JOB DESCRIPTION

 Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I live in a small village, 2 miles from Cowbridge with my mother who works in the day. I am looking for a PA that can help me get outdoors and enjoy the countryside, so a confident driver is needed. I have two dogs and two cats. I need a practical person for help around the house, likes animals and to get to shops or further afield.

I am in my early 20s and have a long-term chronic condition and need a PA who is LGBTQ friendly. I have to pace my activity carefully so I need someone who is patient and respectful of my wishes. I need someone who is relaxed, enjoys the outdoors – gardening in particular and most importantly is open-minded. I have a lot of interests and would love some help with wood working.

There are 16 hours per week available.

Hours to be worked during the week, preferably afternoons as I am not able to be up and about before 10.30am.

TYPE OF PERSON REQUIRED

  • Open minded person
