About the Job

This is a great opportunity to spend a year doing something very different and meaningful after graduating from university, before embarking on a further career.

You will provide our client's personal / health care and social support. This is also a "flatmate" type of role which goes far beyond simply care work and includes all the fun things you'd expect a student of 24-year-old to be doing. Like going away for the weekend, going to the cinema, watching TV, socialising with friends and much more!

PAs tell us that with the knowledge that they are having a positive, daily impact on someone's life, and the relaxed, inclusive working environment makes this a unique and exciting opportunity.

Care experience is not required as full training in our client's particular requirements will be provided.




About You:

You are unlikely to have experience in every aspect of our client's support, therefore, full training in his particular needs is provided. You will need to be physically fit, calm, patient and caring

·Interested in Film and TV

·Grasp concepts of substantial (+ nutritious) foods as our client is a vegan.

·Sharp knowledge of the Sciences (preferably Food Science and Nutrition, but not mandatory).

·Ideally have a Driving Licence with car

·Good organisational skills and being able to work on your own initiative

·Have a good sense of humour

·A mature and responsible attitude

·Excellent hearing and communication skills

·Fluent in English

·Be clean and tidy in both your appearance and ways.
