Recruiting a PA

We have produced a booklet, with funding from Skills for Care, specifically for people who employ their own Personal Assistants..

The booklet gives advice from recruitment and interview to employment. It gives sample documents including blank advertisements, letters, job descriptions and employment contracts which you can download and use. These are just samples and can be added to or amended as necessary. You can download the whole booklet or just the individual pages/documents as required from the links below
