PA/carer needed for disabled postgraduate student

Personal assistant/carer needed for a disabled postgraduate student living in Hendon. Would suit a student, as I am located very close to Middlesex University.

I need someone who is able to visit for an hour a day, four days a week, to help me with showering, dressing, preparing breakfast, occasional light cleaning, helping with my cats, and generally setting me up for the day. My needs are moderate, and you will be given full training.

No previous experience needed. More important is patience, a sense of humour, and a friendly and sensitive approach. Some basic awareness of the social model of disability and of Aspergers would be an advantage (but again, full training will be provided).

Please apply with CV and a covering letter.

Rate is L9 per hour. You can be either employed or self-employed. If you prefer to be employed, you will be paid through a payroll agency which will calculate tax, and you will need an NI number.

You may be asked to work a ‘trial shift’ to see if this is the right job for you. There will be a probationary period of four weeks before the job becomes permanent (on a rolling one-year contract).

Location: Hendon, London
