How To Register

….if you are looking for a PA

Click here to register on the website and complete your role profile. This is the information that the PA will see so include as much information about the role as you can and something about yourself as well. It is important to give the PA an understanding of the role (eg specific duties, hours required) and also of the person who they will be supporting.

Once you’ve completed your job profile the PA noticeboard support team will check and approve it, and then post it to the website. This will normally be within 4-5 working days.

Please read our guide to employing a PA which contains helpful information and advice.

Some people receive funding from Adult Social Care to pay for their PA. This is called a direct payment and is a means tested assessment. Click here for more information and to find out if you are entitled to support and/or funding from Portsmouth City Council.

If you require support with writing your job description, or you have questions about the next steps please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We are here to support you throughout your PA search and afterwards.
