Job opportunities as a Social Care PA in Neath Port Talbot

Do you know someone who has what it takes to work in a flexible and rewarding job role? Someone who is interested in making a real difference to a person’s everyday life? If so, they may be interested in the full-time and part-time Social Care Personal Assistant (PA) job opportunities available in Neath Port Talbot.

Care & Repair Officer Vacancy 2016 There are currently over 400 people employed as a PA throughout Neath Port Talbot. The majority of these PAs are employed to support people with daily living tasks (e.g. cooking, cleaning and shopping) and carrying out social activities (e.g. attending a local coffee morning or community centre). Being employed as a PA is not just about supporting someone with their personal care (e.g. assisting someone to wash and get dressed).

There are many reasons why people choose to become a PA including a good rate of pay, flexible working arrangements, not needing previous experience, a chance to make a real difference to someone’s life, training opportunities, gaining accredited qualifications and being able to work close to home.

PAs are employed directly by people who receive Direct Payments to arrange and pay for their care and support. Direct Payments are an alternative to the Council arranging a person’s services for them so they are given more choice and control over how, when and where this support is provided.
