- Be punctual
- Conduct yourself professionally
- Do some research into the role (a lot of the roles do not require experience, but having some clarity is really helpful)
- Be openly enthusiastic and willing to learn
This depends on what package you're assigned to and whether you're a Live-in or Live-out PA.
Some packages may offer discount on travel, food etc.
For a Live-out PA role, there is the initial application, a phone/skype interview and a week's training within one of their venues across the country,
Lunch and accommodation are paid for whilst there and money is given to you after your 3 months' probation for attending the week.
Very informal, 2 telephone appointments then one face to face. It's very relaxed and on a 121 basis.
- Award-winning training, as well as accommodation and lunch paid for during the week plus money given to you after 3 months' probation for attending
- Flexible contracts
- Apprenticeship schemes
- Accrued holiday pay
- DBS paid for (if not already on the update system)
- 24/7 outsourced support line for mental health of employees
It depends on the assignment really, but so far so good.
You can still apply for work if you dont have a licence
Continued support, award-winning training, great benefits compared to other healthcare companies
There isn't an organisational culture as such... We are just numbers and figures to the office. We aren't people. They do not see through with the support or help that is offered during training.
Pay errors are a big one with this company. They never get it right.
The most challenging was my first assignment with a client. I didn't have previous experience with working with disabled people so there was a lot to learn.
