Home Instead is an award-winning employer that enables people to remain independent in their own homes. We are looking to recruit Personal Assistants in North Hertfordshire including Stevenage, Royston, Baldock, Hitchin, Letchworth, Knebworth and surrounding villages. We currently have some part time vacancies available.   

In 2007 we were recognised as a “Best Employer in Care”, we are regularly recognised for our unique model of companionship led services.  Delivered consistently, bespoke and quality to private clients within their own homes.  We are very different because we match up our befrienders with our clients and only serve people in a minimum of one-hour visits. This enables relationships to blossom and outstanding quality care to be provided.

You will need to be available for our busy times which are:

  • Early mornings/mornings – help prepare breakfast & support with morning routine. or to take clients out.
  • Evenings – to help prepare meals & assist with bedtime routine. (perhaps just a couple of evenings and a couple of hours)
  • Weekends but not every weekend (even if you are just free for an hour or two)


Even if you are only looking for a few hours a week we’d like to chat with you about it. This position will involve supporting clients with everyday tasks and routines, activities in and around their home plus out and about in the community. There will may also be very light personal care involved which may include helping a person get dressed or helping to Moisturiser.
