person to achieve her outcomes, and carrying out a share of admin tasks for the team as required. Time for these tasks is built into your contracted hours.
