Job Details

We are looking for a female* Personal Assistant to join the team who support a young lady who lives in the Newington area. It is for 8 hours per week (possibility to increase hours up to 15 h/week).

*Exemption under Equality Act 2010

About this opportunity

She says:

“I am a young woman who wants to live an independent life. I love singing and am in a choir, although I haven't been for a while.

I am currently trying to look after my mental health by doing more activities outside with my staff, I love going for walks to get my step count up and would like to take up a couch to 10k. I spend time reading and love movies.

I also like learning new things and I’m open to new experiences. I do well in some areas of my life, however I experience some barriers which I feel I need assistance.

This role will enable me to achieve my future goals and live the life I want to lead. Part of the role would be to help me establish a routine around my home that fits around my life. This will improve my mental health and organisational skills and will help me concentrate on the key parts of my life which are important to me. Having a plan and goals to achieve is very important to me.

The ideal person would be friendly, approachable, understanding and able to listen. I am looking for someone to bounce my ideas off and not decide for me, perhaps sometimes offering me a suggestion. I want to continue to feel empowered and more in control of my life.”

As a member of this small, personalised team, you would be expected to take part in the additional responsibilities that come with this, such as attending meetings and planning sessions, supporting the person to achieve her outcomes, and carrying out a share of admin tasks for the team as required.
