Find the Personal Assistant (PA) you need

Whether you need help with domestic tasks e.g. cleaning and cooking, personal care, shopping or even sorting out your paperwork, a Personal Assistant (PA) is someone who works for you. You decide who you would like to help you, when they come in and what they do. 

Find-a-pa is a confidential on line matching service which allows you to search and make contact with people who work as PAs. You can register your details on line for a small fee (£15 for one month or £30 for 3 months or £60 for one year) search for suitable PAs and send secure messages to PAs with the right skills, experience and availability. If you have a Direct Payment you can register free. PAs also register free and can also build a profile on line, search for suitable employers and send secure messages to find a job to suit their skills.

Log onto to find out more. The site now incorporates our recruitment handbook which gives great advice and tips on the process of employing a PA.

"I have recruited two PAs via Ruils find-a-pa website. We interviewed four, all living locally with some nursing experience and found all the candidates to be excellent, in fact we had some difficulty choosing between them. We are grateful to Ruils for facilitating this process."
