JOB DESCRIPTION

Part-Time Personal Assistant 

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF 

I am a 52 year old lady living in the Wattstown area.  I am bubbly, friendly, articulate and considerate.

I have Bipolar disorder but am currently experiencing improved mental health.  I am very chatty and outgoing, and wouldn’t want my mental health to define me as a person. 

I’m very sociable and like having company, I’m a good communicator and have a great sense of humour.  I’m looking to recruit someone down to earth, with similar interests, who I can talk to, get on with and go out with to do things I enjoy.

I also attend a gym, and occasionally may need transport there.
