Work for Us
WHAT DOES A PA DO?
As a live in Personal Assistant (PA), you will work with our spinally injured clients in their own homes, assisting them to maintain their independence on a daily basis. Our clients are based throughout the UK.
We are looking to employ individuals who are willing to work on a regular basis for a minimum of 3 months, although the majority of our staff stay with us for 1 to 2 years. Individual assignments can vary in length and usually last a minimum of a week; most are 2 or 3 weeks long.
The work can be very rewarding and you need to be patient, enthusiastic and confident. You will have a good command of English. You will also be a confident driver; it is essential you hold a valid driving licence. Please note - your driving skills will be assessed, as part of our recruitment process.
Whilst you are working with our clients, you will be required to carry out:
- Personal care tasks including assisting clients with washing/dressing, assisting with bladder/bowel care
- Preparing food and drink for clients.
- Supporting clients in their day-to-day lives, taking them to work, social occasions, appointments, on holiday etc.
All of our newly recruited PAs (Personal Assistants) are required to attend our ‘Induction Course’, which is held over 5 days at our Head Office in Kendal, Cumbria.
The training course will enable the new recruits to develop their knowledge and skills, enabling them to provide comprehensive and appropriate assistance under direction from a client who has a spinal cord injury.
