Personal Assistant (Aide)

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

I am looking for bright, well-presented and motivated people to work on my team of assistants who make my busy life practical.

It's a role which is very varied, and you can make as much of it as you wish: there's personal care, it involves helping me as I do my job, there's cooking and stuff in my home, and I'll rely upon you to organise things so it is physically and practically possible to do everything I do; until recently that included travel and going out with friends, but during the pandemic it is more to do with enabling me to work from home.

The working pattern of this job means that you live-in day and night for one-third of each cycle (pre-pandemic this was five days per a fortnight, this may now vary for biosecurity/quarantining reasons) and then you have two-thirds of your time off duty at home. You will be paid a regular salary for committing to this. During each shift you stay with me in my home, or wherever I am, to be available as and when I need help.

Currently recruiting for the following start dates:

  • January 2022
  • Spring/Summer 2022
  • All dates in 2022-23 academic year

What we are looking for

This is a fantastic opportunity for you if:

  • you are a new graduate wanting time to plan your next career steps,
  • you are here in the UK on a working holiday visa, or
  • you are taking a gap year before or after uni.

You will be organised, practical and self-motivated, with attention to detail and the ability to plan. You must have excellent interpersonal skills and be a fast learner. This role gives you the opportunity to learn important transferable skills and gives you flexibility to travel, work elsewhere or take part in other activities in your time off. The time off is enough for you to have this free time and re-quarantine if necessary before returning. You can do this job while based or living anywhere within a few hours travel of Cambridge. Minimum commitment of four months, maximum one year.
