Looking for empathetic person (musician desirable) for personal assistance job.
by Holly • Cambridge
Hello, my name is Holly, and I'm posting this advert on the behalf of Mark, a piano teacher with MS who is in need of assistance at his workplace. Mark teaches at a school in Cambridge:
"I am looking for someone to give me practical assistance at a school where I teach piano one day a week in term time. Your role would be to help me with the physical things I can't manage – such as retrieving music, getting food/drink, and taking notes during lessons. Occasionally I may ask you to provide rhythmic support with specific musical exercises, so being a musician would be a big plus. I'm looking for someone who is motivated, with friendly and flexible attitude. A good sense of humour helps. If you are interested, please get in touch. Working hours: 9.30-4.30 Tuesday in school term time, with the possibility to move to Thursday if Tuesday is not doable. Pay: £10 ph."
This is a really lovely job. Mark is a very friendly, funny person and the school is extremely welcoming. I'm moving onto different work, but I'll sorely miss this one. If you are interested in working for Mark and have any questions please don't hesitate to contact!
