Applications from women are welcome . Applications from those of other genders will be considered on a case-by-case basis. I am a young, active disabled postgraduate student and mother in Birmingham.

There would be some flexibility regarding what hours the successful candidate worked, according to their schedule and other commitments.

Pay is £9.80 per hour for weekdays, £11 per hour for weekends, and more for cover for other PAs and emergency call outs.
