Residential care roles

Personal assistant roles

As a personal assistant, you’ll assist individuals with any aspect of their life where they require care or support. This will usually be in their own home. You could be working full or part time with one individual or working to support a number of clients. Some personal assistants are employed by the individual receiving support, while others work for an agency or choose to be self-employed.

Supported living services roles
