Job vacancies for Personal Assistants

The Disability Resource Centre is pleased to partner with CarePair to advertise jobs from employers who are looking to recruit personal assistants. Each employer and each job is different. Hours of work, duties and skills required vary for each employer.

PA job of the week

Two or three Personal Assistants (PAs) are required for an independent young man in Bedford.

We have a young adult male client, living in Bedford, who requires two or three Personal Assistants (PAs) to cover mornings and evening shifts. 

Working hours are Monday to Friday 10.30am – 3.30pm and in the evenings from 6pm -10pm. Saturdays from 10am – 10pm and Sundays 10am – 3pm. 

Our client is a very independent young man who has a happy, jolly nature. He enjoys going to the gym, night clubs and he drives his own car. He is a wheelchair user and requires support in the morning with personal care; washing, dressing, cooking, cleaning and attending appointments. The PAs will read his letters and make appointments for him where necessary. Our client will require his wheelchair to be pushed when out and about from car to venue.

The evening PA will support with going to the gym, swimming, concerts, cinema and other social events.

PAs will be expected to cover each other when on holidays or sick.

The hourly rate for these roles is £8.50 per hour.

Please email us for more details and to apply for one of these roles.

On Fridays, The Disability Resource Centre holds a drop-in session for people interested in becoming a Personal Assistant in care.

Come along to chat to us over a cup of tea or coffee every Friday at 10am-12pm, for people interested in becoming a PA.

Personal assistants are employed by disabled or older people who need someone to help with their daily needs, both personal and social.

Every week we have new jobs available for you to apply for.

We’ll show you details of our training courses, some of them are free. Our training can provide you with the skills you need for this very rewarding career.

Please call us on 01582 470900 or email us to find out more.

Our new partnership with CarePair

The PA Register and Care Pair

The Disability Resource Centre as partnered with CarePair to help Personal Assistants and carers find jobs and for employers to find carers or PAs.

Anyone currently already on the PA Register will need to register an account on CarePair as the current system will no longer be used.

New job vacancies will be posted on CarePair as soon as they become available. Copies of current vacancies will still be on display at the Disability Resource Centre.

The benefits of using Care Pair are:

New vacancies will be added as soon as they become available – this means there is no need to wait for the updated list to be sent out.
The system will automatically match your availability and work tasks to those being sought by the employer and highlight these for you.
You can update your details easily including contact details and availability.
The new system means that we can put people in touch with each other much quicker for interviews to be arranged.
Registering an account on CarePair is fast and isn’t complicated, it just asks the questions you would expect.

Most of the questions are the same as they were on the PA Register application form.

To get started then please visit the CarePair website. If you have any issues with creating an account we would be happy to advise and support by calling 01582 470900 and choosing option 2 from the menu.

Please call us on 01582 470900 or email us to find out more.
