Summary

I am an outgoing woman in my fifties with a disability living in my own home. I like swimming, carriage driving, lace making and painting. I enjoy going to social clubs and eating out.

There will be times when the employer and her staff will need to contact you. This may be outside normal working hours, including bank holidays, evenings & weekends, in the event of sudden staff sickness or emergency situations. These instances will be added to time sheet at a minimum rate of 15 mins per call. The employee is required to keep records on an ‘on call’ sheet. 

The employer accepts that you will not always be contactable or in a position to assist and will have a designated back up.
