It sounds like a cheesy pop lyric from the 1980’s. You can imagine a clean cut boy next door staring whimsically out of a train window while he desperately tries to track down the missing person in his life.
Fast forward to the modern age, and this mythological song video that never was could accurately depict my current search for the missing piece of my staff jigsaw. I probably need more than one person, but you get the idea…
I really don’t know why I am bothering as I have never really had much joy via social media in the past, but I have to do something. What worries me is that we are living in an increasingly selfish society where individuals are not bonded by a common goal. There is no pride or sense of attainment in helping your fellow man. You would have thought that at £9.50 an hour there would be plenty of people willing to assist a strong willed individual to reach for the stars, but this is life in the 21st Century. You are out there somewhere, it is about time you revealed yourself.
I am STILL in search of new staff to work alongside me as a personal assistant. This is a fulfilling role that gives you the chance to make a difference to someone else’s life. I am looking for someone who is punctual, reliable, a team player and can be flexible. Word processing skills and a full driving licence are ABSOLUTELY essential to help me get the most out of my life.
There are between 16-30 hours available, though there is the potential for more hours to cover holidays and sickness. This is an ideal opportunity for a student looking to gain experience in social care sector or any empathetic individual who wants to put their time to good use.
If you are interested in this opportunity, or know someone who may be, please get in touch via the Contact page, Facebook or Twitter. Good luck.
Rate of Pay: Flat Rate: £9.50 per hour – Weekly Hours: To be discussed at interview.
