JOB DESCRIPTION

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a friendly lady living with my 2 sons in the Cowbridge area.  I have M.E and I am looking to employ a Personal Assistant to assist me with support for social activities whilst also enabling me to remain independence. My condition fluctuates a lot – sometimes I am bedridden, at other times I can move around slowly but spend a lot of time resting. I am housebound the majority of the time.  Sometimes I barely have the energy to talk or it is painful to speak due to severe sore throats, and I also suffer from hemiplegic migraines.

PURPOSE OF THE JOB

To support me for social activities in and around the local area.

HOURS OF WORK

Variable hours available for example- 10 hours per month, which can be further discussed at interview.

RATES OF PAY

£9.70 per hour

TASKS CAN INCLUDE

  • Accompanying me out socially when required

TYPE OF PERSON REQUIRED

  • A person who respects the privacy and confidentiality of working in someone-else’s home
  • Someone who can empathise and understands my condition
  • Someone who is patient and quietly spoken
  • A non-smoker and someone who doesn’t mind not wearing perfume as I am chemically sensitive
  • A car owner / driver
  • Someone flexible
  • Someone non-judgmental

ABOUT THE JOB

Although this is a part-time job, it will be a proper job requiring a National Insurance number to be submitted. A trial period will be necessary in the first instance. The salary will be paid on a four weekly basis and appropriate holiday pay given.
