What is a Personal Assistant (PA)?
A PA is a person who is paid to give someone support. The support that you can give as a PA can be anything from helping to put someone’s socks on in the morning, to driving them to places, to preparing their meals to personal care. You chose what job you want to do which suits your life and abilities.
You can register and find work that suits you and your life on the PA Noticeboard website. There are no criteria or qualifications required to register on the PA Noticeboard, just a desire to support and work with people. Portsmouth City Council is able to support those who use this service.
On the PA Noticeboard you can browse vacancies to find a role with the tasks and hours that suit you. Because the individual/client writes their own job description, there is a wide range of job roles and hours available. Common tasks might involve personal care, assisting with meals, social support, shopping and domestic tasks such as ironing and hoovering.
How does it work?
