I’m a young lady aged 31 who is just about to move into my new home in Market Harborough. To support me in this new exciting chapter of my life I am looking to employ a Personal Assistant(s) for a total of 20 hours each week. Monday to Friday morning and evenings, Saturday and Sunday just mornings, with some floating hours. I would prefer to have two people who share these hours so they can cover for one another at times of holiday/sickness.
I need support with most things during the day. Help to get up and ready in the morning, showering, preparing drinks and meals, and then again at night-time to prepare for bed. As well as domestic chores to keep my new home “spick and span”.
I have an emotional support dog who is very important to me so you must be comfortable around him and be prepared to take him out in the mornings for a walk. There will be times that I need you to support me emotionally, ensuring I am eating, encourage, motivate me to start the day. I also require prompting to guarantee I have taken my medication.
I am due to receive a Motability vehicle which I will drive myself but whilst waiting for that I will need someone who has access to a vehicle (with a clean current driving license) to support me to get to appointments, do shopping and socialise.
Enhanced DBS check applicable to this role
  • 5.6 weeks paid holiday (pro-rata)
  • Access to a workplace pension
Motivational, fun-loving person is what I am looking for with a patient calming manner, the role is about enabling me to maintain my independence.
If you feel you have the necessary skills and personal qualities to support me then I would love to hear from you.
