Is a PA the right job for me?
Would you like the opportunity to work for and assist a disabled person on a one to one basis to have choice and control in their life and to live independently within their own home and in the community?
Do you enjoy the company of people, are able to work flexibly, reliable, have good communication skills and willing to learn how to meet the individual needs of the person you are assisting?
If the answer is YES to both of these questions then applying for one of our vacancies or our PA register could be for you.

What happens next:
After completing your application form and returning it to Employer Support, your application will be sent to employers which you have requested and if indicated other employers which are appropriate.
If short-listed you will be asked for an interview, which will give the employer the opportunity to decide whether they wish to employ you. This is also the applicant's opportunity to find out more information to decide whether you feel the position is appropriate for you.

We support over 2,000 people every year. But we need your help.
