Social Care Personal Assistant job vacancies

Do you want to become a Personal Assistant in South Tyneside?

We have a range of Personal Assistant (PA) job roles available through our Direct Payments service users. 

A Personal Assistant (PA) is someone who can support an older or disabled person to give them more independence and live their life more fully. PAs need to be good listeners, with a willingness to learn and respond.

The job can be very flexible, offering part or full-time work on different days and at different times. Some PAs work part-time, alongside another job. The role is also suitable for a student or retired person wanting a few hours a week.

The duties of a Personal Assistant vary widely and depend on your client -what kinds of support they need and when. We currently have vacancies working with children and young people and adults offering a range of social time only posts or mixed care packages including personal care and social time.

Enhanced DBS clearance is required for all posts with children and young people.

Please note these vacancies are not employed through South Tyneside Council but through the Individual Service user.
