I am looking for personal care for a Woman

Drivers licence required: Yes

Hours per week:

Between 6-10 hours per week to be discussed and mutually agreed with the employer

Hourly pay rate:

£12 per hour

I am an outgoing single mother, and I am registered blind. I use a guide dog and have 4 children between the ages of 13 and 18.

I require help in the home with domestic duties and I have a small garden that requires some attention so an enjoyment in gardening (though limited to summer months) would be a bonus! I also require help with the children, helping with their homework tasks including art and reading material.

I enjoy home cooking but am unable to do much of this due to my vision so someone who enjoys to cook or bake would be good.

I also require help outside of the home – with the children as well as with me on my own.

I enjoy going to evening events (comedy nights / theatre) but need someone with me as I am unable to get around unfamiliar venues well.

I also need assistance with taking my guide dog to the park for his 'free run' a few times a week.

Duties include:

  • Other relevant duties as required
  • Administration
  • Housekeeping
  • Shopping
  • Cooking
  • Transportation
  • Companionship
  • Looking after pets
  • Gardening

  • Helping to select outfits that match.
  • Reading
  • Leisure activities
  • Comfortable taking my guide dog on occasion.
  • Accompany me and my children on appointments.

Candidate qualities:

  • Respectful of the employer's privacy and confidentiality
  • Reliable with good timekeeping
  • Able to both follow instructions and work on own initiative
  • Hygienic, tidy and well organised
  • Fit and healthy to undertake the required duties
  • Patient and possess excellent interpersonal skills
  • Honest and cheerful
  • Creative
  • Able to speak and read English to a reasonable standard
  • Must be comfortable with pets
  • Able to always work to high standards of health & safety

  • UK Driving Licence, own car optional as employer has a car
  • Previous experience preferred but this is not as essential as a kind and common sense approach to these roles.
