A young woman in her early 30’s has recently moved into her own home in Craigmillar. She is looking for one more member to join her brand new team of Female Personal Assistants who will support her in her everyday life, 24 hours a day on a 2:1 basis.


- She has a good sense of humour and enjoys arts and crafts including card and jewellery making. - She is enthusiastic, has an active lifestyle, and would therefore prefer similarly minded people. Staff will have the opportunity to be involved in positive behavioural support with an emphasis on person-centred approach in a multidisciplinary fashion and thus develop invaluable skills in addition to our comprehensive training programme.

Essential criteria

Experience of working with people with complex needs and in a 2:1 way would be preferred, but not essential as full training will be provided. The shift patterns are yet to be finalised, but sleepovers and waking nights will be a part of the cover provided. The new team will plan and agree the shifts and rota in advance.
