Register as a personal assistant (PA)
If you already work (or want to work) as a PA, you can join our register to advertise what you can do and when you're available to work.
Once you are registered, we will give your details to anyone who is looking for a PA so they can contact you directly. You will also receive a fortnightly bulletin of PA jobs available.
Your details will not be available to the general public.They will be accessed by us when someone we support needs a PA in an area where you want to work.
You won't be working for us, you'll be working directly for the person who needs help or their family/carers and they will have all the responsibilities as your employer. You can also be self-employed.
Joining our register doesn't guarantee that you'll get a job. We do not recommend any individual PA and employers may carry out appropriate checks before offering you a job.
