A Companion/Support Assistant is required for 10 flexible hours per week, to support a lady with anxiety issues to lead an independent lifestyle in Slingsby.
The successful applicant must have a good sense of humour as so does our client; and to be a dog lover, as there is a friendly dog on the premises and you will be expected to walk her occasionally.
Other duties are to help with light household and garden duties, occasional personal care and to accompany and participate with social activities such as fitness classes or swimming.
The lady has her own vehicle, but would like the assistant to drive her to appointments, outings and sometimes to go further afield for family visits, therefore, a driver is a must.
The 10 hours are to be divided in to 2 day shifts which could be weekend or weekday and to be flexible, a rota will be drawn up regularly with the other Support Assistant. It maybe that if a social outing is arranged (with notice) you may use all the 10 hours in 1 day, depending on amount of time required!
The rate of pay is £8.57 per hour and £12.86 Bank Holiday rate. There is also 5.6 weeks (pro rata) paid holiday entitlement.
