Personal Assistant – Brighton

  • Location: Brighton
  • Rate: £12.50 per to £14.50 per hour
  • Job Type: Fulltime

Job Description

PA needed to join a well-established friendly team who support a middle aged Gentleman with MND to remain independent in his own Home.

Full Time/Part Time Available

Work in care but fed up of unpaid gaps between visits? Perhaps you feel your client-base is too irregular? Or maybe you’d just like the security of regular care hours?

We’re recruiting now for the right person to join our friendly team of carers (we call them Personal Assistants), supporting a middle aged Gentleman who is a retired teacher with Motor Neurone Disease and lives independently in his extremely pleasant three bedroomed purpose built ground floor flat in a quiet cul-de-sac in Hove.

The right candidate is someone who is enthusiastic, caring, excellent communication skills, patient and a reliable team player, has previous care experience and preferably in complex care or with a good knowledge of MND, although full training will be given.

As a member of our caring team, you’ll be responsible for a wide range of tasks that can vary by the day, so an amount of flexibility is required. Some of the main duties include:

  • Administration of medication and regular stock-taking
  • Moving and Handling with Hoist, Gastrostomy Care, Personal Care
  • Ventilation and other specialised techniques
  • General housework
  • Full Training is provided

The Gentleman you’ll be caring for and supporting receives 24hr care, with 2:1 support for 9.5hrs during the day and 1:1 support at other times. We are looking to recruit for daytime hours as we have an established team for nights.

You will need to have a caring personality and strong work ethic, and the successful applicant will be able to keep a level head in stressful situations, be adaptable in their role and responsive to the client’s needs; demonstrating a person-centred approach at all times.

If you think you’re the right person to join our friendly, caring team of PAs, apply today by clicking the ‘apply now’ button and we’ll send you a full job description and application.

All appointments are subject to appropriate DBS disclosure and satisfactory references.

  • Previous care experience

Preferable:

  • Complex Care experience
  • Knowledge of Motor Neurone Disease
