Here at Kaleidoscope we can support you to recruit a personnel assistant.
We do this in a number of ways.
We will support you to produce a support profile. This helps us to devise a job advert for you and tells PA's a little bit about what the role will involve.
We will advertise your vacancy firstly to PA that have signed up to a list and been vetted in terms of their right to work status. They will also have a portable DBS. This is a group of people who are interested in becoming a PA or they may already be a PA but are looking for extra support opportunities.
In order to join the list the PA's are asked to complete some documentation, complete a one page profile and then come in for an interview.
The one page profiles tell you all about the PA, what they like to do, their hobbies and interests and their gifts and skills which can assist you when thinking about if this person is right to support you.
Once you have made a short list we can support you to meet the PA's so you can decide who you want to employ
Most of the PA's already have a portable DBS but some may not. You will need to check this when you meet them
