Social Care Personal Assistants - Direct Payments

Ref: N/A

Salary: £8.21 PER HOUR
Closing Date: 12:00, 31 July 2020

If you are looking for a flexible and rewarding job role in the social care sector, you may be interested in becoming a Personal Assistant.

A Social Care Personal Assistant (commonly known as a PA) supports someone because of their age or disability to enable them to live as independently as possible. The majority of PAs are employed to support people with tasks such as domestic chores (e.g. cooking, cleaning, shopping) and assisting people to carry out social activities. Being employed as a PA is not just about supporting someone with their personal care (e.g. assisting someone to wash and get dressed).

People choose to become PAs for a number of reasons including a good rate of pay, not needing previous experience, flexible working opportunities, training prospects, gaining accredited qualifications and being able to work locally.

There are a range of different positions available located throughout Port Talbot, Neath, Pontardawe and the surrounding valley areas. Positions available can vary from five hour part-time contracts to 37 hour full-time contracts.

PAs are employed directly by people who receive a Direct Payment to arrange and pay for their support. Personal Assistants are not employed by Neath Port Talbot Council.
