The ILA supports its customers during the process of advertising for Personal Assistants
to enable them to recruit effectively and safely.
Our customers are the direct employers and the ILA is not a recruitment agency.
What type of work does a Personal Assistant do?
The work done by PAs is extremely varied and depends on the support that the person
with a health or social care need requires. It might range from help around the home,
helping someone with their admin and paperwork, providing personal care, supporting
someone in the community or with social or leisure activities. Some PAs may even
accompany their employer on holiday.
Anyone can work as a PA. Specific experience is often not needed as its more about
finding the right kind of person, whatever someone's background may be.
How many hours does a Personal Assistant work?
There are full-time jobs, part-time jobs, even some live-in jobs. The hours are very
varied too because each employer's needs are different, so there's bound to be a
job which would suit you.
Can a Personal Assistant work on different days?
There are jobs available on every day of the week. This is because each employer's
needs are different. Some may need support on only two days a week, and some may
need more than one Personal Assistant so that they can have support on every day
of the week. There's bound to be a vacancy which fits in with when you want to work.
