JOB DESCRIPTION
Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I’m an elderly lady of Portuguese origin living in the St Mellons area of Cardiff. At my time of life, I like being a lady of leisure. Like most of us, I’ve not been out much over the last couple of years, but like to go for a coffee, ideally to a Portuguese coffeehouse and authentic bakeries. I like to watch Portuguese TV as I speak very little English. We have two small dogs at home so being animal lover is important. I live with my family who are very important to me.
