Role of a PA
The role of the Personal Assistant (PA) is to work and support our clients to live their life independently.
Assisting them with everyday tasks. Our clients employ hourly paid PAs who work shifts or live in PAs with shifts lasting between one and three weeks. The work may include getting the client in and out of bed, washing, dressing, cooking, cleaning, shopping, personal care, toileting and general household tasks. It may also be necessary to drive the client's vehicle and accompany them to university, work, social events, appointments, or even on holiday.
AskJules provides a comprehensive induction and training so no previous experience of care work is necessary, although it is essential to have the desire to be involved in a truly rewarding and socially minded career.
You must be able to respect our client's privacy and have an understanding of the need for confidentiality in all areas of your work. You are:
- a graduate
- able to note take and scribe, as well as proof read
- organised, patient, reliable
- caring and have a good sense of humour
- responsible, confident, and sociable
- clean and tidy in both your appearance and ways
- professional, and have English as your first language.
You must hold a full clean UK driving licence to drive our client's adapted vehicle when required.
You will be fully trained prior to starting, so previous experience of this type of work is not essential.
