PAs support disabled people to do daily activities that they may be unable or find difficult to do alone. Specific responsibilities are decided by the employer but this could include tasks such as helping around the house, driving to appointments, some personal care or even accompanying them to the cinema.
Previous experience isn ‘t always necessary with this role, as much as reliability, willingness to learn and a positive attitude.
Roles are usually part time, and are sometimes flexible so could be fitted in around other responsibilities – as agreed with the employer.
To ensure that we are able to recruit from a wide pool of applicants, we work in partnership with UKcil to recruit Personal Assistants. Below you will find our current vacancies and you can easily apply for any roles that you may be interested in.
Please note – with all of these roles, the employer is the disabled person who you will be working for. WECIL supports the disabled person in this process but is not the employer itself.
If you have not heard back about a role within 4 weeks of applying, please assume that you have not been successful on this occasion unless contacted otherwise.
