Personal Assistants required; Well paid, Not live-in – separate flat provided,
Croydon Independent Living Scheme requires bright and enthusiastic PAs to support disabled people to live independently in the community. Unique opportunity because each disabled user is supported by two full-time Personal Assistants and the successful applicants for the posts available will be able to live rent-free in a separate, well-appointed flat close to the user in Purley, South London.
– The flat with all the bills paid (including rent, gas, electricity, water, council tax and TV Licence).
– A flexible two-day-on, two-day-off shift pattern with every other long (3-day) weekend off.
– A starting minimum gross salary of between £550 and £750 per week (£28,600 and £39,000 per annum) with additional opportunities to earn more for those wishing to work extra hours.
In contrast to many other similar posts we do not require Personal Assistants to live-in or sleep-over at the home of the users. It is not necessary to have a driving licence and no previous experience is required, as all training is provided.
We have successfully recruited applicants through Gumtree for fifteen years and in the past these posts have been very popular with graduates looking for valuable work experience in social care, nursing, medical professions like physiotherapy and occupational therapy and visitors to the UK on working holidays.
