A minimum of 3 Personal Assistants are required to provide double-handed care three times a day, 7 days a week, morning (1hr), early afternoon (1hr), and bedtime (8.30pm for 30mins).

There is a total of 36.5hours to be worked between all the Personal Assistants. This will mean on average of 12 hours per week if there are 3 of you, or 9 hours per week if there are 4 of you. However, the overall number of days and hours worked can be based around availability of individual candidates, as long as overall the 36.5hours are fully covered.

I am looking for people who are caring, compassionate, easy to get on with, punctual, reliable, team-workers, and flexible where needed.

Tasks include: personal care; give medication; dressing; showering; changing pads; hoist transfers to bed, commode and wheelchair; tidying-up and light-housekeeping; assistance with basic exercise.

Knowledge of Multiple Sclerosis and/or dealing with a full-time wheelchair user would be an advantage.

Preferably you will live near Streatham Hill or can easily travel there.

You will be able to provide a current DBS certificate, or be happy to apply for one if needed. The costs for applying for this will be paid for by us

The rate of pay is at £10.20 per hour. We expect it will increase in line with any increases in the London Living Wage. There is 5.6 weeks paid annual leave per year. You will be provided with appropriate training as necessary.
