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 Personal Assistant (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) but includes a wide range of tasks to help people achieve their individual outcomes and goals. 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 and being able to work locally. It’s also a way of gaining on-the-job experience relevant in many careers such as childcare, mentoring, nursing, psychology, customer service, personal training, community development and social work. You’ll be gaining invaluable skills while also helping people to live independently and achieve the things that matter to them. There are a range of different positions available located throughout Port Talbot, Neath, Pontardawe and the surrounding valley areas. Positions available can vary from 3 hours per week part-time contracts to 37 hours per week full-time contracts. Hours can be during the week or during evenings and weekends and can fit flexibly around your other commitments such as studying, childcare and other employment. 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.

More than 140,000 people call Neath Port Talbot County Borough home and, as their council, we work hard to deliver hundreds of services every day. We are passionate about making life better for our residents and we want to create a place where everyone has an equal chance to get on in life. We see two ways of making this happen. Firstly, via the traditional route, where we directly provide opportunities for growth and change. And secondly, through a more innovative route, where we empower the people in our communities to identify common goals and then find ways of working with each other to achieve them. We have set ourselves three ambitious goals: 1. To ensure our children and young people get the best start in life, so they can be the best they can be 2. To help all our residents to take an active part in community life, socially and economically 3. To make our county borough a vibrant, healthy and safe place to live, work and enjoy leisure time. As Director of Education, Leisure and Lifelong Learning, and member of the corporate executive team, you will play a key role in making this happen. The Education, Leisure and Lifelong Learning portfolio covers some of our most visible and important frontline services and requires an ambitious, creative and innovative leader. You will advise the Chief Executive, Corporate Directors’ Group and Elected Members on key issues and strategies based on your clear understanding of education, leisure and lifelong learning legislation, policy and best practice in Wales. You have a proven track record of providing effective and visible leadership to multi-disciplinary teams, and delivering strategic projects and change programmes. You can demonstrate your experience of successful partnership working, aimed at improving services and the quality of life for our residents and communities. Enabling children, young people and adults to fulfil their potential will be high on your agenda. You can demonstrate your ability to work as part of an effective corporate executive team, but you are also an aspirational leader, not just embracing but living our corporate culture and values. And to consistently deliver on the council’s aims and objectives, you are leading by example, instilling those values, beliefs and behaviours in others.
