Job Description:

I am a young man in my twenties with epilepsy and am looking for a fun, friendly, reliable PA who can accompany me in the activities I enjoy such as going to the gym, golf, fishing, karate and generally be a good friend. I am an outgoing person and also like to go shopping, to the cinema, bowling, or for days/nights out e.g. music concerts/festivals, conventions, theme parks etc.

I also want to improve my life skills in readiness for independent living so other activities could include cooking, cleaning, washing/ironing, food shopping.

I am actively applying for work so I may need someone to accompany me to job interviews.

Ideally you would be available for 6 hours per week, but some additional hours may be available for occasional days out.

There is the potential for additional hours for the right person to provide respite care to stay overnight or to accompany me on holidays or short breaks.

Experience or Qualifications:

No previous experience of being a PA or carer is necessary, but an understanding of epilepsy would be advantageous. Knowledge of basic first aid and how to deal with seizures is required.

A valid driving license/car is preferable although a willingness to travel on public transport will be considered.

Any offers are subject to a DBS check, receipt of two references and checking the legal right to live and work in the UK.
