Here at Kaleidoscope we can support you to recruit a personnel assistant in a number of ways.
We will assist you in producing a support profile. This allows 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's who have signed up to a list and been vetted in terms of their right to work status. They will also have a portable DBS. These are people who are interested in becoming a PA, or they may already be a PA and 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 vetted the profiles, we can support you to meet the potential 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.
